Championship Showcase: Luke Martin17-year old Luke Martin showed nerves of steel as he closed the deal on the 2012 Mid-America Sand Drag Series Pro ATV class championship. Luke led from the start of the season with a win at the Season Opening Atoka event, and then survived an amazing round-by-round battle with Mollie Eades at the season finale to take home the title. Martin, a Clarksville, TX resident, rode his 86” rigid GT frame with a 4-Mil Cub to the winner’s circle running consistent 4.0 second ET’s. Luke’s dad, James, was right by his side the whole time as he also finished in the Top 5 of the point standings. Other crew members for Luke include Jason Weems and Darren Childress. He would also like to thank K&T Performance, Performance ATV & Cycle, and HRI Powersports. The most memorable moments of the season for Luke were winning Pro ATV at the Heartland Nationals (MASD Season Opener) and recording his first ever 3 second pass. Luke definitely will be a top contender in the ATV classes for many years to come.
