Martin worked his way through traffic early in the Pro Super Stock final, and once he got the lead, he ran away for a decisive victory. With the win, Martin moved into a tie for the class points lead with Tucker Hibbert, who finished fifth in New York.
“I can’t even explain what this means,” says Martin. “The momentum for the team, for me as a racer, it’s going to make the second half of the season even more fun.”
Among other Polaris racers in Pro Super Stock, Bobby LePage (Team LaVallee) finished sixth and is currently ninth in points, while Brett Bender (Hentges Racing) finished 12th in his home state, and Matt Piche (Hulten Speed Sports) was 15th. Polaris racer TJ Gulla (Hentges Racing), who is seventh in points, was unable to complete his races in New York due to a shoulder injury suffered one week earlier at the Winter X Games.
In Pro Open racing, Martin finished second to remain second in class points, 24 behind the leader and 19 ahead of the third-place driver. Matt Piche (Hulten Speed Sports) finished eighth, Danny Poirier (Hulten Speed Sports) was ninth and Andrew Johnstad (Johnstad Racing) was 10th.
In Semi-Pro Super Stock, Polaris racer Mike Bauer (Judnick Motorsports) finished third and is currently third in points. Michaela Lemieux (Hulten Speed Sports) shared the victory in Adaptive Snocross.
In East Coast Snocross (ECS) racing held in conjunction with the ISOC National event, Danny Poirier (Hulten Speed Sports) finished second in Pro Super Stock.
In ISOC National Tour classes not run at the Eastern Nationals, Polaris racer Justin Tate is first in points in Pro-Am Plus 30 Super Stock, Jennifer Pare (JFP Racing) is second in Pro-Am Women Super Stock points, and in the Sport Super Stock standings, Polaris racers Trevor Leighton (Leighton Motorsports) and James Johnstad (Johnstad Racing) are 1-2, respectively.
The next stop for the ISOC National Series is the February 12 Motown National, which will be held at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan.
