HarHard luck driver Sammy Martz does a little tire massaging prior to heat race action.  Sam had the feature won last Saturday (8/12) until losing his power steering late in the race and then the lead on the last turn of the last lap.   On Wednesday night (8/16), Sam stole the show only to have the axle break on lap 69, giving up a $6000 win.  On this night (Sat, 8/19), Sam made a strong early charged toward the front in the feature before settling for a 6th place finish.  Look for Sam to visit victory lane soon at NES.

"Can't run coil overs on all 4 corners ...." 
(Nobody tell car builder Carl Bettinger, cause then he'd have to change his latest design... And if he had done that, then Glenn Hisko might not have gotten the big Sportsman feature win on 8/16, or the fine 4th place finish (8/19) either!  Gotta give Carl and Glenn a lot of credit for stepping away from the crowd and charting their own course.  While some speed shop components will bolt onto this one, there's some unique stuff going on underneath the #75.  Good to see some garage engineering still being used out there...  (Some of you may remember Carl driving his own orange and white #75 Modified at East Windsor during the 90's.)
