<quoted text>This is not the Mark Martin board, it is the open nascar forum. I own 2 house's in concord and i know what is said there. A lot of people no longer like Mark because of his lieing. I go to the truck stop's in concord and Kanapolis and these people are a serious bunch and they do not like Mark, but then they can not stomach Roush so that may be part of it, but they say he lies to much and cain't believe anything he say's. I really could care less what you think for you are nothing to me and your post's don't help ole Mark look to good with fan's like you, you don't do him justice. Will, maybe i well see you in nc sometime, i have 3 month's of chemo left here in va. where i have a house but when it's done i will be in nc a lot.So until then, have a good day.
Maybe we can get together for a beer during the fall race. I will be in the lot next to the gas station directly across from the start finish/line all day before the race. In case you didn't already know, Mark is leading the championship standings, and if my posts mean nothing to you, why do you continue to respond?

To go along with that, I have heard several people who live in the mobile home park near where we park bad mouth Earnhart Sr. about his ways, but I wouldn't say that alone makes him a bad person. Do I take it into consideration? Absolutely. You have to look at it in context of who is speaking, how much weight their voice holds, and does it fit with an established pattern of behavior. I can honestly say I've never seen Mark exhibit the type of behavior being spouted on this board, and therefore I have trouble believing any stories overheard in some random, unsubstantiated coffee house somewhere in the southern United States.
Well, missy boy (grandma) gets her information from truck stops as she posted earlier. Most of whom I am sure were 100% senior fans and now follow the 8 like a religion. There minds are likely one track minds and they probably say the things she is quoting. It's OK. They don't know any better.

The truck race was wrong on nascars part but lets look at the bigger picture, You are #1 in nextel points now so you should wake up and not forget who you are? The Best the Sport has to offer now and it really looks like this might just be your year so don't share the ride, drive the daylights out of the 01 and make this your year for Everyone to remember. Lets remember the Viagra, Keep it up, keep it going and you won't lay down now since you are on the top!

I go to a lot of the track's in the south east and i have home's in concord and in va. a half mile from the Richmond race track and my guy just bought a house in Hiram, Ga. so we will be closer to the Atlanta and florida track's, so let me know what one's you mean. I don't drink alcohol, but will have a coke with ya.He won't be in the standing's long so enjoy will you can.
Lowe's Motor Speedway. Coke will work, and I think he will be in the standings a while. If he shows up at the COT test at Bristol this week, look out. He will be running the 01 all year.

According to ESPN this afternoon, Mark Martin will not run the entire season this year (even though he leads the points standings).

I don't understand why people are complaining about Mark Martin racing whatever he wants to race. I would think that after running from 1989-2006 for the same team that he would have earned the right to try whatever the heck he wants. And for you guys talking about what a "rotten" deal that Joe Nemechek got, well heck he finished 32nd in points last year. Now with Mark in the 01 Joe is Ninth in points and Mark is the point leader. Sterling has been strong as well. Why? Because Mark Martin knows how to set a car up to be fast at the racetrack.(Especially the 1.5 mile superspeedways) He then passes that info over to Joe and Sterling and now they are fast as well. Its the same reason that roush has been so successful. All of roush's drivers, Kenseth, Biffle, K.buschnutts, Edwards all have learned this from Mark Martin. So realize that NOBODY has benefited more from Mark Martin being at Ginn than Front Row Joe. Mike Skinner said it best in his post-race interview after California, Mark Martin is the best driver of this generation besides Big E and I would have to agree with him.

MARK MARTIN IS A CLASS ACT WHETHER HE HAS WON A CHAMPIONSHIP OR DAYTONA OR NOT. HE HAS ALWAYS CONDUCTED HIMSELF AS A GENTLEMAN AND BEEN AN EXAMPLE FOR YOUNG DRIVERS TO FOLLOW. HE HAS MENTORED MORE YOUNG DRIVERS THAN ANYONE AND BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR RECOMMENDING SOME VERY GOOD DRIVERS TO JACK OVER THE YEARS. IF HE DECIDES TO RUN THE FULL SERIES THIS YEAR I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT. WHAT EVER HE DECIDES TO DO, I WISH HIM THE VERY BEST AND APPRECIATE THE ENJOYMENT THAT HE HAD ADDED TO NASCAR RACING OVER THE YEARS.
