The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour (WSMT) was a stock car racing series owned by NASCAR and operated in the Southeastern United States as part of its Modified Division. The series began in 1989 as the Southern Modified Auto Racing Teams (S.M.A.R.T.) before NASCAR took over the series in 2005. The Whelen Southern Modified Tour used nearly identical rules as its northeastern-based counterpart the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

The series merged with the Modified Tour in 2017.[1]

History

NASCAR itself has a long tradition of Modified racing in the Southeastern U.S. Prior to the formation of today's Northeastern-based Whelen Modified Tour in 1985. The evolution of Modified racing began in the late 1940s with the first NASCAR sanctioned race taking place at Daytona beach course in February,1948. Coupes and sedans were the vehicles of choice and provided a new form of entertainment as tracks began spring up all over the country. NASCAR Modified teams competed in championship events up and down the east coast, including stops at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, North Wilkesboro Speedway and Martinsville Speedway. Top drivers from North Carolina and Virginia, such as Ralph Brinkley, Ray Hendrick and Satch Worley, were regular NASCAR Modified competitors.[2]

In the late eighties, while modified racing was maintaining its popularity in the Northeast U.S. Late Model Stock cars moved into the spotlight throughout the south. The downward slide suffered by the southern modified's made many people feel that the division was fading and quite possibly disappearing altogether from the region.

The S.M.A.R.T. TOUR Era

In September 1988, after a rain-out in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, a group of dedicated car owners and drivers banded together and formed the Southern Modified Auto Racing Teams, or S.M.A.R.T., as they became known to race fans throughout the region. The group had the goal for the club to strive to return Modified's to their previous state of popularity in the South. For the next 16 years Modified racing through the S.M.A.R.T. Tour raced up and down the Carolina's and Virginia.

1989 season

The Inaugural Season included a total 6 races. The Schedule had two race each at North Wilkesboro and Pulaski County and one race each at Langley and Myrtle Beach. The first race in series history was on April 9, 1989 at Langley Speedway in Hampton, VA. 18 modified's entered the inaugural event. Frank Fleming's pole-winning lap of 15.990 seconds (89.660 mph) for the event was the quickest in Langley's history. Robert Jeffreys earned the honor of being the first race winner by holding off Philip Smith. At the Lowe's 150 on April 15 at North Wilkesboro Speedway, driver Don Smith had to be cut from his car after crashing on the second lap. Smith had a broken left shoulder from the crash. Northern Modified superstar Jimmy Spencer won in his only career S.M.A.R.T. start after recovering from a mid-race crash to finish two car-lengths ahead of Gary Myers. The season concluded at Pulaski County Speedway on October 15. Johnny Bush grabbed his only career series victory while Philip Smith was crowned the tour's inaugural champion.

At the Season Opener, Michael Clifton won his only career series race, holding off Junior Miller in the waning laps. L.W.

Burt Myers won his only race of the year at the Friendship 150 (May), holding off his brother Jason Myers. Jay Foley captured a dominating victory at the Friends of Friendship 150, leading all but the first two laps en route to a wide margin of victory over runner-up Burt Myers. At the Caraway 150 (July), L.W. Miller grabbed yet another victory at his favorite track, sneaking into the lead with just a dozen laps to go and holding off Jay Hedgecock for the trophy. Brian Loftin began a tear at the ASA/S.M.A.R.T. 150 in which he would win 4 of the final 6 races of the season. Lofton held off Junior Miller for the victory at historic Myrtle Beach. The race was certainly competitive, as a season-high seven lead changes punctuated the event. Loftin would slip by the dominant Jay Hedgecock machine with just thirteen laps to go and never looked back at the next event. Ironically, Hedgecock lose this race at Caraway with the deciding pass on exactly the same lap as At the Caraway 150 (July). Loftin won the Star Country/Old Milwaukee 150 after a green-white-checkered extended the event by ten laps. Northern Modified star Ted Christopher captured his only career series race at the North vs. South Shootout Qualifier, holding off Tim Brown on a green-white-checkered. At the season finale and ultimately the final race of the S.M.A.R.T. era, Brian Loftin captured the victory by edging out L.W. Miller. However, Miller would beat Loftin by 116 points to win his 2nd straight season championship. There were 6 different winners during the season. L.W. Miller and Brian Loftin each won 4 races to lead all drivers in wins.

In late 2004, NASCAR announced it was taking over the S.M.A.R.T. Tour and bringing it under the NASCAR banner.

NASCAR Tour era

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour was established in 2005 taking over what had formerly been the Southern Modified Auto Racing Tour (SMART) after the collapse of the organization as part of the breakup of the American Speed Association in late 2004. Whelen Industries, who sponsors the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour agreed to sponsor the Southern Tour series, which became the Whelen Southern Modified Tour.

