07:00 AM ET 05.14 | Mark Martin, whose contract with Hendrick Motorsports runs out at the end of this year, doesn't know where he'll be racing in 2012. Nor is the veteran driver particularly concerned about it. "Well, lucky for me, I don't need a job, so I don't have to worry about it," Martin, 52, said on a national teleconference this week.

When you have Mark's approach to it, the jobs will come. Plus you can pretty picky and choosy when the offers come around.

If worse comes to worse, he has good wheel handling ability, a cab driver job in New York could be on the horizon. LOL

Actually in accordance with NASCAR at Homestead they will have a giant wheel with all of Marks perspective job offers that will be spun and whomever the wheel stops on that will be where Mark drives next season. You know do a little cross promotion with Wheel of Fortune.
