Kyle Larson, Mark Martin exchange praises

Two drivers that have driven the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet shared their mutual admiration for each other on Twitter this week.

Freshly locked into the Championship 4 following his win at Texas, Kyle Larson answered a fan question on Twitter asking about which retired driver he’d like to race against today.

“There’s a handful of guys I’ve gotten to race with that are now retired that I wish I could have raced with in their prime. Tony Stewart. Jeff Gordon. I got to be in the same race with Mark Martin maybe once or twice. My first Cup race I know I did. Mark Martin would be another one. I’ve heard a lot of people say he’s the most talented race car driver they’ve gotten to work with. Mark would be on that list as well.”
