Saturday - October 7, 2006 (Independence, IA): Martin laps the entire field except for Stolte, who finished 2nd in the 2006 Indee Open OUTLAW race!

Curt Martin put on a clinic in the 20-lap run-what-you-brung Indee OUTLAW late model feature. With lexan side panel and circa 1991 wedge nose in place, Martin quickly worked his way into the lead after just one lap after starting in the fourth position. He then pulled away from the field, entering lapped traffic on the seventh circuit.

In a race that went caution-free, Martin lapped all but the second place finisher, Dale Stolte. Eric Gustaf was credited with third.

Saturday - July 8, 2006 (Independence, IA): Martin storms from the back to the front for exciting win!

Luke Goedert was the early leader in the 25-lap I.M.C.A. late model feature. Goedert held the point as Tysus Pattee worked the bottom groove from his third row start. Pattee pulled even with the race leader and took command on lap five, just prior to a pair of caution periods.

When the race resumed, Pattee held the point with Curt Martin, who started 11th, in tow. Martin drove under Pattee on lap eight and drove away from the field to score the victory, his second straight win. Greg Hunter and Dean Wagner completed the top three.

Saturday - July 1, 2006 (Independence, IA): Early Fireworks from Martin!

Although the pyrotechnics weren’t scheduled until the July 3 Deery Brothers Summer Series special, race fans were provided with a different form of fireworks during mid-season championships. I.M.C.A. late model driver Curt Martin provided much of the holiday excitement as he took a different route to the winner’s circle.

At the start of the 25-lapper, Tysus Pattee held the advantage. Pattee moved to the front from his third row start and quickly pulled out to an early lead. Jerry Dedrick, Greg Kastli and Martin battled behind him for second.

A handful of cautions slowed the event through the first nine laps with Pattee and Kastli holding their positions at the front of the pack. Contact between Kastli and Martin on the ninth lap sent Martin to the rear of the field for the ensuing restart with 16 laps remaining.

When the race resumed, Pattee continued to impress the crowd as he held off the veteran Kastli. The race was slowed again on lap 15 with the lead pair unchanged. By that time, Martin worked his way into sixth.

One final caution was displayed on lap 18 by which time Kastli worked around Pattee for the lead and Martin settled into third. Pattee regained control of the event driving below Kastli with only five laps remaining. Martin then entered a side-by-side battle with Kastli for second, taking over that position and setting his sights on Pattee.

Pattee remained glued to the bottom of the track, leaving Martin no room to pass until the final lap when Martin was able to sneak around Pattee and drive to the impressive come-from-behind victory. Pattee crossed the line second and Tyler Bruening, who was also involved in an early caution, sped back through the field to collect third place honors. Kastli crossed the line in fourth.
