Zane Smith and the No. 38 RTA gigFAST INTERNET® Ford team heads to the Darlington (S.C.) Raceway for the Buckle Up South Carolina 200. Friday night’s race will be the first for the RTA gigFAST INTERNET colors this season.

RTA – Rural Telecommunications of America, Inc. provides gigFAST INTERNET, VOICE and TV to America’s rural communities. The company was founded in 2018 by Jim Edwards and Don Workman to bring gigFAST INTERNET to America’s rural communities to help bridge the “digital divide”. The company is veteran owned as Workman served in the United States Air Force.

While many internet providers mention gig speeds, RTA created the gigometer to measure your internet speed. You can check yours at

RTA now has customers in 22 states and has been involved with NASCAR since 2020 with Smith.

Smith and the RTA gigFAST Ford will take on the “Lady in Black” starting with practice and qualifying on Friday at 3:05 p.m. ET.

The 200-mile race is set for 7:30 p.m. ET that evening.


After finishing third at the Kansas Speedway, Smith and the No. 38 RTA gigFAST Ford team now lead the regular season championship standings.

Smith has four previous starts at the Darlington Raceway with a best finish of eighth. In fact, Darlington is one of only four active NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series tracks that the 2022 champion does not have a top-five at.

The team is looking to change that this Friday night.


“One of the biggest things for us to focus on this weekend is tire wear. Darlington is brutal when it comes to tires. Our pit strategy and tire management is going to play a huge role this weekend.

“We look at all the tracks that we have raced at with Zane and Darlington is one track where we want to give him a better finish. Really, we can win it if we do the right things on Friday night.”


“I had a top-10 there last spring, but I know we can win this weekend with the gigometer on the hood. I think it would be cool to have a top-five finish at every track in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. There are a few we need to check off that list.

“I cannot thank RTA enough for their support. They have been great partners of mine suppling gigFAST INTERNET to our team and we just continue to grow.”
