The 43 Days of Daytona - 4th Place in 2005

The Top NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Driver Profiles of 2005.


Mark Martin
#6 - AAA

Mark Martin had a great swan song season. So great, in fact, that he and Roush decided not to part ways at season's end, but have rolled forward for at least one more with a new sponsor and a rejuvenated attitude.

He ran the full season in the Roush Racing Viagra Ford. The Viagra sponsorship deal ended at the end of the last season. He recorded 1 win, 12 Top 5's, and 19 Top 10's. His winnings totaled $5,994,350.

Martin is running a limited NASCAR Craftsman Truck schedule. And doing damned good doing it. Back to back wins in the two races ran so far.

This car is projected to be Todd Kluever in 2007. With Roush's agreement with NASCAR to downsize his team, I'm not sure what that says here. Seems like it would be a natural to close up the #6 and be down to 4 teams and ready to roll, but, then, I don't work for NASCAR or Jack Roush.

Will sponsorship be big enough to allow the team to field a car every week? This car will run regardless. The AAA deal is signed and I would assume that it is solid.

Do I think he could go win a championship? It is possible.

Do I think he could win a race or two and have a good season? With Roush equipment, his talent, and experience, he should win at least one race this season.
