Jim Martin

Tony Ruggiero, Mike Bahnmaeir, Michael Balch, Rocky Jackson, Sam White and Jim Martin will be among those pounding nitro with big feakin’ pistons, spitting flames and taking names as they seek to collect AHDRA plaques and winners’ stickers.

Hawaya Racing Pro Fuel pilot Martin and Vreeland’s Harley-Davidson 6.35 racer Joe Glaze will be among those seeking bonuses for winning two years (or more) in a row.

Crosby Blair

Glaze, J.J. Stringer, and Crosby Blair prefer to light their fires with gasoline and will be joining many, many other racers doing the same.
