Former 125 race winner Kelly Smith isn't quite done yet. The 37-year-old will line up at the Kansas City Arenacross for Team Faith KTM. Below is the PR from Team Faith. 

We spent the week off testing with our Watercraft National Champion Kelly Smith. At 37 years old, he's still got it. Kelly has a huge list of motocross, and arenacross accomplishments and has nothing more to prove. So why would a 37-year-old come out of moto retirement to race arenacross? Kelly says he simply wants to help his team, and glorify Jesus. Kelly knows we need a rider and feels like he can contribute. Testing went well. Kelly quickly got comfortable on the Team Faith/Fly Racing/Ohlins/Pirelli/ KTM and as of this morning has agreed to pilot the #37 machine in Kansas City. We are so pumped.
