 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Mark Martin made big bucks with 50 Cent by his side.
Martin has never been a fan of restrictor-plate racing, which often results in a large numbers of cars running side-by-side and in tight packs.
But this one ended considerably better than most of Martin's others.
It may have had something to do with rapper 50 Cent being in the No. 55 team's pit before and during the race.
Martin says he told 50 Cent if his team won the race, ``he would have to change his game to 55 Cent for one day. I was trying really hard to get that name change for one day.''
Martin would have preferred his own name switch - to Daytona 500 winner. Instead, he settled for third place behind Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
