Monday - May 29, 2006 (Independence, IA): Martin Scores his first Indee Open win of 2006!

In the late model division, former Indee Open Series champion Curt Martin piloted his way to victory in the 40-lap main event. Martin, who leads all drivers with seven career wins in the series, drew an inside second row starting position. He chased front row starters Rick Dralle and Dean Wagner at the drop of the green.

Martin edged past Wagner on the fourth circuit, then made his bid for the lead just two laps later. Shortly after the lead change, the race was slowed for caution on lap seven.

Following the restart, Jeremiah Hurst applied pressure to the race leader, but mechanical problems sidelined him on lap 12. As Martin entered lapped traffic on the 14th circuit, Tyler Bruening was working his way through the field.

Bruening, who was running fifth just prior to Hurst’s departure, settled into the runner-up spot as Martin entered the backmarkers. The race was slowed one final time on lap 16.
