Apparently, everyone loves Zane Smith, and what’s not to love?

The 23-year-old driver from California basically has done nothing but win since he started racing 20 years ago in his hometown of Huntington Beach.

Smith has taken the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series by storm since joining the competition in 2020. He finished runner-up in both 2020 and 2021 before capturing the regular season and overall championship last year.

The 2022 title also helped Smith’s team, Front Row Motorsports (FRM), capture its first owner championship on the Craftsman Truck Series.

Zane Smith: 23 and Already a NASCAR Star

Smith was named Craftsman Rookie of the Year and Most Popular Driver in 2020, and he was also Rookie of the Year in 2018 in the ARCA Racing Series, where he was runner-up that year with four victories.

Currently, Smith sits No. 2 in the Craftsman standings, thanks to wins at Daytona and the Circuit of the Americas to go along with a second and third-place finish in two other races.


You can be part of the Zane Smith magic this Craftsman Truck season. In partnership with Front Row Motorsports, Tipico is offering customers a chance to “Ride with Zane”: If you deposit $38 into a Tipico account, you will get $150 in bet credits AND a spot on Zane’s No. 38 Ford F-150 truck where you can put your name, or maybe the name of someone you want to honor.

The promo code is ZANE38.

The names will be displayed on Zane’s truck during his race July 8 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Maybe you want to honor mom or dad, or another member of the family, a veteran, one of your old teachers … the sky’s the limit! This offer runs through June, but the maximum amount of naming spaces is 300 and the last day or sign-ups is June 23, so act fast – as fast as Zane does on the track!

And you don’t have to deposit only $38. As a special incentive, the five largest depositors during this promotion will be offered VIP passes to the race and/or another Truck Series event of their choosing.

The offer is valid for residents of the four states Tipico currently serves:


Smith launched his racing career near the Southern California beaches at the BMX course before moving into motorized karts and Legends cars. After notching more than 100 wins in juniors competition, he began to race professionally as a teenager in Super Late Models and the ARCA Racing Series.

Smith’s runner-up finish on ARCA in 2018 caught the attention of superstar NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., who signed Smith to a part-time schedule on the Xfinity Series, the racing level just below the NASCAR Cup Series.

Smith joined FRM in 2022.

Front Row Motorsports, based in Mooresville, N.C. and owned by Bob Jenkins, has drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series -- Michael McDowell in the No. 34 Ford Mustang, Todd Gilliland in the No. 38 Ford Mustang and Zane Smith in his No. 38 Ford F-150.

McDowell won the Daytona 500 in 2021 in a thriller prior to Smith's historic Craftsman title season in 2022.
