Dylan Makes Speedway Illustrated

Speedway Ill Jan2015-2Dylan Martin, not Dylan Smith makes the January 2015 issue of the Dick Berggren’s Speedway Illustrated Magazine. It is a great photo and article about his Pro Truck race at Desoto Speedway. J.A. Ackley who wrote the article said that the February issue will have a correction in it with Dylan’s correct last name. But we all know when we see that 7 on a black truck that it is no other than the Dylan Martin out of Lakeland, Florida.

A huge thank you to J.A. Ackley and Speedway Illustrated for following Dylan’s journey.

“Giving, the Greatest Gift of All”

20141217_140344It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving. - Mother Teresa

There are many quotes by numerous people over the years about giving. They all talk about the gift in giving, helping is receiving and the greatest gift of all is time. This is what Dylan gets every time he walks through the front doors at the Shriners Hospital. He always has unique things to give the kids. Everything from coloring books, racing stickers to candy. But what he receives is far greater than anything he has ever given. The smile and immense gratitude shown in each little face is the reward he gets. The parents, nurses and doctors that continually thank him for taking the time to visit. Everyone is always so thankful but Dylan is the one that is thankful. He leaves those kids every time with a greater appreciation for the opportunities he has been given in life.

“I always have a blast and it is great to spend time to get to know the kids and to tell them about myself too,” Dylan Martin stated.

Missing Half the Body, Dylan Still Pulls Off a 3rd Place Finish

JJP_3151.psd c

The air was cold but there was heat rolling off the track surface as Dylan drove the Z car onto Auburndale Speedway for the 100 lap Sportsman race. He was behind the wheel of Kevin Ingram’s famous Z Car. Dylan proved he was serious about putting this car in victory lane by qualifying on the pole. With the drivers all pulling numbers where they would start for the race, Dylan would be starting 4th in the Fellows Trucking Group Curing Cancer Charity Challenge Cast Off Fishing Tournament Sportsman.

As the green flag dropped on the field, Dylan was up on the wheel. He was determined to get this car to the front. On lap 5, the #69 spun the leader out and both were sent to the rear. This put Dylan in 2nd on the restart. A couple laps later the #56 was able to get around Dylan to take 2nd. A lap later the #91 worked his way around Dylan to put him in 4th. The entire field ran numerous laps in single file until lap 32 when the caution flag dropped for Dylan. He got spun in the turn and had to go to the pits due to extreme damage to the car. But it didn’t take long for the crew to rip off the rest of the right side of the body so Dylan could get back on the track.

Dylan would be in 10th now as the race restarted. There would be no holding the Z Car back now. Within 2 laps Dylan passed the #48 to take 9th spot. Just a couple laps later he took 8th spot from the #8 sportsman. By lap 50, Dylan had passed two more cars to be in 6th. The #69 car pulled into the infield which moved Dylan up to 5th. Still driving on a mission to get to the front, he was able to maneuver his car around the #199 on lap 53. The #29 fell prey to Dylan on lap 66 as he took over 3rd. The field strung out in single file again did not see another caution flag until lap 81 when the #29 spun Dylan out.

Dylan going back to the rear again, found himself in 6th. Before the field could get in a lap, the #199 and #8 spun out in turn 1 &2. Dylan would be restarting in 5th. You know the saying that cautions breed cautions, well that is very true. Because on the next restart, the #29 and #77 would get into each other in turn 1 & 2 for the last caution of the night. Dylan in the Fellows Trucking Group Curing Cancer Charity Challenge Cast Off Fishing Tournament Sportsman restarts in 5th.

With only 10 laps to go, Dylan pushed himself back into the seat, gripped the wheel tight and took a deep breath. When that final green flag dropped, Dylan was determined to get the Z Car back to the front. The next lap, Dylan takes 4th place from the #8. He then ran the #199 back down and passes him to take 3rd. With only a few laps left he tries to get around the #77 but needed a few more laps to make it happen. So after being wrecked out then spun out and missing the entire right side of the car, Dylan finishes in a very hard earned 3rd place.

Dylan looks a bit frustrated in tech because he knew he had the car to beat but he smiles knowing that regardless of his finish he knows this was all for Jayden, Emily and Logan. Jayden finds Dylan after the race and gives him a high five. He is all smiles, his buddy Dylan drove a great race. Kevin, the owner and crew chief is all smiles too. Even though half the body was missing, the car and the driver had made a statement. Thanks to Kevin Ingram for not only building a rocket but giving Dylan the chance to pilot it.

In remembering that this entire weekend is to raise money for three special kids facing and struggling with severe illnesses, Dylan smiles. He himself has personally raised almost $3,500 for the kids this year. This cause has become very dear to Dylan. He does numerous fundraisers throughout the year to help gather money for the cause. In the past 3 years, Dylan has raised over $15,000 to help the kids of C.A.R.S. Racing For A Cause.

As the final race of 2014, Dylan wants to give a very special thank you to Donna Fellows and Fellows Trucking Group and their foundations, Curing Cancer Charity Cast Off Fishing Tournament, Curing Cancer Charity Challenge Golf Tournament and www.DavenportFightsBack.com . It is only with their help and support that Dylan and his team were as successful as they were. Thank you for believing in his journey.
