Tony Stewart Wants To Hire Mark Martin At Stewart-Haas Racing

Last week, Tony Stewart officially hired Danica Patrick to run a partial Sprint Cup Series schedule next year. Now he'd like to add another driver to the Stewart-Haas Racing roster: Mark Martin.

"I would love to have him," Stewart said Friday at Atlanta Motor Speedway. "The biggest thing is us getting the financial backing to run the remainder of those races. I would love nothing more than Mark in all the races that Danica doesn't run next year. I've been a Mark Martin fan for a long time and, trust me, I would love nothing more than to have Mark in one of our cars."

Stewart said Martin would be "a leading candidate" if the team was able to get sponsorship for the remainder of the season. GoDaddy currently sponsors Martin, but apparently will not continue to do so in the future as it focuses its dollars on Patrick.

Martin is one of several drivers with uncertain plans for next season. Clint Bowyer, Brian Vickers and David Ragan are also looking at their options.
