Nextel cup driver Mark Martin announced that he signed a two year contract with Hendrick Motor Sports. The 50 year old driver had recently said that he would drive a partial season for Hendricks in 2010. This week, he declared that he would be driving a full season in 2010.

Thank you, Mark!

Mark is the oldest active driver in cup series. With his first win of the season, the Subway Fresh 500, I'm sure that this won't be his last win this season.

Don't let the age fool you; Martin is still young at heart. He has a few more good years of driving left in him. He will give the young guns a good run for the money. With years of experience and a heart to win, keep you eyes on No. 5.
