Biography

Stanley Smith (born September 29, 1949) is a retired NASCAR driver and dirt-track racer.

At the 1993 DieHard 500 at Talladega, Smith nearly died from a basilar skull fracture in a massive crash—the same type of injury that later killed Tony Roper, Adam Petty, Kenny Irwin Jr., Dale Earnhardt and Jason Leffler. Fortunately, Smith was able to recover from the injury. The crash was better known for fellow competitor Jimmy Horton flipping over the wall and rolling down the embankment outside the track.

The multi-car crash happened on lap 69 when Smith clipped Horton's car. Horton then hit three other cars before launching over the wall, ending up completely outside the track. In that crash, Smith hit the wall almost head-on and required medical attention. As a result of this and possibly other wrecks, Talladega installed "catch fencing" along the entire track, not just where spectator stands were present. Another effect of the crash is roof flaps on NASCAR cars. While Smith would never race in the Winston Cup Series again, he would return to competition in the regional Gatorade All Pro Series in 2001, and at the age of 54, win a series event at Kentucky in September 2004. Smith also drove in the Busch Grand National Series, making four starts between 1991 and 1992.

Incidentally, in his first start at the 1990 DieHard 500 at the same track, Smith was involved in a pit road mishap when he lost control of his car and hit several crew members for Tracy Leslie's team. No one was seriously injured.
