Mark Martin to run full 2010 schedule
Mark Martin
Hendrick Motorsports' Mark Martin will return to drive the No. 5 Chevrolet for the entire 36-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season in 2010.

It will be the 22nd full-time Cup campaign of Martin's career and his second with car owner Rick Hendrick.
 
Last July, Martin signed a two-year contract with Hendrick Motorsports covering one full Sprint Cup season in 2009 and one part-time schedule of 26 events in 2010. The revised agreement was signed this week.
 
"Week in and week out, Mark continues to be one of the best race car drivers in the world," Hendrick said. "He's already made an incredible contribution to Hendrick Motorsports, and our entire company is excited about running another full season and winning races with him in 2010."
 
With his April 18 victory at Phoenix, Martin became just the fourth driver to record 400 top-10 finishes in Sprint Cup competition. It was his 36th career win in NASCAR's top series.
 
"It means a lot to drive the No. 5 Chevy for Rick and for Hendrick Motorsports," said Martin, 50, of Batesville, Ark. "I'm in the best condition of my life, I'm recharged, and I'm motivated. Going to the race track every weekend is still really fun, and that's the key. There's more gas in my tank."
