Tom Martino hasn’t raced since his Comp win at the 2017 Reading event, but he showed no signs of rust when he drove Ken Voight’s H/A Cobalt to a second straight victory in Comp. Martino, who builds engines for Voight and a number of other Comp racers, was the low qualifier in the 15-car field and got a bye run in the opening round. The five-time Pro Stock national event winner also topped Al Ackerman and Joe Carnasciale to move to the final. In the process, Martino lost .13-hundredths in Competition Index Control penalties, while final-round opponent Jay Schoenberger was down .14-hundredths in his I/A ’96 Cutlass. The index became irrelevant when Martino cut a competitive .030 light while Schoenberger encountered a problem and missed the Tree by more than two-tenths.
