This is Martin’s first official win of the 2022 season. He previously defeated Lizzy Musi in the final round at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida.

However, the win over Musi does not count, as it was a non-points race. Despite winning the non-points race, Martin did go home with $25,000.

The two-time Street Outlaws No Prep Kings champion had been in a funk before coming to New Hampshire. Six days ago, he was eliminated in the second round of the filming at Maple Grove Raceway.

Martin was defeated in the round by Brandon James. In that same round, Kelley was defeated by Tony McKinney.

Before the Pennsylvania race, Martin experienced an intake manifold backfire against Adam Jennings at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. This caused him to miss the rest of the race, as Justin Swanstrom, who drew Martin in the chip draw, advanced in that filming when Martin was not able to advance.

It took 18 days for Martin to get back his Gray Fireball Camaro to compete on the show once again. Right before Maple Grove, Martin got back the car after it had been in Georgia getting fixed.

After this filming, Martin advanced to his first official final round. Kelley appeared in two final rounds.

He defeated Jerry Bird in the Virginia final round.
