Yeah Mark is the man, he would have been so very dominant in the Truck series on a full time basis. And Folger's, shoot, I remember back to the Stroh's Light and ASA days. Mark is a class act and an amazing race car driver, one of the best to ever suit up in my opinion.

Mark is a tribute to NASCAR,always a gentelman he would never knowingly cause another competitor to wreck. As far as him switching to Chevy great move,i think part of his problem this year was poor equipment. NASCAR fan for thirty years i think i speak with some wisdom.

Mark is not a traitor. Just because he will not be driving fords next year does not make him any less a person or driver. If YOU were really a Mark Martin fan YOU would support him not the Ford Motor Company. Mark is getting for his son Matt, who is one heck of a racer already, to get into the big time when it is time. Have been a fan since the ASA days. GOOD LUCK MARK.

Get real dork.....Mark is a drivers driver....he could be a winner in a rickshaw if that was what was being raced.
IT ain't the car or manufacture..it's the people that win races.

Yes I agree it Sad that Rousch And Mark couldn't get things together to do one more season. Mark did jack a favor this year and Jack shouldn't put so must pressure on Mark to Drive a full time schedule if he doesn't want too. Jack has made a big mistake on not working out a plan to have Mark with him.I also think Mark will do good next year. Yes Mark is what Nascar should want ALL of their driver to be like. Even if Mark hasn't won a championship he has proven that he is one of the GREATS driver of all times. He has help so many driver become what they are today.I very happy to say even though I don't like chevys I will be a "MARK MARTIN FAN UNTIL THE END"!!!!! Mark I want to Thank You For all you have done for Nascar.Best of luck next year.
Keep On winning for your Fans

What in the hell are you thinking???? Ok, I had to pause for a few minutes after reading this, before I said something that I could not take back. First of all, I am glad he left Jack. He has never been given a car that would give him a shot at the Championship, and every spot he has had, he earned!!! He is the only reason that I ever got involved in this sport, and the thought of him not being out there running on Sunday's made my heart hurt. I am so glad that he has agreed to go to Ginn Racing at the bargain price of 14 million for part time work! I also know Mark well, and if he is in contention, there will be nothing part~time about 2007. He will run the entire year! Not only am I a fan, but I am his cousin, and I am so proud of him, on and off of the track! You obviously are not a true fan...I think we call people like you Band Wagon fans! One of the things that has always been in Nascar, is fan loyalty! There is no other like it, and Nascar fans are the most loyal to their driver til the bitter end! Mark Martin finally has the number he deserves....01.

Mark will show these young drivers how to get it done. Look forward to seeing him race. Soon all the pros will be gone and NASCAR won't be the same.

I am very glad Mark is running this year. I had very little interest in stock car racing till 1999. I was more into the funny cars. Mark got me really interested. Thinking he was not racing anymore is a sorry thought
Race on all!!!

You've got to believe whether it's Gibbs, Hendrick, or Roush, they are the elite.....If Martin couldn't get the job done with Roush, there's no way he'll be able to do it in substandard equipment with a half schedule.......
