Mark Martin will now be teammates with Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer, whom Martin calls "two of the brightest stars in NASCAR." The contract talks did not take long. The contract has been worked on the past three weeks, and it was signed on Wednesday. One thing many Martin fans were hoping for will not happen; Mark Martin will not race in the Nationwide Series or Truck Series. Many believed that he could drive a truck for Kyle Busch Motorsports. "I've got plenty to do and get to do what I really love to do," says Martin.
