Mark Martin Wins in Phoenix
What a great win for 50 year old Mark Martin, one of the best, and most popular drivers in NASCAR history. For those of you who don't know of Mark Martin, or anything about him, he won 35 races with Roush racing, raced part-time over the past several years with DEI (Earnhardt Racing), and is now full-time with Hendrick racing in their famous #5 car. Rick Hendrick's first team and number in NASCAR was 5, and Geoff Bodine won the first race in that car for Hendrick. Rick Hendrick wanted to put a real racer, someone with a chance to win not just one, but many races in the 5 car, and it appears he has him with Mark Martin.
