Danny Martin Grabs Another USCS win at Penton Raceway

Twenty-two year-old Danny “the Hammer” Martin, Jr. from Sarasota, Florida drove his Martin Structures/CnB Mushroom Farms/Motorheads powered #00 Shaw car to his first O'Reilly United Sprint Car Series feature win of the season at Penton Raceway on Friday night. Martin won the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat, then drew the pole in the K&N Filters Pole Draw before leading every lap of the 30-lap O’Reilly USCS Southern Thunder event around the high-banked red clay oval.

Martin started in the pole position with 2005 O’Reilly USCS Asphalt Thunder Champion, Wayne Reutimann, Jr. from Zephyrhills, Florida outside him. The “Hammer” won the first drag race to turn one but had to re-do the whole thing when two cars tangled and the race had to be re-started. Martin repeated the feat on the re-start and led every lap while pulling away to a straight-away advantage during the middle of the race.

At the finish line the next car was 6-8 car lengths back of Martin hoping for the caution that didn’t come.
