Re: Mark Martin's realization:

True he's going to be loyal to his sponsors, but I can also see why he's thinking that way though:

- He's been close to the head of the pack or leading in every race this season so far
- He's currently #1 in the points standings
- 3-for-3 in top 5 finishes so far
- Is consistently averaging higher in finishing positions this year than he's averaged over any other year of his career since 1981
- Came within a hair of winning Daytona for the first time in his career (I still think he was ripped off though - it should've been red flagged)
- And after only 3 races, has already won close to 1/3 of what he did last year over 36 races ($4,282,550).

After racing for Ford/Roush for how many years, despite having some good success over that time, never once has he consistently been able to challenge for the lead in each and every race.

.... and to be honest, while Ford did win in California a couple weeks ago, they didn't exactly have a great showing in Vegas yesterday.

Re: Mark Martin's realization:

Look at the Ford/Chevy/Dodge/Toyota ratio, of coarse they will have a harder time staying up front, there aren't as many of them. Jack Roush was the first ever multi teem builder, followed closely by Yates Racing. The cat in the hat made martin, he was my idol for many years. You shouldn't be able to trade any amount of money in the world for loyalty, but obviously Mark didn't have a problem w/it. Just a thought.

I don't think it had anything to do with money or loyalty:

Martin wanted to race part-time, Roush didn't have a spot for a part time driver.
