Mark Martin received a piece of advice very early in his career from Dick Trickle that he's never forgotten.
''He was the one that told me, and this is kind of corny, but it isn't when you're 18 or 19 years old - he told me `In order to finish first, first you must finish,''' Martin said. ''That stuck with me always.''
