Martin, Jeffrey

                Jeffrey looks like he may be a force to reckon with amongst the Street Stocks in 2011 in his Escort GT.  He is just plain fast....and when he gets the handling down so all of the power is being used to propel him where he wants to go, he'll be moving forward and collecting trophies!

EVENT 1 - MERCHANTS BANK 150
MAY 1, 2011

Martin didn't compete in the weekly events at Thunder Road last season, although he did
take part in the M&M Enduro

Jeffrey was able to avoid this wreck and keep moving froward in the Reserve Feature

Straight up the middle

Martin grabbed the Checkers in the Reserve Feature but managed only a 25th Place finish in the Feature....
look for improvement as the season goes on!

EVENT 2 - MEKKELSEN RV MEMORIAL DAY CLASSIC
MAY 29, 2011


Jeffrey looked strong in his heat race

Three wide into Turn Three is not recommended

Martin finished outside the top ten....but he's too fast to not rebound quickly


EVENT 3 - FERGUSON WATERWORKS
JUNE 16, 2011

Another car with mechanical issues that I can't name...

EVENT 4 - HERITAGE EQUIPMENT
JUNE 19, 2011

Battling Ken Christman, the eventual winner in the Feature

Broke.....and a 27th place finish

EVENT 5 - GOVERNOR'S CUP
JUNE 26, 2011

It proved to be another tough week for Martin

Martin goes by a spinning Keith Lord in the Reserve Feature....he didn't make it into the big show

EVENT 6 - FAIRPOINT COMMUNICATIONS
JUNE 30, 2011

I'm not mechanically inclined but I can tell you that Martin's car was sideways most of the way around the track....
finally ending Jen Getty's good run in the heat race


EVENT 7 - PEPSI HOLIDAY EVENT
JULY 4, 2011

I bet Jeffrey would be the first to tell you that the last few weeks have been pretty tough for him -
this Checkered Flag in his heat race was a sign that things may be turning around.

Congratulations to CreativeOutbursts.com driver Jeffrey Martin for his first career Street Stock
Feature Event win!!

EVENT 8 - CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS
JULY 7, 2011

After his win at the last event, Martin had a really rough night.  Here, he is taking the Green Flag at the start
of the Reserve Feature.  He made it into the Main Event

Jeffrey had serious car troubles in the Feature before being awarded a 28th place finish

EVENT 9 - TIMES ARGUS MID-SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS
JULY 14, 2011

Martin had a great battle with Ken Christman in the Heat Race...they would see each other later as well

Jeffrey's team and friends go crazy in the background as he crosses under the Checkered Flag
and becomes the first repeat Feature Event winner in the Street Stocks this season

Martin returns the Checkers to Victory Lane

JULY 21, 2011

Heat race action

On the way to a 17th place finish

Jeffrey put together a good heat race and qualified straight to the Feature

Martin was lucky enough to avoid this spin

Collecting another trophy....this one for 2nd place

EVENT 13 - M&M BEVERAGE ENDURO &
STREET STOCK SPECIAL
AUGUST 7, 2011

Qualifying


Good battle with Amanda Habel on the way to a 6th place finish

EVENT 14 - TRIPLE 50'S SPECIAL EVENT
AUGUST 11, 2011

I know what you're thinking - and no I don't have this photo of George Sanders' Junkyard Warrior on
the wrong page as I put it here on Jeffrey Martin's Street Stock page.  It seems that last week the Top Ten
in points, which Martin was, had their engines torn down in Tech.  Somehow, the valves on Martin's engine
got bent.....and left him without a car.  That just sucks!  So his good friend George offered his Escort...and
they all went to work to convert it.  Wasn't competitive but it makes for a good story.

 Martin battles with Paul Grant in the "Non Qualified Feature"

EVENT 15 - VERMONT ACE HARDWARE STORES
AUGUST 18, 2011

Martin had his own car this week....but it didn't help.  Here he is leaving the track early during his
heat race

No luck in the Reserve Feature either

EVENT 16 - AUBUCHON HARDWARE - BENJAMIN MOORE PAINT
AUGUST 26, 2011

Another example of feast or famine....Martin seems to do great or terrible...never any in-between.
Here's a qualifying win

Followed by mechanical issues and a 25th place finish in the Feature

EVENT 17 - BOND AUTO LABOR DAY CLASSIC
SEPTEMBER 3-4, 2011

Martin was another driver who struggled....he qualified 27th fastest and couldn't
make it out of the 'B' Feature

SEASON RECAP

*Jeffrey finished tied for 18th in the Street Stock Division*
