Most people around the Jersey Shore look at Martin as their Hometown hero. He comes from a small town in Southern New Jersey, but Martin made it BIG. Driving for Michael Waltrip Racing, #56 NAPA Auto Parts and has been in the "chase" quite a few times and I'm hopeful he will be in it again this year. The AdvoCare 500 night race in Atlanta last week, Martin drove with a broken wrist from an accident on the track a week earlier where he was slammed into the wall. This week finishing 3rd, Martin was touted as unbelievable by one announcer for his ability to drive with a cast and through the pain he must have been feeling. 

Folks in South Jersey wish Martin good luck in his attempt to make the "chase", a fast recovery from the broken wrist, and hopeful he wins this week at the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway, Richmond Va.
