DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - If Mark Martin keeps winning like this, even he might have to concede that he's racing for a Sprint Cup championship.

The 50-year-old Martin won for the second time in four races, outlasting Jimmie Johnson in a wreck-filled show at Darlington Raceway on Saturday night.

Martin's only other win here came at the 1993 Southern 500, a 16-year stretch.

Martin's victory ended a long, hot Saturday for NASCAR that began with the sobering news of Jeremy Mayfield's failed drug test and indefinite suspension, which was announced about two hours before the start of the race.
