Oh, Just Retire

Look, I loved Mark Martin when he was a race car driver, but he is older than dirt and these are not race cars any more anyway. Now we hear that he is moving to a team owned by Michael Waltrip, who pretends to be a race car driver but is actually only a mouth with arms and legs, and will drive 25 races per year while the owner drives five races, and either the car will be idle or some other driver will drive six races. Give me a break.

So Martin is driving junk for part of a season, leaving him ineligible for the championship, and accomplishing what, other than embarrassing himself?

  1. I agree Bill. After having a great career and needing to retire gracefully at the top of his game and be remembered that, he's decided to embarrass himself in the same manner that motormouth DW did. Pathetic to see Mark go out like this and be remembered that way.
