Mark Martin Runs 1986 Paint Scheme For All-Star Race

During the Nascar All-Star Race on May 21st, Mark Martin will be sporting a red Chevy Impala sponsored by Farmers Insurance. Farmers Insurance will be a primary sponsor for five races during the 2011 season.

Mark Martins car for the All-Star Race will be a throwback to 1986 when Hendrick Motorsports fielded the Folgers Monte Carlo driven by Tim Richmond. In 1986 Tim Richmond had Harry Hyde as his crew chief, which proved to be a potent combination.  Tim Richmond won seven races and eight pole positions during that season.

Mark Martin has been with Farmers Insurance for over five years and stated that it was a great deal for the fans to bring back this paint scheme, and that he was pretty excited to be a part of it.
