Ringgold, PA – Joe Martin’s 2012 season in FASTRAK competition has finally arrived. The Ringgold, Pennsylvania native will begin his 2012 campaign next weekend at the Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pennsylvania. The Sweeney Chevrolet-Buick-GMC Pace Performance FASTRAK Northeast Late Model Touring Series will sanction a two-day event at the southwest Pennsylvania venue; hosting some of the top FASTRAK late model teams in the Mid-Atlantic. Martin plans to spend his entire season on the road with the regional based series; hoping to be a contender for the 2012 title. Action this weekend at Roaring Knob will begin on Saturday, March 31st – with the $3,000-to-win finale being held on Sunday, April 1st!
“The “Super Nationals” will feature a $3,000 to-win main event plus a $1,200 to-win “Wheelman” bonus feature for the first 24 non-qualifiers. Another feature event paying $500 to-win will also be run for the next group of non-qualifiers, if at least 12 cars remain. The $1,200 to-win race will utilize the standard Touring payoff. This means at least 48 drivers will get to run a feature utilizing Touring payoffs! The same format will be used when the “Super Nationals II” takes place at Roaring Knob on October 19-20. “
Martin had a successful 2011 FASTRAK campaign; earning multiple wins, along with a sixth place finish in the final FASTRAK Northeast Late Model Touring Series standings. The Martin Farms/Allegheny Crane Rental/Fully Injected ’55’ pilot looks to have a successful season in 2012 – with year ending plans to make an appearance at the annual Fastrak Grand Nationals!
