USCS Stars Continue to Dominate Florida
Tampa Bay, FL - October 11, 2003 - 17 year-old prodigy, Danny "Hammer" Martin, Jr. www.HammerMartin.com from Sarasota, Florida, won his tenth feature of 2003.

The student became the teacher as Martin started on the sixth row and was one-half lap down to his teacher and friend Kenny Adams in the #4. Martin passed one of the Goodson Farms' entries the #21 with Gilbertson at the wheel. Gilbertson was one of many who tasted Martin's malodorous methanol moistened mud. Martin then went to work on Adams, turned a dozen consistent laps, passing everyone ahead of him and lapping about half of the field in the 25 lapper.
After passing ten cars, Martin in the #00 Martin Structures / Milk Movers, Inc. / www.eFloridaTrafficSchool.com Sprint car began to pressure Adams. For the second time in their last two meetings at East Bay, Martin hammered Adams into submission. Martin put the whip to Adams between turns three and four, taking the lead on lap 18. Adams, with 23 Feature wins in 2003, finished second in the Goodson Farms / Putnam County Speedway 360 Sprint car. Adams led 18 of the 25 lap feature, looping the car in turn three and amazingly driving across the infield, dodging photographers including national media, going airborne across the berm inside of turn 4 and holding off Goodson Farms' team mate Gilbertson, who finished third.
