The NASCAR season is back upon us and it is time to get you caught up with everything that happened in the offseason. Start ‘N’ Park Blog will be going through their list of drivers running the full schedule in 2013 and telling you what you can expect from those drivers in the new year. Today’s entry is the driver of the #55 Aaron’s Toyota, Mark Martin.
Driver: Mark Martin
Team: Michael Waltrip Racing
Crew Chief: Rodney Childers
2012 Finish: 26th
What’s new for 2013: No changes for this team, running races between Martin (24), Michael Waltrip (3), and Brian Vickers (9).
Mike’s Rank: 26th
Mike’s Take: I’d take Martin in 24 races versus a handful of drivers running the full season. I’m still leaning towards last year was a fluke for MWR, but would not be surprised if Martin gets win before the year is out.
Jason’s Rank: 28th
Jason’s Take: Martin will win a race or two and have some great finishes in the select races he competes in the No.55 car.
Brandon’s Rank: 23rd
Brandon’s Take: Martin has had some solid runs in the #55 car during his run in 2012. Can he and Brian Vickers continue to provide MWR will solid finished in the #55?
Brittany’s Rank: 33rd
Brittany’s Take: The ageless wonder will not race the full season, so I can’t rank him any higher.
