NASCAR Line
Mark Martin is one of the top five NASCAR drivers on the Nextel Cup circuit and perhaps one of the Salute To You Logo best stock car drivers ever. In addition to his superior driving ability, Mark is one of the finest individuals and sportsman you would ever want to meet. To many in the garage area, Mark is the complete race driver, one of the best who's ever lived. He can build the cars, fix them and drive them with style, class and a code of conduct that demands respect. He's easily the best NASCAR Nextel Cup Series racer never to have won a championship, and that's never been for lack of ability or effort.

Mark has built the reputation as the consummate pro - and deservedly so. This is the man who does his job to the best of his abilities and makes no excuses. Even with seasons that are sub-par for him, you never hear him complain or attempt to place blame.

Mark is one of the best in the business behind the wheel, and he works well with his crew chief Pat Tryson. As one of Roush Racing's two flagship teams, Mark has competitive hardware at his disposal and the resources to make the most of it.

Mark is so quiet and reserved it's hard to know what's going on inside, but you can expect the man known as the pro's pro to be back in the front of the pack. The competition in NASCAR Nextel Cup Series is tougher than ever, but Mark has a history of being up to the challenge.

Mark has never been the type to go out looking for attention from the media, but he is definitly going to get his share this season.

Before the end of the 2004 season Mark announced that 2005 would be his last shot at winning a NASCAR NEXTEL Cup championship. That's because after 22 full seasons, Mark will finally start easing into retirement at the end of the year.

Of course that's not to say he will be hanging up his helmet entirely. Although the plan isn't set in stone, Mark has hinted that he might run a partial schedule in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. That would give him the chance to race and keep his competitive juices flowing without requiring the time committment of NASCAR's top series. Now that his son, Matt, is advancing as a racer, Mark wants to make more time available ton help guide his career.

Don't count on 2005 to be a year-long goodbye cruise, however. Mark is committed to putting everything he has toward winning the championship. And team owner Jack Roush has publicly stated that his biggest goal remaining is to get Mark a championship. Although the Arkansas native is one of the older drivers on the circuit at 46, he maintains a rigorous physical regimen and is more capable of putting together a top caliber season. Last year he won once, added nine more top fives and finished just 107 points behind Kurt Busch in the final standings. Obviously, not too much in the way of improvement over last season's results will be required to put him over the top.
