Roush Fenway Racing announces that legendary NASCAR driver Mark Martin is returning to the race team where he excelled behind the wheel for almost 20 years - this time as the team’s driver development coach.
Martin was the first driver hired by team owner 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 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship runner-up finishes, and building Roush Fenway into the winningest team in NASCAR history. Martin piloted Roush Fenway’s flagship No. 6 Ford from 1988 until 2006. During that time he accumulated 35 NSCS victories. At the end of his tenure at Roush Fenway he held a record five prestigious IROC (International Race of Champions) Championships and a then record 47 NASCAR Nationwide Series wins. For his career Martin posted 96 career NASCAR victories.-Roush Fenway Racing Thu, Jul 31, 2014 03:19:00 PM

In 54 starts at Michigan, Mark Martin owns five victories and 18 top-five finishes, led 965 laps and won two poles.

He won the pole for the August race and led every lap except during pit stop sequences. Unfortunately, that 200-lap race ended on lap 65 when slower cars collected his car in an accident that sent the No. 55 sliding into pit lane where he speared the end of pit wall. All the damage came behind the driver’s side door so Martin escaped uninjured but it ruined a bid to win his sixth race at the two-mile, D-shaped oval in Brooklyn, Mich.-Michael Waltrip Racing
