Martin leads every lap to take Rivalz Elite win Tuesday night; Green flag altercation costs pole-sitters

 

January 29, 2019, BURLINGTON, ON –Jamie Martin darted past the front row at the drop of the green flag in the Rivalz Elite A-Main at Lanier National Speedway last night. The Aremold, Missouri, driver never relinquished that lead in the 30 lap winged 360 dirt sprint car race.

Polesitters Kody Hartlaub and Troy Wagaman jr. from Pennsylvania made contact coming to the initial green, and the opportunity was all Martin needed to get out front.

The event was the second race in the Rivalz Elite league, and only three cautions slowed the pace. Martin made it clear from the start if anyone was going to beat him they would have to use the bottom groove.

“I was pretty much committed to the fence,” said Martin. “I feel most comfortable up there banging along the fence. I’m not really comfortable sliding across the middle or running the bottom.”

Hartlaub provided pressure throughout the feature, and Ryan Beagle showed the top wasn’t the only place to make speed. Vittoria, Ontario’s, Beagle mounted several challenges for a podium finish, but in the end he had to settle for fourth.

“I heard someone talking that the 84 (Beagle) was driving right through the middle on restarts,” said Martin. “It kinda gave me information on what was going on behind me. I think the competition is getting stiffer. I actually got to lapped traffic, and I was smiling ear to ear. It’s actually fun when you start to get to lapped traffic.”

One of the unique characteristics of iRacing is racers’ ability to communicate while they race. Drivers can talk among their own teams to share information, and even though Martin knew the middle groove had potential he chose to stay up top.

“I had a little bit of set up help from Troy Wagaman,” said Martin. “I cut quite a few laps at this place to get comfortable.  It seemed like the track got really racy.”

Hartlaub chalked up his disappointment in finishing second to the mishap coming to green.

“I unfortunately got together there at the start with Troy (Wagaman) on lap one,” said Hartlaub. “It sucks to be disappointed with a second, but it’s good for points. It sucks that we got together on the initial start and hurt the car.”

Hartlaub held off a late charge by Wagaman who had rebounded from falling outside of the top five in the lap one melee to round out the podium.

Passing was plentiful both in the A main and in two ‘last chance’ events – the B Main and the C Main. Nine cars transferred from the B Main to the A Main starting grid, and traffic was chaotic for those battling to make the show.

The series opens February with a visit to Volusia Speedway Park next Tuesday at 9 pm. iRacers wanting to qualify for the Rivalz Elite event need only to race in the Rivalz Gauntlet qualifier at 9 pm in iRacing’s Hosted Sessions.

Martin joins Hartlaub with a qualified spot in the first Rivalz All-star race to be held in May, and one spot will be awarded each race to the highest finishing driver who hasn’t already qualified.

Featured below are full results from Tuesday’s event followed by the Rivalz Elite Roster for the February 5th Volusia event.
