Martin, Brad



            2010 was Brad's Rookie Year at Bear Ridge, competing in the Ridge Runner Hornets.  One thing you will notice if you ever talk to him....he has a good time no matter what he's doing.  He must enjoy it to make the trek to Bradford from Connecticut every week....and I expect that he'll be bringing a trophy or two home with him this season!

WEEK 1 - KDD NAPA OF BRADFORD NIGHT
MAY 7, 2011


Win or lose, no one has more fun at the track than Brad!

This thing looks great on the track!

Really good start for Brad....4th Place Overall

Brad and team pose before the action gets underway

WEEK 2 - WELLS RIVER CHEVROLET
MAY 14, 2011

POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN


WEEK 3 - VALLEY FLOORS
MAY 21, 2011

3rd Place in the Car Show

Looks like bad things are about to happen!

The car may not be as pretty as it was but it was damn sure fast!
Brad continues to sit in the Top 5 in points


WEEK 4 - DAD'S 4 BY TOOL & SUPPLY
MAY 28, 2011

Martin's car had issues from the time it unloaded

Want to know why I like Brad?  Take a close look as he is pushed off the track after a dismal night.....
he continued to wave and give thumbs up to the folks in the crowd.  That's what racing should be about.


WEEK 5 - Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank
June 4, 2011

Martin ran a borrowed car in this one....but it had nothing for the big dogs

Whatever chance Brad might have had went away with this flat left front in the Feature

WEEK 6 - MILLER AUTO GROUP
JUNE 11, 2011

POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN

WEEK 7 - JIFFY MART OF BRADFORD
JUNE 18, 2011

Good to see that Brad had his car back together!

Just before this photo was taken, Martin had his Jetta up on two wheels and the entire
underside was visible....I missed that shot though.


WEEK 8 - WELLS RIVER SAVINGS BANK
JUNE 25, 2011

Hot laps before the show gets underway

Battling in the Feature

WEEK 9 - MILLER AUTO GROUP
JULY 2, 2011

Brad's crew is working hard to get his car as fast as it was early in the season

Another night that didn't end with the result they are after...this time in 7th.  They'll get it put back together
and moving forward soon!

WEEK 10 - DENNIS PRESTON BUILDER
JULY 9, 2011

Brad and his team came into this one full of confidence.....a broken throttle cable in the heat
cut a bit of that enthusiasm

Once again, Martin got caught up in someone else's mess and came away with a damaged race car

WEEK 11 - WELLS RIVER CHEVROLET
MID-SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS
JULY 16, 2011

Action from the heat race


More action from the heat race.  Brad didn't make it out for the Feature but I have no idea why

WEEK 12 - J&A LAWN CARE -
BOUDREAULT SEPTIC
JULY 23, 2011

Martin looked pretty good in the heat race

Action in the Feature with Andy Mooney

WEEK 13 - PERRY'S OIL SERVICE
JULY 30, 2011

Brad is pretty frustrated these days....this spin by Mike Stender didn't help

Brad helps his daughter in the bike race....I guarantee this was the highlight of his night!

Action from the Feature

WEEK 14 - JTB TOWING & RECOVERY -
INTERSTATE BATTERY SYSTEM OF NEW-MONT
AUGUST 6, 2011

Brad did not compete at this event

WEEK 15 - WALKER MOTOR SALES -
  JOHN POOR MEMORIAL
AUGUST 13, 2011

Not quite as attractive as the car that won Brad the 3rd place trophy in the car show....
but Martin painted his number on this and got it ready for action

 Brad seemed a lot more competitive in his new ride...the Jetta had some issues that
the team just couldn't diagnose

I hope that Martin can put something together in this "previously owned" ride and get
the kinks worked out quickly!

WEEK 16 - SWENSON'S INSURANCE CO.
AUGUST 20, 2011

I really like the new look of Brad's car!

Think Martin's having a good time during Kids Rides?!?  Me too!

Not sure what happened to the 7 car but all of a sudden he seemed to almost stop and
Brad hit him square in the ass.  Luckily no big damage to the 34 car!
