It’s Evan In Battle Of The Martins

ELDON, Mo. — It’s hard enough to win in sprint car racing, but imagine your dad is Randy Martin and he’s chasing you.

That was the scene on Saturday night at Lake Ozark Speedway and in the end, Evan Martin held off the charge of the No. 14 to secure his second career victory with the Racinboys.com ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.

Leading start to finish, the Heidbreder Foundation No. 4 had to survive a trio of restarts on laps 10, 12 and 23.

Able to keep his father at bay, Evan was able to pull to a 0.405-second advantage after the final restart. Randy Martin held on for second over the hard-charging No. 3 of Ayrton Gennetten, who ran from eighth to third.

Miles Paulus and Austin Alumbaugh completed the top five.
