Asked if he would turn a guy to win the title:

"I haven’t seen Jimmie (Johnson) knock anybody out of the way to win races. I don’t feel like changing who I am is necessary to get the job done. I don’t feel like it’s necessary. I’ve done what I’ve done in the past and I will do what I do in the future based off of split second decisions so I really can’t tell you"...

Mark Martin is a class act. How can anyone not like him?

If it isnt Jr getting it for Hendrick, then i hope it's Mark Martin. I want to see Johnson knocked off the top spot this year, but if it isnt Jr or Mark, then i hope Jeff Burton gets it cause behind Mark, he's the most respectable driver on the track and i'd love to see RCR get a championship since they havent got one since Dale Sr and i think Burton is the only driver in that stable that has the talent and intelligence to get that trophy for Childress.

Mark has nothing to prove to his REAL FANS.
We all know the facts and we all love Mark for who he is and not for some lousy hardware or a famous last name. The man is the epitome of class and integrity and he is the truest champion in every sense of the word.

First off, i agree with you that my opinion of Mark Martin will not change whether he wins the championship or not, he's one of the most well respected drivers to hit the track and i hope he gets it this year, but if not, he's still one of my fav.
I do have a problem with you throwing Jr under the bus because of his last name. I was a fan of his fathers and im a fan of Dale Jr, not because of his last name, but because of the potential i saw in him after his fathers death, and although he doesnt have the talent of his father, it did rub off on his son and i can see that when he drives a race car. Im sick and tired of hearing this knock on Dale Jr because of his last name. Even if he was to change his name, and he'd probably have to do that to shut u idiots up, i'd still pull for the Mountain Dew ride each week. I dont blame you for defending Mark Martin against idiots, but you make yourself one when you throw Dale Jr on the bus when nobody even brought him up! Focus on defending Mark Martin and leave the other drivers out of it you jackass!

I didn't mention any names. I could have been referring to Kyle Petty or Michael Waltrip for that matter. The point remains the same. No big deal, just my humble 2 cents worth. lol - Peace and enjoy the shootout!

Shoot Out starts in a couple hours...

NASCAR STILL HAS TIME TO CREATE THE MARK MARTIN RULE, and let him race similar to the Tony Stewart rule.

COME ON NASCAR...YOU CAN DO IT...
