Mark Martin's 2008 Season Standings

Following up from yesterday's post, I am running the season standings for all drivers only in the 24 races Mark competed in. This assumes no adjustment for the Chase.

Notice he got ninth last year and eighth this year, working with second-tier equipment. I can't imagine how good he's going to be with Hendrick next year. Though notice how bad Casey Mears is at #25 with the same equipment. Is that simply because he is a terrible driver?