2005 season

The inaugural NASCAR era season held 12 events, beginning on March 26 at Caraway Speedway and ended on October 29 at Ace Speedway. The inaugural event for the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour was the Southern Modified Tour 150 at Caraway Speedway on March 26. Burt Myers won the first pole for the NASCAR era of the southern-based Modified Tour. While leading the event Jay Hedgecock had to pulled his car into the pits on the 65th lap with an engine problem. Ted Christopher, a star driver on the northeastern-based NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, inherited the lead from Hedgecock and paced the field for the remaining laps on his way to the victory. In the April 16th race at Caraway, the tour's 3rd race under NASCAR sanction, Burt Myers led the first 145 laps but fellow rival Junior Miller stayed on his back bumper for most of the race. Miller and Myers bumped and banged and racinged each other hard lap after lap. Miller made the pass for the lead on Myers with only 5 laps remaining to score the victory. At the July 1 event at Caraway Bud Pole winner Jay Hedgecock was on point. Hedgecock had lapping all but the top 8 cars, but Brian Crammer was coming as he had worked his way from his 11th place starting spot to 2nd by the halfway point. Crammer had been chasing down Hedgecock during the 2nd half and caught Hedgecock with 20 laps to go. Crammer began putting hard pressure on Hedgecock with 10 to go and with 5 to go made a move on Hedgecock coming off of turn 2. Hedgecock and Crammer bumped wheels resulting in Crammer being sent spinning while Hedgecock kept the lead. Crammer retaliated under the caution by hitting Hedgecock's car but Hedgecock was able to continue. A crash during the green-white-checker attempt sent the race over its scheduled distance. Hedgecock's car ran out of gas before the race was red flagged during track clean up. Brian Loftin inherited the lead for the next another green-white-checkered attempt and held off Tim Brown for the win. Burt Myers was the fastest in qualifying for the Advance Auto Parts 199 at Bowman Gray Stadium, but drew the 5th starting position. This was the tour's first visit to Bowman Gray Stadium, the track many tour drivers call home, since 1992. Hedgecock led the first 71 laps until a spinning car hit the infield and shot dirt onto the track coming out of the 4th turn. Hedgecock's car skidded in the dirt and careened into the outside guardrail as Tim Brown zipped past into the lead. Brown stayed there until the lap 137 when Myers squeezed inside and completed a pass. Myers held off the win-hungry Tim Brown in the end. The Made in America Whelen 300 at Martinsville Speedway was a combo race for both Modified Tours. The Event was the first NASCAR Modified Tour event held at the track since 2002 and the first night race held at the historic .526-mile track. Ted Christopher won the overall event as Brian Loftin was the top-finishing driver from the Southern Tour, finishing 12th, but credited as first-place towards the Southern Modified Tour. A special Twin 100-lap event was held at Ace Speedway as a Labor Day doubleheader. Burt Myers won the first 100-lap race while Junior Miller got the win in the second 100-lap race. Jay Hedgecock won his 4th Pole of the season at the 6th and final season visit to Caraway Speedway. Hedgecock lead 115 of the first 133 laps and looked to be closing in on his first win of the season. Hedgecock's season of bad luck continued as during a caution period on lap 134 Hedgecock came into the pits with engine trouble ending his night. Brian Loftin held off a hard-charging Junior Miller over the final laps to win. Jay Hedgecock finally avoided any bad luck at the season finale, Whelen 150, at Ace Speedway. Hedgecock lead all 150 lap and won easily over 2nd place Brian Loftin. Junior Miller, By finishing 8th, won the 2005 Inaugural NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Championship. There were 5 different winners during the season with Brian Loftin winning the most with 4.

Type of Race Cars & Rules

The tour features 600 horsepower open-wheeled modified's which run 15" wide Hoosier tires to give the cars added traction to attain speeds of up to 125 mph on some of the fastest short tracks in the South. Rules are similar to those used by the NASCAR Modified Tour. Cars must have a minimum weight of 2,900 pounds, maintain a wheelbase between 101 and 105 inches, and using 350 to 358 cubic-inch engines.

As the S.M.A.R.T. tour, the series added excitement to each event by allowing each competitor two laps of qualifying to determine their starting positions. Once these positions are established, the six fastest qualifiers draw numbers between 1 and 6. This shake up of the front runners adds to the action by letting the top six determine who is fastest competitor versus the fastest qualifier. Another exciting feature of the S.M.A.R.T. tour was that while all laps run under caution are counted, each race must end under green flag conditions insuring the fans will witness an exciting down-to-the-wire finish at each event.
