Martin wins second NPK race of the 2019 season

Lizzy Musi’s three race Street Outlaws No Prep Kings Season 3 win streak has come to an end. She was eliminated in the first-round.
With her being eliminated, it opened the door for a new winner. Ryan Martin won the event at Route 66 Raceway in Elwood, Illinois on Saturday night.
Larry “Axman” Roach — his opponent in the final round — had problems during the burnout. Racemaster Chuck Seitsinger gave Roach a minute to get the car ready; however, it was broke.
Martin made the solo pass for the win. He received the $40,000 prize for the win.
This is Martin’s second win of the season. He won the season-opener that was postponed from the season-opener at Maryland International Raceway in Budds Creek, Maryland due to rain.
Martin had to complete the Maryland race during Memorial Day weekend at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire on Friday night.
So far this season, only Martin and Musi have wins through five events so far.
Besides winning in New Hampshire, Musi also won at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in Madison, Illinois in June. Then, she won at Firebird Raceway in Eagle, Idaho in July.
Musi was eliminated by Eric Bain in the first-round at Route 66 Raceway.
With the Route 66 Raceway event in the books, there is only four races left on the season. On Sept. 6-7, the taping will travel to Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. Late that month, the taping will continue at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio on Sept. 20-21.
There will be two tapings in October with a show taping at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida on Oct. 11-12. The season will conclude at the Texas Motorplex on Oct. 25-26.
