Truck & Lightning
He must be a wild and crazy guy to haul his ’99 Lightning all the way from Gorchester, Ontario, Canada. Of course, it’s not that crazy for a Canuck to fly south for the spring to soak up some good luck. Steve Martin qualified in the fourth spot of the 18-truck field with an 0.021 reaction time. Once eliminations started rolling, SVT Steve honed in on his 10.54 dial-in, taking out Robert Cauhran, Joseph Matthews, Brian Owens, and Mike Motycka on his way to a final-round clash with former champ Bob Cochran. There Steve was on his game, getting a slight jump at the Tree and running a 10.61 to take his first NMRA victory.
