Mark Martin said Tuesday he expects to continue to work with Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014, after Tony Stewart returns back to the cockpit of the #14 SHR Chevy. Martin and his wife, Arlene, were at SHR's shop in Kannapolis, N.C., on Tuesday during Stewart's first press conference since breaking his right leg in two places in a sprint car accident in August. Afterward, Martin told FOXSports.com he likely will do testing for SHR next year, as well as work with Danica Patrick on helping her get more comfortable behind the wheel of her #10 SHR Chevy.
Martin is currently filling in for Stewart, driving the #14 as the team driver/co-owner recovers from his injuries. Stewart hates to test and said he would welcome having Martin continue on with the team next year - and with Stewart not expected to get back in the car before Daytona in February 2014, SHR needs someone to test. Martin is the logical candidate. Martin said discussions with SHR on continuing testing and consulting have been ongoing. "We were already talking about working together next year before Tony got hurt," Martin said. FoxSports
