Martin Tops Boothill ASCS Showdown

GREENWOOD, La. — Rolling in with a score to settle Saturday night after suffering a massive crash last year, Jason Martin did just that at Boothill Speedway with the American Sprint Car Series, leading start to finish at the three-eighths-mile oval for his second win in as many races.

The fifth time the tour has visited Boothill Speedway, the trend of different winners continues, with Martin adding his name to the list.

“We had a great race car tonight. I love this kind of track where you have to search around, and it just keeps changing throughout the race. It was fun,” stated Jason. “I’m very proud of this team. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season, and now we just have to do what we need to do to keep it going.”

Martin’s sixth career victory with the American Sprint Car Series, the No. 36 had to fend off Seth Bergman at the start. Stalked by the No. 23 the first nine laps, Seth slipped to the show position on lap 10 as Landon Britt worked into the runner-up spot.

Working the hub of the high-banked oval, cautions offered the No. 10 a few shots at the lead, but each time it was Martin who held point. Varying his line as the track became more and more technical, the top three all raced to the white flag with the win hanging in the balance. Needing to make one last perfect lap, Martin was able to hit his marks to win by 0.588-seconds.

Britt held on for second over Bergman, with Howard Moore winning the battle for fourth over Cody Gardner. 

The American Sprint Car Series races again at Moberly Motorsports Park in Moberly, Mo., on Saturday, May 13.
