Title: Phoenix Race
Post by: Cheryl on April 20, 2009, 05:32:09 PM
I was actually glad to see Mark Martin get this win (which surprised myself since I've never been a fan).   :laugh:  But I was particularling glad when he passed Stewart near the end.  Also impressed that Ryan didn't mess with him to help Stewart as I feared when I saw him stay out on that last pit stop sequence. 

But really, it was Lou pulling his old Winn-Dixie shirt out of the closet to wear on Saturday afternoon that got Mark back to Victory Lane.   ;)  He said he felt inspired after them talking about Roush's 100th win in the Busch Series Friday night. 

It was really neat to see Burton, Kenseth, and Roush come to VL to congratulate Mark.  Very classy move for them all.

That would be about my current 4 favorite people in racing, Jack, Mark, Jeff and Matt. Pretty darn good group. :)

I was also moved by the post-race reaction.  It was a reward for the class and generosity that Mark Martin has shown through the years. :)
