It’s been a tough season around the sport as more sheet metal and fiberglass than you can shake a stick at has been twisted and mangled in some pretty spectacular crashes. Out of that however, have come some pretty miraculous rebuilds that have kept chassis shops burning the midnight oil to turn around race cars that you’d never know had been crashed just weeks prior.
Outlaw 10.5 racer Michael Martin’s crash at the Yellowbullet Nationals was one of the craziest sequences we have ever seen, but Martin was determined not to let the incident end his season, and a mad thrash to make repairs ensued.
With a busted up race car after the crash at Cecil County, Martin was immediately making light of the situation just trying to figure out a way to get back on track. Most thought that it would be early next season before his return as it was said that a new car would be constructed, although behind the scenes work had already begun on trying to repair his famed orange and white 69′ Camaro.
With the thrash completed and a race car that is definitely showing its battle scars, Martin returned to action this past weekend at Virginia Motorsports Park for some test passes. On one of the first laps down the track, Martin carried the front end past the 330 foot mark riding the bars in true “Juice Man” style. With two of the biggest races on the horizon it appears that he is ready to take aim at the winners circle to bring his season full circle.
