When Daniel Dye takes the green flag in the Montana 200 on July 16, his crew chief will feel an adrenaline surge he hasn’t felt in quite some time. Mark Martin is going to want to his car to wax the field.
Yes, that Mark Martin.
The NASCAR Hall of Famer has agreed to call the shots for the ARCA and Super Late Model youngster as he takes on the best of the northwest at the Mission Valley Super Oval in a car prepared by defending ARCA West Champion crew chief Travis Sharpe.
Dye first connected with Sharpe on June 4 when he entered the West race at Portland International Raceway. It was an enjoyable experience, and both wanted to work together again. Simultaneously, Martin has become close friends with Sharpe over the past half-decade.
Martin attended the Montana 200 in 2021, loved the trip so much that he vowed to do it again, but never could have predicted serving as crew chief under any scenario.
