CORNELIUS, N.C. ‚ÄĒ No.55 Aaron‚Äôs Dream Machine Driver Mark Martin will make his 55th Sprint Cup start at Richmond International Raceway Saturday night in the Toyota Owners 400. The 54-year-old future Hall of Famer won the pole for this race in 2012 and will likely be at the front of the field Saturday night. Martin‚Äôs No. 55 is 11th in owner points as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series holds its ninth points race of the 2013 season. Martin owns 18 top-five finishes in 54 Richmond starts.

RICHMOND: ‚ÄúThis is my 55th race at Richmond and I am driving the No. 55 Aaron‚Äôs Dream Machine plus Toyota is sponsoring the race so we have all that going for us. We were fortunate enough to win the pole here last year and MWR has done really well here of late. Clint won this race in the fall and we finished third. Martin Truex has been on fire the last two weeks. So, we are pretty optimistic Saturday night is going to be a lot of fun. Richmond is one of the best places we race and it seems like it‚Äôs always a great show for the fans.‚ÄĚ
