Martin started racing in 1985 in the
Street Stock Class at Roadrunner Speedway because he rodeoed and his
wife showed horses. Could not agree on horse training so went to
dirt track and decided to go racing as a couple, got engaged at Roswell
NM at the dirt track. His first win was in '86 in the Street Stock
Class at Roadrunner Speedway. Career highlights include racing
Street Stocks, Super Stock, Mini Sprints, 305 & 360 Sprints, Late
Models, Modified and now I-Stock.
The thrill of racing for Martin is when
he runs close to the front because I-Stock is very competitive.
His most exciting racing moment was racing with the USAC Sprints at
Terre Haute, IN. He's most proud of being able to be competitive
while still building chassis and engines out of his backyard shop.
Martin's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt.
Of racing, Martin says, "Racing involves
fellowship with fellow racers. Racers help each other when one is
having problems. Racing is something we have done as a family!".
