Another Chapter

Lakeland, FL - Another chapter is waiting to be written for Dylan Martin in his racing journey. Dylan starts the 2017 season with optimism that he will have many new challenges to face and find success in a new class this coming season. In an unexpected turn, the #7 Blackwater Integration Super Late Model has found a new home as Dylan has acquired a Open Wheel Modified in its place in the garage.

He has brought on a new challenge in a new class. Dylan is tearing the Open Wheel Modified down to its chassis and rebuilding it. How best to know what you have in a newly acquired car, but to tear it down and rebuild it yourself, bolt-by-bolt. Dylan is excited about the task he's taken on and is looking forward to seeing the progression of the car from the rails to the track. He hasn't driven in this class before but he is anxious to get behind the wheel and continue to improve his driving skills in yet another class.

Whats ahead for 2017

Lakeland, FL - What's ahead for Dylan Martin for the 2017 season? That is the question on many minds these days. Dylan raced in back-to-back races on January 7th and 8th at New Smyrna Speedway and Auburndale Speedway. His Super Late Model might have still had some dust on it that needed to be dusted off. He finished both races, but neither were finishing positions he had wanted. His car struggled at both tracks lacking in speed. Chad Pierce, crew chief, dug hard looking for those extra tenths that were needed, but the car fought them all weekend. Dylan did a heck of a job wheeling it to finish the races but both races brought their own challenges. Finishing the Red-Eye 100 at New Smyrna Speedway and driving to Auburndale Speedway at 1am and back at it with the crew at 8am to change the set-up of the car for the short track of Auburndale Speedway proved to be a challenge that the whole crew was up for and were successful at. Dylan's super was ready for the short practice session and qualifying for the Diamond 100 at Auburndale Speedway on their season opener. But throughout the race, the car just wouldn't come to Dylan. He fought a very loose car and maybe some damage from the earlier wreck at the Governor's Cup was haunting the car. Nonetheless, the crew did a great job getting the car ready for Dylan for both the Red-Eye 100 and the Diamond 100.

So what's ahead for Dylan for 2017......It's a question to remain unanswered at this point as Dylan is exploring his options for the 2017 season and wants to move ahead with purpose and intentions of success. There may be changes in the future for DMR. Just buckle up and stay on course with us to see where the road twists and turns in the future.

Dylan's Super Late Model will carry the CARS' Racin' For A Dream logo for the 2017 season. We are proud to be a part of this amazing cause. Dylan is honored to be able to support Kim Scheffler and the families that CARS will be helping this season.

Dylan is still collecting Soda Tabs for the children at the Shriners Hospital in Tampa. If you have soda tabs you want to drop off at the shop, please email us at Staci@DylanMartinRacing.com. Dylan will be visiting the patients at the hospital in just a few weeks and taking the Soda Tabs that have been collected. The staff at the hospital is always so thankful for the support. The monies raised from recycling the soda tabs goes directly into special programs or events for the patients at the hospital.

The children are always excited when Dylan comes to visit them and it puts a smile on the faces of the patients and the staff. Dylan missed visiting with them during his 2016 season and is excited to be able to be back to spend some time with the patients.

Merry Christmas

merry-christmas-2016It has been an eventful year for Dylan Martin. He began his season thinking he was running his Blackwater Integration Super Late Model in the Sunoco Series in Florida and instead he found himself running ARCA races at Fairgrounds Speedway in Tennessee; Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis and Chicagoland Speedway in Illinois. It wasn't the season Dylan thought it was going to be when February rolled around. Instead, at the age of 18 he moved to Mooresville, North Carolina alone and took a position with Empire Racing Group/Grumpys Inc (Grumpy & Sherry Cheek) in the race shop and signed as a driver with Richard Petty Driver Development Program. Dylan faced a new environment on his own. He graduated high school and moved to the mecca of racing in North Carolina. He was given an opportunity to expand his racing career and he took on the challenge with full force. Dylan learned to drive the heavier cars in the Late Model Stock class.
