How has NASCAR Truck Zane Smith been performing on the track?

Moving to his on-track persona, Smith has racked up five wins in his Truck Series career. In fact, two of those wins came in the current Truck Series campaign. He won the season-opening race at the Daytona International Speedway and the race at the Circuit of The Americas.

His first career win was in 2020 at the Michigan International Speedway. He followed it up with a win at the Dover International Speedway in the same year. Admittedly, 2021 was a little tougher, as he only came away with one win in the penultimate race at Martinsville.

The good news for him is that he has had a strong start to the 2022 Truck Series season. After his Daytona win, he was 5th at Atlanta, won at COTA, and was in the Top 10 at Martinsville and Bristol. The only blip on his radar was Las Vegas, where he finished 2nd, but got disqualified later.

As it turned out, he failed post-race inspection due to non-compliant lug nuts. Other than that hiccup, it has generally been a fine campaign for the NASCAR Truck Series driver.
