Danny Smith is from Mt. Morris, and has been racing about 5 years. He lived near a track as a kid, and although no one in his family raced, he often went to watch. It was his friend and fellow racer, Jimmy Bass who got him interested in racing. Danny competes in all the events at the Eve of Destruction in his 1997 Ford Crown Victoria. The Figure 8 Races, the Enduro and the Trailers, and the Flag Pole Race are his favorites. Danny, in car #06, sporting two American flags, wowed the crowd recently with a victory in the first heat of the Flag Pole Race. Danny installs carpet for a living, and enjoys riding dirt bikes and snowmobiles when he isn’t racing.
