MARTINOS RECEIVE HONOR FROM CITY OF YOUNGSTOWN

​This past Wednesday evening, Top Dragster competitors Tom and Ryan Martino (Martino Motorsports) were present at Youngstown City Hall for the unveiling of the newest addition to the city of Youngstown’s famed streets, a Welcome to Youngstown sign dedicated in their names.

“Having the sign erected feels like having a star put down on Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles, California.  Our city has a deep-rooted tradition of producing championship athletes and sports teams, many of which helped put our City in the world-wide spotlight on numerous occasions.  We’ve been a part of this formula since the 1970s.  It’s great to be recognized for our accomplishments with the Welcome to Youngstown sign,” said Ryan Martino.
