Hey Mark, Skip A Couple And Decide Later!

Astute listener Duane in North Carolina did the math, figuring out that Mark Martin has been averaging 165 points per race so far this season en route to the NASCAR Nextel Cup points lead.

The fourteenth-place driver is averaging 110 points per race, meaning that after six races, he should have approximately 660 points. Meanwhile, if Martin accumulates more 165 points this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway – his average for the season – he would have 660 championship points, allowing him to skip Bristol and Martinsville, and still be in the hunt for a Top-12 point standing.

Sorry, Mark, but those questions may not be going away anytime soon, after all.
