Jason Martin Tops ASCS Showdown At Boothill Speedway


Bryan Hulbert – GREENWOOD, La. (April 22, 2023) Rolling in with a score to settle Saturday night after suffering a massive crash in 2022, Jason Martin did just that at Boothill Speedway with the American Sprint Car Series, leading start to finish at the three-eighths-mile oval for his second win in as many races.


The fifth time the tour has visited Boothill Speedway, the trend of different winners continues, with Jason adding his name to the list.


“We had a great race car tonight. I love this kind of track where you have to search around, and it just keeps changing throughout the race. It was fun,” stated Jason. “I’m very proud of this team. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season, and now we just have to do what we need to do to keep it going.”


Martin’s sixth career victory with the American Sprint Car Series, the No. 36 had to fend off Seth Bergman at the start. Stalked by the No. 23 the first nine laps, Seth slipped to the show position on Lap 10 as Landon Britt worked into the runner-up spot.


Working the hub of the high-banked oval, cautions offered the No. 10 a few shots at the lead, but each time it was Martin who held point. Varying his line as the track became more and more technical, the top three all raced to the white flag with the win hanging in the balance. Needing to make one last perfect lap, Jason was able to hit his marks to win by 0.588-seconds.


Landon Britt held on for second over Seth Bergman, with Howard Moore winning the battle for fourth over Cody Gardner. Sixth went to Matt Covington, followed by Brandon Anderson. Louisiana’s Koty Adams crossed eighth, followed by Kyler Johnson. Involved in a caution on Lap 5, Michael Day rebounded to a top-ten finish.


Saturday’s field broke into three AR Dyno Specialty Heat Races, with wins going to Matt Covington, Cody Gardner, and Michael Day. The KSE Hard Charger was Howard Moore. All drivers in attendance advanced to the A-Feature. Landon Britt was the overall quick qualifier and established a new track record at 12.644-seconds.


The American Sprint Car Series races again at Moberly Motorsports Park in Moberly, Mo., on Saturday, May 13.
