Mark Smith Leads the Way in 2020 Winged 360 Sprint Car Power Rankings!

Lonnie Wheatley, BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (December 17, 2020) – After coming close over each of the past two years, Mark Smith finally reached the top rung of the Rod End Supply Winged 360 Sprint Car Power Rankings ladder during the 2020 season.

Finishing third in 2018 and then second in 2019, the Sunbury, PA, racer broke out of the gates quicky in 2020 with six wins by the end of February and went on to amass 20 victories in Winged 360 Sprint Car action at 14 different tracks throughout eight different states to take the number one ranking by 146 points over California’s Shane Golobic.

Fourteen of Smith’s triumphs came in USCS action with other victories including a pair of ASCS National Tour wins in Hockett/McMillin Memorial preliminary action at Lucas Oil Speedway, a pair of URC wins, an ASCS Regional win at I-30 Speedway and an East Bay “King of 360’s” preliminary win.

Smith’s top ranking is the fifth time he has landed among the top-six in Rod End Supply Winged 360 Sprint Car Power Rankings over the past six years.

Golobic picked up seven wins over the course of the season including a $5,000 MSTS prelim win at Huset’s in September and then the $5,094 “Tribute to Mac Tiner” at Placerville in October to land a career-best finish of second in Rod End Supply Winged 360 Sprint Car Power Rankings. 

After topping the Rod End Supply Winged 360 Sprint Car Power Rankings for the previous four years, Texas’ Sam Hafertepe, Jr., settled for third in 2020.  Racing to a fifth consecutive ASCS National championship, Hafertepe, Jr., made the most of a covid-limited tour slate by racking up ten overall wins including prestigious Short Track Nationals and Hockett/McMillin Memorial wins.

Washington’s J.J. Hickle compiled a strong year to finish fourth with Dale Howard rounding out the top five.

Blake Carrick ranked sixth with the balance of the top ten including Blake Hahn, Derek Hagar, Tanner Carrick and Jack Dover.

While Hafertepe, Jr., has  finished among the top-ten six times since the inception of the Rod End Supply Winged 360 Sprint Car Power Rankings in 2013, Hickle, Howard, Blake Carrick and Tanner Carrick each cracked the top ten for the first time.
