We get back into our top-10 points standings in the 2021 Qwick Wick Can-Am Midgets presented by Miller Office Trailers season. Finishing in a strong 4th place is not just the only current woman in the series, but also the only woman to win a feature event since the club’s inception in 1965.
Dominque Smith drives the #49 TQ midget for owner Cliff Walsh. She followed in her brother’s Lucas’ foot steps running the #49 car. Dom came into the series in 2017 taking Rookie of the Year honors with some great finishes. Smith is the only woman to win a Can-Am Midget sanctioned feature event. She did this at her home track of Flamboro Speedway in 2019 holding off the hard charging points contenders to do so. This has got her confidence high every time stepping behind the wheel since.
With the 2020 season basically a wash, this momentum carried over to 2021 leading into her best year yet! Dom accumulated a total of 1,484 points with her best points night coming at Sauble Speedway in August. She also held the points lead for a week or two as well with consitent finishes. Smith accumulated a few podium visits adding another win to her career coming at the very drama and caution filled race at Sauble Speedway on the August long weekend. Dom looks to build on her 2021 season going into 2022.
