Hammer Down Again | Martin Wins at East Bay

Martin Takes Feature at East Bay Raceway in Florida

The East Bay Sprints were able to run their first event of the season, losing their scheduled start on March 5 to weather. The lidlifter was not without drama as unofficial winner Danny Martin Jr. found his car protested by Greg Leonard. Post-race inspection found Martin’s winning ride to be within the rules and the victory stood. Martin grabbed the lead on the fourth lap. Jimmy Ballew led the first two, then drifted off the track with a broken oil pump. It gave the lead to Billy Boyd Jr. who kept it until Martin swept by. Boyd had to deal with a hard-charging Greg Leonard and lost second only to gain it back. Boyd crossed the finish in second with Leonard, Kurt Taylor and Johnny Gilbertson finishing out the top five. Ballew and Boyd took heat wins.
