Michael Waltrip Racing will keep the same trio of drivers in its No. 55 NASCAR Sprint Cup entry in 2013. Mark Martin, Brian Vickers and Michael Waltrip will continue to share the driving duties in the car.
Martin will drive in the 24 points races, plus both the Daytona Shootout and the Sprint All-Star Race. Waltrip will drive in three races - the July race at Daytona International Speedway and both races at Talladega Superspeedway. Vickers will drive in nine races, including both races at Bristol Motor Speedway, both at Martinsville Speedway, both at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the road courses at Sonoma and Watkins Glen International and the Kentucky Speedway race.
"I love my schedule and I love our lineup," said Martin, whose four poles in 2012 equal the most of any driver. "Brian has a tremendous amount of experience and talent for such a young driver and you saw at Talladega that Michael Waltrip is as good as anyone in a restrictor plate race."
