Mark, Matt aiming for wins
Mark Martin isn't the only member of his family driving this
weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Matt Martin, Mark's 9-year-old son, will race in a Bandolero
mini-car event after Saturday's ARCA race.
"I always look forward to having my family with me," Mark
Martin said. "But when Matt can race at the same track as me, that
makes it even more special. We've never been able to do that
"My final practice will be done early in the afternoon, so I
will have a few hours during the ARCA race to spend time with him
and help him prepare for his race."
Matt finished third in a Bandolero race this month at Lowe's
"It's pretty cool to race at the same track as my Dad," Matt
said. "It's always fun to have him at my races, especially since
the Bandoleros are still pretty new for me."
