Trouble in Texas
Transmission Failure Sends Martin Home Early
Charlotte, NC- April 15, 2013 – Spritis were high as Martin traveled back to Texas to make his second career start in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Texas Motor Speedway. Qualifying 32nd, Martin had climbed to 25th when a transmission failure forced him and his No.44 American Custom Yachts Toyota Camry crew to bring the car to the garage ending his night. Martin finished the race in 38th position.
Hal Martin on Texas Motor Speedway
This was your second time back to Texas Motor Speedway as a NASCAR Nationwide Series driver. How was it?
Martin stated, “I was excited to get my car back to this track. This is the first track in my schedule that I had previously driven on as a NASCAR Nationwide series driver. Our car was really good. When our competitor’s speeds would drop off on long, green-flag runs, our car wouldn’t. We were moving up quickly when the transmission failed.”
You had some special guests this weekend, tell us about it.
Martin replied, “This weekend, we had our friends from Kool Boom, Ingersoll Rand and Centro, Inc. at the track with us. We had our guests visit the hauler and join the No. 44 American Custom Yachts Toyota Camry crew on the pit box for the race. We also ate the most delicious Philly Cheese Steaks courtesy of South Philly Cheese Steaks from Colorado.”
Martin will next compete in the ToyotaCare 250, which will take place in Richmond, VA at Richmond International Raceway on Friday April 26, 2013 at 8pm. Martin will be appearing at the Toyota Driver Center at RIR on Friday, April 26th from 1pm – 2pm.
