Mark Martin is well-renowned when it comes to stock-car racing as he is known for not winning a single championship yet but has given most drivers of his time a nightmare with his skill behind the wheel and all this is pretty evident with him ending up as the Championship runner-up five times and also finished in third place four times and he also has four International Race of Champions Championship wins while also having 40 wins in the Cup Series and 49 wins, the highest for any driver in what is now known as the Xfinity Series.
