My Favorite NASCAR Driver

Mark Martin

Mark was the first driver hired by Jack Roush when he founded his NASCAR operation in 1988. The two went on to become one of the most successful duos in sports history, accumulating 83 NASCAR wins, four Sprint Cup Series runner-up finishes, and building Roush Fenway into the winningest team in NASCAR history.

Mark piloted Roush Fenway's flagship #6 Ford from 1988 until 2006. During that time he accumulated 35 Sprint Cup Series victories. At the end of his driving tenure at Roush Fenway he held a record five IROC (International Race of Champions) Championships and a then record 47 Nationwide Series wins. For his career Martin posted 96 career NASCAR victories.

Although Mark never won a championship in NASCAR's premier series, in 2017 he was voted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in his second year of eligibility.
