Ha! I've told my DH for months that Keslowski would end up behind the wheel of the 5, I just didn't see Mark Martin in the picture-but I think it would be a good partnership, that way Brad could still be racing in the Nationwide series too!

Martin should retire. He is 49 years old and he does't have the reflexs that a young driver has.

Mark Martin should retire. He said he was going to, so he looks kind of rediculous now. I like the idea of he and Brad sharing the 5 next year. I have come to except Jimmie Johnson as Junior's teammate, so I guess that over time I will except Mark as well. I can't say that I am all that surprised that Casey is getting the boot.

Martin said he would retire in 05, thats crap your saying, he can still average a top 10 finish.

I'm not surprised about Case, but I would think HMS would want a full-time driver.

As smart as Rick Hendrick is...he may want Mark for other reasons....besides winning races, I mean. Marketability that Casey does not have, yet, for one.

You would think, but eveything is just rumor right now. I guess we shall wait and see what happens.

Experience more than makes up for whatever reflexes Mark may have lost. Don't kid yourself. Not every driver gets the chance to drive a Hendrick or Gibbs car every week. Mark has forgotten more about racing than most drivers will ever know.

If he has forgotten more about racing, then he should retire.
