INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - NASCAR veteran Mark Martin said Friday he
has no idea what his future holds and calls speculation about where
he'll be driving in 2011 "disrespectful."
Martin is under contract to drive the No. 5 Chevrolet for
Hendrick Motorsports through the end of next season. He'll be
replaced in the No. 5 in 2012 by Kasey Kahne.
Kahne's current deal with Hendrick, however, leaves him without
a Cup ride in 2011. Martin has said repeatedly he has no plans to
step aside to make room for Kahne.
The normally reserved Martin grew angry when pressed on the
situation Friday, saying the speculation "makes it look like I'm
going to get fired."
Martin, who finished second in points last year, is 14th in the
standings heading into Sunday's race at Indianapolis Motor
