Mark ‘The Kid’ Martin Does It Again


BROOKLYN, Mich. – Hendrick Motorsports driver Mark Martin was simply running for points near the end of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup LifeLock 400 at Michigan International Speedway. At the very end, he was celebrating an unlikely victory.

After Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson and Roush Fenway Racing’s Greg Biffle – owners of the two strongest cars on the afternoon – dropped from the first and second positions, respectively, in the final two laps when their fuel tanks ran dry, Martin decided he had more than points in mind.

“If we’re this close, I’m gonna run hard,” Martin said in victory lane, adding he ran dry on fuel coming off Turn 4 for the final time.

Martin, who qualified 32nd, notched his 38th career victory – and his third this season. It was Martin’s fifth career win at Michigan.

  1. Hey kc! That’s 3 wins so far and he’s 8th in points.

  2. Is that just THE BEST or what!?!?!?!? Didn’t even watch most of the race, had the kids over before Lovely Daughter’s business trip & all, but watched the last 5 laps – which was obviously ENOUGH! Couldn’t get on here then, but WOOOO HOOOOO!!! My Favorite Old Guy Does It Again!

    Experience (age) and strategy overcome youth and exuberance!

    Might be time to buy a hat. I had one before he went Viagra, but it’s disappeared in the reconfigurations of the house in the past 6 years…


  3. He’s sure making it fun, aint he?
