The old saying goes that nice guys always seem to finish last. That’s not exactly the case for NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour driver John Smith.
Smith (No. 25 Tutterow Surveying/Rick’s Home Repair Chevrolet) is easily one of the most respected figures in the Whelen Southern Modified Tour garage area – both on and off the track. The 33-year-old Mount Airy, N.C., native isn’t afraid to rub fenders with the best of the best if the situation arises, but Smith prefers to race his fellow competitors with respect.
