Martin All Over Oberlin ASCS Rocky Mountain Debut
OBERLIN, Kan. (September 3, 2005) - Liberal, KS, racer Jason Martin made his way to victory lane in Saturday night's 25-lap feature as the American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region made a spirited debut at Oberlin Speedway.
Nebraska's Chad Humston gunned into the early lead and paced the opening six rounds before Martin worked lapped traffic to his advantage to take command aboard the Kriner-powered Dan's Body Shop/Simpson Race Products No. 36 Maxim.
Martin, Humston and Preston Peebles II diced for the point over the next ten rounds before a tangle with a lapped car brought an early end to Humston's night after 16 rounds. Two laps later, Peebles' victory hopes were dashed as well when he exited with mechanical woes.
Patrick Bourke made a late bid for the win, but there was no stopping Martin from claiming his second ASCS Rocky Mountain Region feature win of the season. Bourke settled for second, while C.J. Johnson charged from 18th to snare the show position.
Dennis Park crossed the stripe fourth, with Mike Peters rounding out the top five. Completing the top ten were Gary Taylor, current series point leader Eric Miller, 20th-starter J.D. Johnson, Jake Pierson and rookie shoe Josh Fellows.
Martin, Taylor, Peters, Humston and Bourke topped heat race action for the stout 35-car field, with Michael Woodruff and C.J. Johnson splitting victory honors in the twin 12-lap "B" Mains.
