Martin Signs Winning Hood

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Per tradition, following this year's GM FlexFuel 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway, the hood from the winning truck is inducted into DAYTONA USA for the year.

Mark Martin's winning No. 6 Scotts Ford hood, with signatures from the entire team, will remain inside "The Official Attraction of NASCAR" through Speedweeks 2007.

While his Roush Racing team was able to sign the hood, Martin never got an opportunity. On Wednesday, Martin, a resident of Daytona Beach, visited DAYTONA USA to complete the task.

"I meant to get back before now but you know how it is in the crazy season with all the things we’ve got going on," said Martin, who drives the No. 6 AAA Ford in the NEXTEL Cup Series. "I had so many balls in the air the week after the 500 that I didn't get it done. They asked me to come and do it that week and I never got to it. The time is now."

Martin earned his eighth career victory at "The World Center of Racing" in the GM FlexFuel 250 and became the second driver in race history to win from pole.

During his brief visit, Martin, who is competing in select Craftsman Truck Series races in 2006 and will make the move fulltime in 2007, looked back on how strong his truck was that night.

"It was fast," Martin said. "Obviously we got the pole so it was the fastest in qualifying and fastest in the race. It was a lot fun to drive. There are great drivers in that series and racing those trucks is like it was racing the cars 20 years ago in Cup. In my opinion, it's the best racing in NASCAR."
