Mark Martin: The Racerís Racer
Motorbooks, Paperback, 2006-05-31
Mark Martin is a racerís racer: a tough, tenacious driver whose professionalism and dedication comes through race after race. Coming heartbreakingly close to winning a Cup championship four times, he is a NASCAR fan favorite because of his easygoing demeanor and competitive, clean driving style.
Mark Martin: The Racerís Racer is the most up-to-date illustrated chronicle of Markís long, illustrious driving career-from the days he learned to drive in his dadís company trucks to his early ASA races and eventual teaming with Jack Roush. With interviews from Mark, his sister Glenda, and the crew chief from Markís rookie season, Stock Car Racing magazine contributor Jerry F. Boone reveals how a kid from Batesville, Arkansas, became one of the worldís top stock car drivers with 35 Cup wins and 5 IROC championships. Photographs from veteran shooters Dick Conway, Nigel Kinrade, and the Stock Car Racing archives follow Martinís journey, and driver No. 6ís complete Cup race statistics are also included.
