‘Tri-Star Pittsburgher’ action will kick-off Friday evening, September 14th, with all preliminary action for the crate engine powered FASTRAK/Pro Late Models. Preliminary action will consist of everything on the weekend format excluding feature racing. Time trials, heat races, and consolation B-mains will all be contested on Friday night. Martin, and the entire JM2 Motorsports operation, will then return to ‘Dirt’s Monster Half-Mile’ on Saturday evening, September 15th, for the ‘Tri-Star Pittsburgher’ finale. The FASTRAK/Pro Late Model feature will be 30 laps in distance; paying over $2,000 to the winner. Other headlining divisions on the ‘Tri-Star Pittsburgher’ weekend program include the UFo Super Late Model Super Series, BRP Modified Tour, and the ‘410’ sprint cars.
Joe Martin has earned four wins already in 2012 as he looks to secure win #5 this weekend. The team’s lone Pittsburgh victory came back on Saturday, August 11th. The Wylie RaceCars/Ingram powered ’55’ also has wins this season at Dog Hollow Speedway and Sharon Speedway. The victory at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio took place during a FASTRAK Northeast Touring Series event; Martin traveled the series full-time during the first-half of the 2012 season.
