Networking at Phoenix International Raceway

On Thursday, Jason Bowles edged out Eric Holmes and Steve Park for Jimmie Johnson Foundation 150 title in the Camping World Series West. Friday found Greg Biffle and his Roush Fenway Racing team gambling their way to the win. Biffle didn't pit on the last stop in the Nationwide Series race. The 50-year-old Mark Martin became the third-oldest winner in NASCAR history Saturday night, snapping a 97-race winless streak with a dominating run.

However, the racing was not the only reason Moses Smith was busy at the Phoenix International Raceway. The weekend provided the 2008 NASCAR Camping World Series West - Most Popular Driver plenty of opportunity to network.

Moses was interviewed by Larry Henry of Pit Pass USA . What helps set Pit Pass USA with Larry Henry apart from the rest of the motorsports programs is that he is commitment to short-track racing all across America. Larry strives to recognize up-and-coming Saturday night racers and let them tell their story to the audience. Click here to listen to Pit Pass USA Click here to listen to Moses’ Interview

Moses also met with several local journalists including Phoenix-based NASCAR writer, race handicapper, general freelance writer, and local race team PR representative, Becca Gladden. Megan Gordon, Southwest Valley Education Reporter from The Arizona Republic | spent race morning with the team, both interviewing and photographing. She produced a slide-video entitled “I Call Myself a Lifer. Click here to view the video.

However, Moses’ favorite networking opportunity was that he was able to meet with some of his fans. A couple of tweeple (people who use twitter) have organized a fan club for Moses. If you twitter, you can interact with the fan club at @StreetTeam16. They also have a website called Mo’s Minion Street Team.

Moses met @StreetTeam16 member LaMont Bankson (@AZSpudKing) and friends at the PIR Cantina. They were able to ask questions and learn about their favorite NASCAR Camping World Series West driver. LaMont sent Moses the photos used in this article, showing off their new Moses Smith Racing Gear.
