Absolutely Kouz. My dad and I became nascar fans together in the late '90s, and Mark Martin was always our driver. Probably the fondest memory of any sporting event I'll ever have is getting to see Mark Martin win at Chicagoland in 2009 with him in person. This was well after we'd kind of given up hope that we'd ever get to see him win while we were in the stands. I bought my dad a signed diecast commemorating that race that makes me smile every time I see it.
