Regan Smith, No. 78 running strong for Monster Mile Regan Smith, driver of the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing/CSX Play It Safe Chevrolet Impala, heads into Sunday’s FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks
Following the finish of the May 12 Bojangles Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, Regan Smith’s no. 78 Furniture Row Racing/CSX Play It Safe Chevrolet looked like it had been sideswiped by a freight train—which made his top-20 finish all the more impressive.
For the fourth time in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season, Regan Smith’s Furniture Row Racing no. 78 Chevrolet Impala will carry the CSX Transportation “I BRAKE FOR TRAINS” bumper sticker, and the team’s pit box and crew uniforms will carry that same theme.
Furniture Row Racing/CSX Play It Safe Chevrolet driver Regan Smith is without a doubt thinking about repeating his 2011 win at Darlington on May 12, but right now he’s focusing on the May 6 restrictor-plate race at Talladega Superspeedway.
CSX Transportation has partnered with Furniture Row Racing and the No. 78 Chevrolet Impala driven by Regan Smith in NASCAR’s top-tier Sprint Cup Series as an associate sponsor for the first half of the 2012 season. The six-race sponsorship program is built around CSX’s “Play it Safe” highway/railroad grade crossing and pedestrian safety campaign to urge pedestrians and motorists to exercise caution around railroad tracks.
It may be called “stock car racing,” but the racecars running in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series are anything but stock. They may look a little like their production namesakes, but that’s where the similarity ends.
CSX’s “Play It Safe Around Railroad Tracks” public safety program and its sponsorship of Regan Smith and Furniture Row Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series are part of the company’s Beyond Our Rails corporate citizenship program.
