This frees up a spot at Stewart/Hass to fill the seat in races Danica is not running. Ward Burton and Danica would be a Nascar dream team.

Didn't Mark Martin retire already? I think I would put someone else in the car before Mark "the kid" Martin. He's like almost dead, isn't he?

If Martin wasn't a dried up, over the hill has been he wouldn't even think once about drinking anything for POS Waltrip. I wouldn't let either one of them drive my grand baby's tricycle.

The annoucement said Martin would drive 25 races, POS would run 5 races (restrictor plate & Kentucky). But it said Martin would debut with POS Racing at Daytona in 2012 and POS would race the remaining restrictor plate races. How does POS get to 5 without 2 races at Daytona? It also said POS would get other drivers for the remaining 6 races. What a Joke!!!!!!!!

He can't win a restrictor plate race without Senior blocking the rest of the field.

3 races from now he will have officially retired from competitive sprint cup racing at least for the next two years.

Thus was first and foremost about keeping lurch in a restrictor plate ride. Rent to own will sponsor two cars at daytona, martin hates the plate races but he is not going to pass up on his share of the daytona purse.

Lurch talked butler into shifting money around so that even thought hay pull back funding he gets his plate races in.

That's why he won 3 more after he died.

This wasn't one of Mikey's best decisions. Put Martin in the Nationwide Series full time and let him run limited cup schedule to fill Danica's empty slots. SHR should field 2 Nationwide cars for driver development.

I'm not sure this would be a good move for MWR.
