I heard he found a Sugar Momma to take care of him, the only thing he has to do is walk her dog everyday.

I will be at the track from time to time, but not racing, just hanging out with everyone. As for racing, I have not picked up a transmitter since the on-road worlds back in July, and don't plan to do any racing in the forseeable future. As for what races I will be attending really depends on my work schedule and I don't want to commit to any of them. The Reedy race in one race I would like to try to make every year, but being on Memorial Day weekend makes it a tough one to attend.

If you want to contact me feel free to via the email below.

youll be back. They all come back. Its in your blood.

I have gone through it before.. then of all people, my mother made sense of it. She said you have found somthing that you enjoy doing, and your good at it.. in some form, you should never stop. Everyone needs that somthing. Otherwise youll either A) go crazy or B) regret it.

Hope your comeback is sooner than later.

Nope, that's next year. He already has a part-time Cup ride with MB next year and they named the rookie #6 replacement this morning. Now all he has to do is with the championship this year and finish properly.

Mark Martin is driving for MB2 now. Now called Ginn Racing. He will drive a shorter race schedule. Mark is spend more time with Matt Martin and help develop the young drivers. Mark says that after all the years of racing. Family is more important at this point. I give him credit for that.
