Well Bozo I actually hope Mark Martin does well. I think he's a good clean driver and if anyone deserves a championship to me it would be him. Don't forget though he has already won. He's a great guy and competitor.

1990: the year Mark was robbed of his first Cup championship.
He sure was. His crew chief Robin Pemberton robbed him when he cheated with the unapproved carburator spacer one half inch to thick, Martin got docked 46 points.

no NASCAR robbed MM they wanted to have their "Golden boy" Dale Sr. win another CUP title
Nascar did not do the cheating it was Mark's Crew chief...

I understand the penalty but why 46pts why not 25pts. I think mark only lost by like 26pts so he still would have lost by 5pts but i just wondered where they came up with the 46. Its a shame that martin never won a championship. I just wish he would have left roush and went to hendrick 15yrs ago.

Mark Martin has never had that win at all cost and dam the rest attitude enough to be a threat to win on a regular basis or gather enough points to be a champion. I know about the spacer and was at that race when he was penalized the points and realize that was his best hope for a championship. People, understand, Mark Martin is a great guy, loves his kids and in interviews is proud of everything and everybody within five miles of the track, however, if you had a field of 43 Mark Martins NASCAR racing would be more of a bore than it is now. I can just hear the broadcast of a race, and we go down the backstretch and ten of the cars with older tires go high so that ten cars with fresh tires can pass, OR, people look at the race today, not one of the drivers has contested a turn yet, they all are acting like gentlemen, allowing others to have the turn first. Mark Martin was hired by Hendrick for one reason, to be a baby sitter for Joonyer, somebody Joonyer knows, respects and will listen to. Funny, isn't it, one poster states Martin was hosed for Sr. in 1990 and now he becomes a babysitter for Joonyer.

You make the assumption Mark did not know about the spacer, however, please tell us where you get your inside info., were you a member of the crew? You know all drivers will say they had no idea something was wrong on a car, hell, even Mikey Waltrip threw David Hyder under the bus for the illegal substance found in the intake of his car two years ago at Daytona, attempting to say that a crew chief did something like that without the owner/driver's knowledge.

I saw on CMT that they're going to have their version of MTV Cribs. I think I saw where Kyle Busch will be on in January. I will keep an eye out and try to let you know when it's coming on.
