CONCORD, N.C. (May 25, 2005) -- Roush Racing driver and 2005 NASCAR NEXTEL All-Star Challenge winner Mark Martin will be inducted into Lowe's Motor Speedway's prestigious Court of Legends prior to CTC Pole Night qualifying. Martin is also featured and honored on the ticket for CTC Pole Night.

"It's a great honor," said Martin. "In my opinion Lowe's Motor Speedway is the greatest place on earth to race and I think a lot of the speedway and the people who have made it what it is. It's a great compliment to know that they think enough of me to do this and I'm honored by the recognition.

"We've had some great runs and great wins at Lowe's and hopefully we aren't done just yet."

Martin will join NASCAR legends such as Richard Petty, Junior Johnson and Darrell Waltrip as his handprints and racing shoe print are cemented in the Court of Legends walkway leading to Lowe's Motor Speedway's main entrance. Speedway officials will also present Martin with a special framed edition of the CTC Pole Night collectible ticket featuring his likeness and detailing his accomplishments at the track.

The ceremony will feature Martin and Lowe's Motor Speedway president and general manager H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler and will be held at the Avenue of Flags leading to the second floor of the Smith Tower at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
