Martin Museum Gets Red Flag

 

Batesville, AR--Mark Martin couldn’t speed past Mother Nature on his way to building a museum in his hometown of Batesville.  Weekend rains made it impossible to begin work on the new museum and car lot.

 

Mark Martin Ford Co-Owner Lance Landers said there is just nothing to do now but sit and wait.  “We are planning on getting things going as soon as possible,” he says.  “We’ll start just as soon as it dries up.”

 

The Museum should house several of Mark Martins racing vehicles along with awards and gifts given to him over his lifetime of racing.

 

Martin plans to go into semi-retirement after this current NASCAR season.
