Polaris snocross racer Ross Martin (Judnick Motorsports) won the Pro Super Stock final at the ISOC Eastern Nationals in Farmington, New York, on February 4, and moved into a tie for the class points lead at the mid-point of the season. Martin capped off his weekend with a second-place finish in the Pro Open race on February 5.
Martin worked his way through traffic early in the Friday night Pro Super Stock final, and once he got the lead, he ran away for a decisive victory. With the win, Martin moved into a tie for the class points lead with Tucker Hibbert, who finished fifth in New York.
“I can’t even explain what this means,” Martin told the ISOCracing.com staff after the win. “The momentum for the team, for me as a racer, it’s going to make the second half of the season even more fun.”
Among other Polaris racers in Pro Super Stock, Bobby LePage (Team LaVallee) finished sixth and is currently ninth in points, while Brett Bender (Hentges Racing) finished 12th in his home state, and Matt Piche (Hulten Speed Sports) was 15th.
Polaris racer TJ Gulla (Hentges Racing), who is seventh in points, was unable to complete his races in New York due to a shoulder injury suffered one week earlier at the Winter X Games.
In Pro Open racing on Saturday, February 5, Martin finished second to remain second in class points, 24 behind the leader and 19 ahead of the third-place driver. Matt Piche (Hulten Speed Sports) finished eighth, Danny Poirier (Hulten Speed Sports) was ninth and Andrew Johnstad (Johnstad Racing) was 10th.
