Mark Martin is leading the Nextel Cup Standings. Didn't anyone tell this guy that when you leave Rousch Racing you're not supposed to lead anything? Granted the season is only two races old, but Martin and Ginn Racing have showed us two things: first, the two are a match made in heaven. Martin has always been known as a "crew-chief-in-a-car". He knows how subtle adjustments affect a car's handling through a variety of conditions and this vast knowledge is permeating through the entire Ginn team. Even Joe Nemechek is in the top 5. Second, with two top 5's on two vastly different tracks, Martin is in position to post some very nice finishes on the restricter plate and tri-oval tracks that make up almost two thirds of all the NASCAR races.
And Mark is only running a partial schedule??? Seriously, if only for the fans, you should reconsider. You're still fast dude. Ride that Army car and let's see how far you can take it THIS season. The rookie can wait.
