Following the Jefferson Parish Chamber of Commerce Event at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, LA, it is with great pleasure that Hal Martin announces his partnership with ORACLE Lighting for the Kansas Lottery 300 race in Kansas City, KS on October 5th 2013. "I am excited to be able to formally announce my partnership with ORACLE Lighting" Martin stated. "To represent a thriving business with such a unique and fun product line is a very thrilling opportunity, and I'm looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 44 ORACLE Lighting Toyota Camry."
"ORACLE Lighting will be sponsoring my No.44 TriStar Motorsports Toyota Camry at Kansas Speedway on October 5th" Martin stated. "Having a local, Louisiana based company coming on board for this race is exciting for me because I get to showcase industry and ingenuity from my region. ORACLE Lighting has received impressive accolades from across the country and their products have been used in amazing ways in different applications. I'm honored to be able to represent them both at the track in Kansas and at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV in November."
Following the Kansas Lottery 300 race on October 5, 2013, Martin will travel to Las Vegas, NV to represent ORACLE Lighting at the SEMA Show. "I've never been to the SEMA Show" Martin acknowledged "but I'm excited to have our No.44 ORACLE Lighting Toyota Camry there for everyone to see. I'm not sure people who usually attend the SEMA Show will be expecting to see a NASCAR racecar up close and on display. We are happy to have ours there on display!"
"The entire team here at ORACLE Lighting is very excited about our recent partnership with Hal Martin. We are especially enthusiastic to support a driver and a program that, like our own company, got its start here in Southeast Louisiana. We look forward to having Hal represent ORACLE Lighting in the #44 NASCAR Nationwide Series Toyota Camry later this year. We know Hal is a true competitor, our staff had the opportunity to go head-to-head with him on the kart track recently at NOLA Motorsports Park. If Hal is half as good of a NASCAR driver as he is on the kart track he is going to continue to excel in this sport. In addition to racing we will also have the #44 NASCAR Nationwide Series Toyota Camry on display in our booth at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada later this year." - Justin Hartenstein
Kansas Speedway will always hold significant meaning to Martin. It's here where Martin made his first career NASCAR Nationwide Series start in the October 2012 race. During this race, Martin was able to qualify in the 16th position after quickly learning the handling characteristics of both his Toyota Camry and the track layout itself. However, after a mechanical failure early during the race, Martin fell several laps down before being able to return to the field and complete the race event in the 25th position.
"I'm really looking forward to returning to where my NASCAR Nationwide Series career began" Martin stated. "It's hard to believe that all this started a year ago. I feel like I've grown so much as a driver and a competitor. I'm ready to go back to Kansas and take on this high-speed track again."
