"We unloaded with the best race truck I have ever had." says driver Jack Smith. Unfortuantely for Smith and his SealWrap / MB Motorsports crew, that was as good as it got at Chicagoland Speedway for the Fast Five 225. Smith continues, "The crew worked so hard to get this truck set up and it really was running great until the engine began to give us trouble and the handling went away." Post race tear down showed that the handling more than went away- the lower control arm was broken, yet Smith still managed to bring the #63 SealWrap / Operation Homefront Ford F-150 home in 23rd position, even being dramatically down on horsepower. "After running so well at Atlanta," said team owner Mike Mittler, "we're dissappointed for the folks at SealWrap and the Soldiers from Ft. Leonard Wood that joined us at the track as part of our effort to support Operation Homefront. We'll get 'em next time." Next time for Jack Smith & MB Motorsports' SealWrap / Operation Homefront Ford is October 22nd at Talladega Motorspeedway, where the team will once again be supporting Operation Homefront. Race fans can support MB Motorsports and SealWrap's efforts by making an $5 donation by texting HERO to 50555 or by contacting their local Operation Homefront chapter to donate or volunteer.
