Saint Croix Falls, WI (7/18/2018) – Bikeman Performance driver Zach Martin scored a second-place finish in the SXS Pro Stock class during the Lucas Oil Short Course League race at ERX Motor Park in Elk River, MN. Martin was driving a Yamaha YXZ 1000R in the doubleheader event.

Martin qualified fifth for Friday’s race. Despite early cautions, Martin held strong and was battling for the lead when a tire issue took him out of contention. Martin qualified third for Saturday’s race, and he again nearly took the top spot, but finished a close second.

“The car ran well and the Bikeman Tune is on point,” said Martin. “It made plenty of power all weekend. It felt good to get back on the podium. We got the suspension dialed in and the car ran flawlessly.”

Weather has been a difficult factor this season and both practice sessions were rained out during the weekend. Similar weather at the first event has forced Martin to use qualifying and race sessions for R&D on his brand new car. Despite the difficulties, he and his Bikeman team have weathered the storms, quite literally.

“It has been a lot of work to get the car dialed in,” said Martin. “We haven’t had one practice session due to rain so we’ve been doing our R&D in qualifying and the races. I think we have a handle on it now and we’re looking forward to Bark River.”

Martin will be back up front as the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League heads north to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the next race at Bark River International Raceway. That event is scheduled for August 10-12.
