Mark Martin's Victories of 2009: Southern 500, Darlington

We continue celebrating the victorious comeback of racing vet Mark Martin in 2009 with this second win at the Southern 500 in Darlington, South Carolina.

Yesterday's video blog was about Mark Martin's first win in NASCAR in roughly four years when he got the checkered flag at the Subway Fresh Fit 500 in Joliet, Illinois back in April 2009. Well, a month later Martin got his second win of the season back in May 2009 at the Southern 500 race in Darlington, South Carolina.

This video contains the electrifying conclusion of this year's race in Darlington, with Mark Martin (the #5 car) taking the lead over fellow Hendrick Motorsports team mate Jimmie Johnson. This marks his second win at the Southern 500, with the last one taking place in 1993. Plus, as it turns out this race marked the first time since 1999 he has won multiple races in the Sprint Cup Series in one seaso, and also marks his 37th first place finish in Sprint Cup races. Mark Martin's car gets the checkered flag at about 3:32 mark.
