Past Fantasy Outlooks
Martin moved into semi-retirement after the 2013 season. He will do some testing and driver coaching for Stewart-Haas Racing this season, but his days of racing on Sunday's are over.
The 54-year-old legend will saddle up for another part-time schedule with Michael Waltrip Racing in 2013. Martin will once again pilot the No. 55 Toyota under the guidance of crew chief Rodney Childers. The duo combined for four pole positions and 10 Top-10 finishes in just 24 starts last season. Martin narrowly missed victory lane on two occasions last year, so his level of performance was very high. We expect similar results from the veteran driver in the upcoming season. Martin should crest the 10 Top-10 finish plateau and possibly get back into winner’s circle.
2006 was supposed to be Martin's first retirement season, but a driver shakeup at Roush Racing caused owner Jack Roush to ask Martin for just one more season. Martin will be good for another Chase run in 2006, but don't expect another top 5 points result.
