Saint Croix Falls, WI (8/15/2018) – Bikeman Performance driver Zach Martin scored another top-five finish during the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League Pro Stock SXS race at Michigan’s Bark River International Raceway. Martin is driving a Yamaha YXZ 1000R with full support from the Bikeman team.

Martin had a throttle issue in qualifying for Saturday’s race and ran as high 10th in the race before a tire issue slowed his run. On Sunday, Martin fought wet track conditions and finished fifth.

“We started 21st on Saturday, and made it up to 10th before we had a tire issue,” said Martin. “On Sunday, we had everything dialed in and picked up three-and-a-half seconds in qualifying. The track didn’t really come in for us, but we made it up to fifth.”

Martin was running a new data logging system from AiM Sports Data during the weekend. It was a key component of his success because he easily found that his throttle was only going to 84% on Saturday and allowed the team to make a quick and easy repair on an extraordinarily hard issue to find.

“AiM Sports Data came over and we talked data,” said Martin. “They helped me out with a new data logger. It was a great thing because we found our throttle issue while just scrolling through the data. We never would have found the issue if it wasn’t for them.”

Martin is also pleased with the support he’s receiving from Bikeman Performance. Having full trackside support allows him to do what he does best: drive.

“Bikeman gives us the total package,” said Martin. “It nice to have a team that offers us full support. That’s key to our success in racing.”

Martin heads next to Crandon International Raceway in Wisconsin. The final Midwest Short Course League race precedes the special event Crandon World Cup, an award that Martin is eying.

“We’re going to use Saturday as a test day for Sunday,” said Martin. “We’re going to come out swinging on Sunday. We’re going to take home that World Cup.”

Martin will finish out the short course season at Crandon August 31-September 2 at Crandon International Raceway.
