Hal Martin on Auto Club Speedway

This was your first time racing at Auto Club Speedway, what did you think of the track?
"I thought the track was fun after I got used to it. The seams in the track made navigating and choosing lines difficult because as soon as you drove over one, the car took on completely different handling characteristics" stated Martin. "It was a challenge, but I really enjoyed the difficulty in having to really focus on where the car was on the track at all times."

You participated in Toyota Motorsports Day tell us about your experience.

Martin replied, "Toyota holds an annual event for it's employees at their U.S. headquarters in Torrance, CA where they are able to meet Toyota drivers across multiple racing series to get autographs and to take pictures. We also had lunch in the Toyota USA Automobile Museum and were able to walk around and look at all of the Toyota vehicles. I was able to see everything from a Toyota Sienna mini-van to an Eagle MkIII GTP, it was an awesome tour and a privilege to meet some great Toyota employees."

You visited a service member in the TriStar Motorsports family at the California National Guard Armory in Azusa, how was that?

Martin recalled "Sargent Don Siebert gave a tour to my fiancee and I of his facility. During the tour, we saw different weapons as well as a variety of military vehicles. I've been to military museums, like the National World War II museum in New Orleans, before but it's different when you get to see equipment that is used today to defend our country. The experience really opened my eyes to the every day experiences of our service men and women. I had a great time."

Looking Forward:

Martin will next compete in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300, which will take place in Dallas Texas at Texas Motor Speedway on April 12th. In the meantime Martin plans on traveling to New Orleans, LA to spend time with family and to plan his wedding with his fiancee.
