Met Mark Martin today

It was the grand opening of his new Ford dealership.

I got him to autograph the dash out of my 84 Anniversary edition Mustang.

The place was packed, people took the whole week off work and drove 1000+ miles for this.

It was a blast. Saw his first, IROC, and cup cars on display.

Heres a pic of my dash.

Does he permanently lean to the left by any chance? I always wondered because...you know...right turns are bad.

Mark will retire this year no ifs ands or buts; Roush knows his wish to leave the Nextel Cup series and will not ask Mark for another year. However Mark has very good chances in the CTS series, he will be fulltime in that series and run a few NBS races too. He will run a partial schedule next year for Jack, but not fulltime as Mark is very much involved with his son and his racing carrer. Matt, Mark's son is 14 and running late models in Florida, I assume Mark will have him running the Whelen's and then get into CTS when he's 16-17 and then when he gets a bit older to NBS and maybe Nextel Cup. Mark has had a fantastic carrer, I hope he can pull through this year and get his first series championship.

One thing I dont like is Todd Kleuver taking over the #6

Mark is THE MAN!
I've followed him since he raced (cough cough) Chevys back in the late 70s.

Going to be sorry to see him go from Cup racing, but he should be awesome in the Craftsman Truck Series.
Frankly, those guys put on the best racing of any of the series anymore.
Nextel Cup is just a "show" these days.

On a side note...
Since his switch to AAA as a sponsor, I've now got 3 new t-shirts, and a killer jacket (have to get a pic one of these days).
My wife works for AAA. She's already been to the Vegas race, and gets to go to 3 or 4 more this year.
Now...how to get invited to go with her, even though it's "company" business.

Twofocused...
That's a totally sweet dash with the signature on it now.
VERY nice!
