AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Mark Martin currently has no plans to race beyond next week's season finale at Homestead.
He shied away from announcing an official retirement Friday when discussing his NASCAR future. For now, the 54-year-old plans only to work with Stewart-Haas Racing. He'll test the No. 14 Chevrolet until Tony Stewart can race again, but said he has turned down every opportunity to race competitively next season.
Martin said he's ready for the next phase of his life.
Considered by many to be the best driver never to win a Cup championship, Martin has 40 wins and will make his 881st career start Sunday at Phoenix.
He has finished second in the standings five times, most recently 2009, when he returned to a full Cup schedule after racing a partial season for two years.
