Schaffer Out-Battles Martin For Back-To-Back Wins


The Callaway Investments Sportsman Series ran their second race of the season last night at the Irwindale Speedway for 75 laps. Bill Martin picked up the pole with a new track record, before dropping back with a 6-car invert. Joe Schaffer and Tyler Price each led early before Bill Martin joined the group as the three cars broke away out front while battling. Late in the race it ended up being Schaffer and Martin fighting it out side-by-side for the win, and Schaffer would prevail to make it back-to-back victories for this 23rd career SARA win.

Pole Award – Bill Martin – New Track Record 19.616 seconds
