Moorseville, NC – Dylan Martin heads to Indianapolis. Dylan will be racing on the flat track of Lucas Oil Raceway (formerly known as IRP) in his Blackwater Integration/Empire Racing Group/Grumpy’s Inc Ford Mustang in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Sioux Chief PowerPEX® 200 presented by Jive. This will be Dylan’s second start in the ARCA series.  His first was at the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville in April.  The caution flags didn’t fly to his advantage in that race and tires proved to be a key.  Dylan is anxious to improve on his finishing spot in Friday’s race at LOR.  Dylan has been racing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Late Model Stock series at various tracks (Hickory Motor Speedway, Caraway Speedway, Greenville-Pickens Speedway) and has gained insight and experience with driving these heavier cars, unlike the Super Late Models he had been driving in Florida.  Dylan said, “I am excited to get back in the driver’s seat of the #48.  Our team has worked hard to get the car ready for Friday night’s race.  I have learned a lot these last few months and I hope I can show that on the racetrack Friday night and bring home a good finish for the team.”

There will be an ARCA driver autograph session on Friday at6:30pm at LOR.  Dylan is anxious to meet the fans, sign autographs and hand out his custom coloring books to the kids.  While driving is a priority for Dylan, so are his fans.  Dylan appreciates their support and knows that without them, the sport of racing wouldn’t exist.  So come out to LOR, meet Dylan and support ARCA racing.

As this week of racing starts on Wednesday with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series hitting the dirt at Eldora Speedway where Empire Racing Group/Grumpy’s Inc fields 2 trucks, #82 driven by one of ERG’s owners, Sean Corr and in partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports the #43 truck will be piloted by Korbin Forrister, Dylan Martin finds himself crewing at a track he once raced at as a youngster in his USAC Quarter Midget.

In the past we would have to set our VCRs to capture our favorite race when we couldn’t attend them, now we just program our DVRs from our smartphones anywhere. While things have certainly changed around us over the years, other things have remained constant. Dylan may not be racing his USAC quarter midget in the parking lot of IMS in Indianapolis, instead he will be racing in the ERG’s Ford Mustang in the ARCA race at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. Program your DVRs to capture the ARCA race Friday night on Fox Sports 1 at 9pmand don’t miss Dylan’s second ARCA race of the season.
