Looking ahead at 2012Thursday, January 12, 2012
Posted by: Angie Smith

The New Year is here and I am sad to say that our sponsorship process is still going. Nothing has appeared yet. We are hoping something comes about so we both can race this season. The plan as of right now is for me to sit out the 2012 season. Something I am not looking forward to at all. I am hoping and praying something comes up whether its last minute or not because as all of you know I want to race. We will see what happens. I will be helping Matt and Michael Ray at the track this year. I think my duties will increase on the race team but I am OK with that.

We had a fabulous Christmas as always. It’s one of the only times of year we get to spend time with both of our families. It’s also a time for us to spend time with each other and relax and that is what I have been doing. I bought Matt a new game for Christmas called iRacing. It is like a mini NASCAR cockpit with a steering wheel, screen and all kinds of different controls. Ever since he has got this he has been consumed with it. I know some fellow NHRA racers have them as well. I am glad he loved his Christmas present. Matt got me something very special to me. I have wanted these canvas wraps of my bridal portraits. They are expensive so I had not ordered them just yet. Well he got them for me and I was super excited. Now we have to hang them in our house and that will be another challenge in itself.

If you guys are followers of our Facebook page I know you guys have heard about the new dog and cat beds my sister and I are making. They are fun to make and it gives me an opportunity to get creative. We made a few beds for our dogs and they loved them so much that we decided to start making them for the public. We call them Cozy Critter Beds. So far it has been a hit for us. We started a page for the beds on Facebook. Go like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CozyCritterBeds . We are making everything from cat and dog prints, professional team prints, college prints, to almost anything you want. If we don’t have it we will order it. Check them out and if you like them put an order in today.

Thanks again for everyone for supporting Matt Smith Racing in the past years. Please continue to support us and pray for us to get funding to race NHRA in 2012.
