Mark Martin wins California Craftsman Truck race
It's a good thing Mark Martin isn't running the complete NASCAR Craftsman Truck series this year. But he will be a shoe in when he does join the series full time in 2007. Martin drove the #6 Scott's Miracle Gro Ford to his second straight win in the Racetickets.com 200 at California Speedway in Fontana, CA. His main competition were teammates Todd Bodine-#30 Germain Toyota & Ted Musgrave-#9 ASE Toyota. Bodine was penalized and sent to the back of the field early in the race for jumping a restart. He wasted no time returening to the front. A green/white/checker finish was set up when Mike Wallace-#59 Harris Trucking Dodge crashed on lap 199. Martin led and Bodine & Musgrave at the restart. Bodine said that Martin would have to make a mistake to lose. Well, we're talking about Mark Martin so that didn't happen. Congratulations to Mark Martin on his victory and the competition can relax. He won't run the next race at Atlanta on March 17.
