For exam- pie, he finished in the top ten eleven times in 2008 out of the twenty-one starts he made. He also qualified for the Chase for the Cup all 3 years he raced full-time dunng its existence. Mark Martin also currently holds the record for most Nationwide Series wins with 48. Overall, Marlin has 36 career NASCAR Cup wins and has finished second in the Sprint Cup Senes point standings four times (1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002). In 1990, a 46-peint penalty at Richmond for using an ille- gal (but non-performanca enhancing) cafouretor spacer caused him to lose to Dale Eamherdt by 26 points in the final standings. Later NASCAR ,stated that they should not have penalized him, but they could not mlract the decision. Martin announced he would retire alter the 2005 season, dubbing the sea- son the "Salute to You" tour as a ltmnk you to his fans. Martin later agreed to come back and drive for 2006 season. In 2007, Marlin became the oldest dri- ver in the modemera to teed the Spdnt CUp points for more than one week. Last year, Mar~n made his 700th career stalt st the 2008 Auto Club 500. NASCAR says it would be open to other foreign manufac- tuners joining Toyota in stock car racing. "I'm not going to name names, but we have companies that are interested in particular in developing the North Amedcan market as robust as they can, and you are well aware as we are of the foreign manuf&cturers now produdng cars here in America," France said. France's comments come on the heels of an announcement by GM, which is reorganizing through bankruptcy, that it is making deep cuts in its support of NASCAR teams in Cup, Nationwide and truckd.
