In Junior's defense, there aren't all that many drivers who have had or will have as good a career as Mark Martin. He'll go down as the best that never won the Cup, for sure. And to be honest, there are several guys that have won a Cup that aren't as good as Martin. Bobby Labonte, Kurt Busch, and Matt Kenseth come to mind without even having to look up the list of past champions.
Have a fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas!
