HAYWARD WINS NO-PREP RACE AT MARTIN

Cal Hayward does it again! He won the No-Prep Triple Crown presented by Lane Automotive race at Martin Speedway on July 26. This mid-week event is a unique street-style grudge race where no times are shown, and only a win light shows the car that gets to move on. Plus, no track prep and instant leave on green makes it a lot of fun to watch.
