Most of my friends call me "Jimsf" since JMSF is annoying to say. :D

About Me

Real name is Jaylen Smith-Fry. I'm a long time motorsports fan, having watched NASCAR since the early 2000's. Since then I've come to know about many, many oval, dirt, and road course series as well. Now, I'll watch just about anything and have some knowledge about way too much, lol.

In 2017 I was hired by Baer Field Motorsports Park thanks to this knowledge, and I was trained to become a racing scorer. I can score races both by hand and mainly by computer (Westhold). I worked at BFMP from 2017 to it's closing in 2019, not missing a race in that time span. For 2020 and 2021, I was picked up by Plymouth Speedway as their lead scorer.

As for what I do around here, I mostly just sort out and organize things. Especially sorting out drivers and tracks and making sure everything is in the right place :) But, I add and majorly edit the odd race here and there.

For my non-motorsports stuff, I am very much into Japanese culture, I can speak a bit of Japanese (かっこいい、でしょうね?:D)。I also recently got very into K-Pop (Especially the group ITZY :)) and Korean culture as well, I intend to learn some of the Korean language. I play a lot of racing games, along with visual novels and various other video games (GTA, etc.). I also enjoy learning about world history and other sports.

Race Tracks I've Been To

(I'll get more detailed and add relevant links when I have the time)
Allen County Coliseum Expo - For the Rumble in Fort Wayne. Haven't missed a night since 2012!
Angola Motorsport Speedway - One time many years ago, the ARCA Trucks were there and it ran real late :D.
Baer Field Motorsports Park - Countless times growing up, as well as for scoring. Including the Three-Eights, Quarter-Mile Dirt, 1/6th Mile Dirt Track, and the old 1/6th Pavement Kart Track when my Uncle used to race there regularly.
Circus City Speedway - One time to score a weekly show w/ USAC Regional Midgets as well.
Eldora Speedway - A few times, for various WoO and USAC events. Also the 2014 NASCAR Truck race. Definitely went to the 4-Crown one year, can't remember which year :P
Hartford Speedway - One time to score the SOD race listed above.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway - NASCAR Cup/XFINITY Monday Doubleheader that was caused by rain outs (2018, iirc). Also my Uncle and I got to do a lap around the track as a part of a Miata Club rally during Carb Day one year.
Indianapolis Raceway Park - Not for a race, but my relatives got to do a "Late Model Experience" of sorts and run some laps. I was in the infield to see their laps.
Kokomo Speedway - Quite a few times, usually for July 4th and End of Season Specials (because fireworks). Definitely seen the USAC Sprints and Midgets here.
Michigan International Speedway - A number of times. Mainly for NASCAR Cup races, but the first time was an ARCA race (same day as cup Quali, J.J. Yeley's only career pole!) in 2007.
Plymouth Speedway - Mainly for scoring, but went to a couple races before then, namely a WoO race in 2016.
Stateline Speedway - None of the ones on here, a Kart track literally on the IN/OH border in Edon, OH.
The Hog Barn - An Indoor Track for Karts in a Columbus, OH fairgrounds area.
Watkins Glen International (Boot Course) - for the 2022 Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Beautiful facility, with great fan access.
Winchester Speedway - Only to score the races listed above. The 37 degree banking is way more intimidating in person.
