Mark Martin Set to Dominate Daytona 500

Though I'm sure many of my readers don't know who Mark Martin is, he has always been someone who has inspired me. Some would argue that Nascar is not a sport, but not knowing the physical and mental demands of the sport I can understand that argument. That said Martin is a 50 year old I've watched race ever since I was a kid and though he's always a force to be reckoned with, he's never won the coveted Daytona 500 nor captured a Nascar championship.

So Close...

So what does this have to do with fitness and health. Well Mark is arguably the fittest guy out there. He trains harder than any other driver and now he can couple that with some of the best equipment which gives him the ingredients to a recipe for victory.

Today Martin will race in his 25th Daytona 500, and he's starting just outside of the pole. I don't think anyone will take him lightly in this race as he is sure to contend. There is nobody that deserves this win more than he does. Nobody is going to hand it to him though, he'll have to go out there and take what is his.
