For immediate release:
Mark Smith duels to USCS Snow-Free Sprint Car Winternationals Night One win at Hendry County on Friday.

Clewiston, Florida - February 3, 2023 -
Sunbury, Pennsylvania's Mark  Smith had to beat pole-sitter, Paulie Colagiovalli from Cisero, NY to the first turn on lap one from outside the front row and hold on to collect his 41st career USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour win.

The event was the 900th-ever USCS Main event.  The event also served as  the  Snow-Free Sprint Car Winternationals 25-lap prelim at Hendry County Motorsports Park and the Round #3 of the 5th annual USCS Winter Heat mini-series.

Colagiovanni had earned his pole position starting spot after winning the Hoosier Speed Dash over the top six drivers to create the final starting order for the USCS A-Main.

Colagiovanni kept Smith in his sights and was chasing him through lapped traffic and challenging when two late race cautions gave Mark Smith clean air with zero lap cars to deal with twice over the last five Laps.

When the checkers waved, Mark Smith added the victory to his resume and runner-up Paulie Colagiovanni,  and the 2022 USCS Winter Heat mini-series  Champion, Davey Franek from Wantage, NJ standing on the podium in that order.

Ankeny, Iowa's Chris Martin followed in fourth place and Quebec's Jordan Piorier rounded out the top five.

Two-time USCS National Champion,  Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, AR finished sixth to garner the Willwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award after starting fourteenth.

2021 USCS Champion, Danny Smith from Chillicothe, Ohio finished seventh followed by Illinois young gun Corbin Gurley in eighth, Ontario Canadiam Liam Martin in ninth and 14 year-old hot-shoe Gavan Boschele from Mooresville, NC completed the top-ten
