He sounded like he was choking up, I'm glad he won and I bet he's glad he raced.

Old Mark still knows how to bump and gouge with the best of them. And having that old puppy dog that peed on the carpet apology ready comes in real handy too. I was sure hoping Brad could hold on in the 88 and get his first win. If any of the Cup drivers had to win it though, I really am glad Mark was the one.

My Dario finished 6th and Carpentier 8th so I'm thrilled with that too, tomorrow should be good.

Those boys are figuring these cars out fast and coming on strong. They will do well this year as rookies.

I hope you're right, I'm not a Penske fan at all just because they dominated IRL for too damn long. But then again I don't want Hornish to do bad either. But I'd rather see the Ganassi boys do the best then, Carpentier.

It pays to be a nice guy. A number of other drivers would have been severly critized for what Martin did to win the race.

You are right about that,but i sure love that Mark Martin,always have and always will! It was just racing and i am proud that for once he gave it all he had to put himself in victory lane! In the past i thought he had really lost that #1 position due to being "too nice" now i can finally say "Way to go Mark" He raced like he really wanted that win and he deserved it! ;-)

It overshadowed his victory for him in a way, but no one would think for one minute it would be on purpose. Good Guy !

Exactly! Mark was just powering down that track and the slow race cars had better get out of the way! lol.In the past Mark would step off the gas,well he didn't this time! Dale Senior would have done the same dang thing! Yahoooeeee!

If he didn't work for The Wicked Stepwitch it would be easier to believe it wasn't on purpose. Now JR Motorsports first win looks like an outsider was needed to get the job done. Mark Martin's a pencil neck geek and shouldn't a be allowed to even sit in a Chevy.

There probably would not be a DEI if it weren't for Terresa. While Dale was racing she was building the company. Pretty savy lady. That is the reason the company is hers.
