Mark Martin went to victory lane as Larry Shaw fought a battle of his own in the pit area
Years ago, a young Mark Martin was just finding the seat behind a steering wheel. He started at the Ozark dirt tracks.
In his corner, Martin had Larry Shaw. Shaw built a ’55 Chevy for Martin and headed to the dirt track. They were both based out of Batesville, Arkansas at that time and both still remain there to this day.
Dirt track fights aren’t anything out of the norm. Sometimes, a smile is all it takes to get things going.
Mark Martin engages Larry Shaw via the Mark Martin Podcast, “You tell a story every once in awhile about how a smile will get you into a fight. He’s going to tell this story. But, I believe there’s a little bit more to this story that got him into a fight than just a grin.”
