Remembering Mike Smith
Mike smith was a fearce competitor for well over 4 decades all over the south and in big money bracket racing. Mike was known for his shirtless appearance and always had a cigar in hand. Mike was one of those old school racers, in that he would bend over backwards to help you get to the starting line just to put you on the trailer.
Mike was not only an icon figure in the racing world, he was a huge figuer in his small town of Roanoke Alabama. There, Mike owned the local machanic shop and was a local firefighter.
Outside of racing, Mike enjoyed his Harley and spending time with his kids and 6 grand children, which he adored. Mike will also be heavly missed at the og million. For over 10 years Mike was the man behind the grill at the racers appreciation steak dinner, cooking for thousands of racers over the years. Mike will be greatly missed in this world!
