Metairie, LA- August 27, 2013
- Following the Jefferson Parish Chamber of Commerce Grand Prix Event at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, LA. It is with great pleasure that Hal Martin announces his partnership with ORACLE Lighting beginning with 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".
Hal Martin on ORACLE Lighting and SEMA Show:
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 on the track as well as 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 the No.44 ORACLE Lighting Toyota Racing 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."
Justin Hartenstein of ORACLE Lighting on Partnership with Hal Martin:
"The entire team at 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 car 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 NASCAR driver as he is on the kart track he is going to continue to excel in this sport.
Return to Kansas: Big Opportunity, Bigger Expectations:
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 the car and the track lay out 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 25th position. "I'm really looking forward to returning to where my NASCAR Nationwide Series career all began." Martin stated. "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.”
Be sure to tune into the Kansas Lottery 300
which will take place on Saturday, October 5th at 3:30pm. The race will be broadcasted on ESPN2 and heard on the radio via MRN.
