After last year’s performance, there’s no doubt that Martell is one of 2017’s top title threats. He won in only his second start with DirtFish Motorsports and fifth overall to kick off last year, and with championship eligibility on the line, posted a perfect sweep of the Seattle event to ensure he’d still be in the hunt in Los Angeles. He ended up a strong fourth place in 2016’s final points, and considering that drivers usually improve in their second full season, he’s trending upward.
