Ryan Martin struggled when the points races began for the new Street Outlaws No Prep Kings filming. But it seems like the two-time Champion is back on top of the mountain.

For the second straight race, Martin won the event. He took home the $40,000 on Saturday night after he defeated Kye Kelley in the final round at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio.

He also won the event on his girlfriend Cherish Casey’s birthday.

Kelley won the first points race of the season when he defeated Jerry Bird in the all Team NOLA final round at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. Robin Roberts won the postponed Maple Grove Raceway race at New England Dragway over Bird.

The Oklahoma native also won the first race of the season at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida. Martin defeated Lizzy Musi in the final round. However, it was a non-points race for the teams.

With the win, Martin is the unofficial points leader. He now has 200 points, as the teams in the coming days head to Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
