Sirius NASCAR Radio’s Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody has learned that Mark Martin will run a limited schedule in both the NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series’ in 2011 for Turner Motorsports.
Kyle Busch’s drive to become the all-time career winner in the NASCAR Nationwide Series may have just hit a speed bump. Reliable sources say Mark Martin will run an undetermined number of Nationwide and Truck races with Turner next season, in addition to his full-time Sprint Cup Series ride with Hendrick Motorsports. Specific dates will be announced once sponsorship and scheduling conflicts are determined. Turner Motorsports is actively seeking sponsorship for the effort, but a spokesperson for the team denied any knowledge of the deal when contacted earlier today. Martin's representatives declined to comment.
Martin is the all-time NASCAR Nationwide Series win leader with 48 career victories, just five more than a fast-closing Busch. He also has seven career Truck Series wins.
