Tommy Joe Martins season finale at Phoenix Raceway

Tommy Joe Martins season finale at Phoenix Raceway

With a top-10 finish and nine top-15 finishes in 32 races, Tommy Joe Martins NASCAR driver is ready to get after his 2020 season finale at Phoenix Raceway.

With the way the 2020 NASCAR season has played out — shut down for 10 weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no practice or qualifying — it would surely be a difficult season to revamp a race team. But, last December, when Tommy Joe Martins announced he was bringing Martins Motorsports back to the Xfinity Series, he was ready for the grind. And, over the past four months, Martins’ team has grown accustomed to the series.


From start to finish, Texas was probably Martins’ best race of the season, hardly ever racing outside the top 15. In fact, for the better part of the event, he was scored somewhere between 10th and 12th, which is leaps and bounds ahead of where the team was early in the year. It was hands down the best he’s ever run on an intermediate track, regardless of finish.

By running 10th, Martins earned his first career top-10 finish in 87 Xfinity starts. It’s the team’s first, too, although competing in far fewer races.

The NASCAR XFINITY  Series season may be coming to an end. However, the energy is at an all-time high in the Desert Diamond 200. So, tune in this Saturday, Nov. 7 at 5:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN and MRN.


Phoenix Raceway is a 1-mile, low-banked tri-oval race track located in Avondale, Arizona, near Phoenix. The motorsport track opened in 1964 and currently hosts two NASCAR race weekends annually. Also, Phoenix Raceway has hosted the CARTIndyCar SeriesUSAC and the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

With three race weekends throughout the year, Phoenix Raceway is the premier motorsports venue in the Southwest. Race fans can attend the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race weekend in March. And, see open-wheel racing with the IndyCar Phoenix Grand Prix in April.

As the sixth-largest city in America, Phoenix and the surrounding area offers all the food, lodging, and recreation/entertainment options one would expect from a town that thrives on tourism. Phoenix is world-famous for golf, tennis, shopping, and lots of sunshine – not to mention the most celebrated and storied racetrack in the West.


NASCAR driver Tommy Joe Martins had his best career-finish at Texas Motor Speedway. After the checkered flag was given to the field, his Number 44 AAN Chevy Camaro finished solidly in 10th place. Witness Tommy Joe Martins making history this Saturday, November 7 at Phoenix Raceway. Don’t miss all the action at “The Jewel of The Desert”!
