Mark Martin on His Way To the Cup

Dean StewartContributor IJune 15, 2009

 

Mark Martin is on his way to his first sprint cup championship.

With sunday's win at Michigan his third of the season, new energy has sparked a fire in Martin. Martin currently sits in eighth in the points standing's. He was in the right place at the right time again. With Jimmie Johnson leading most of the race and Biffle on his way for the win, they both fell short running out of fuel. Which gave Martin the chance to steal the win and he did.

The now 50-year-old driver is driving like he's in his 20s and I bet he'll race the entire season this year unlike the past few seasons.

He deserves to win the cup he's one of the driver's I grew up watching as a kid. He would come so close and come up short at the end. This year will be different he's making a strong run for the cup and with HMS behind him this could be his year. A few years ago he wanted to hang it up; he feels different now.

Whatever he's doing he needs to keep it up; I see Mark winning at least two more races this year.
