Martin will join Michael Waltrip and Clint Bowyer at the grand opening of Clint Bowyer’s Autoplex in Emporia, Kan. 4-6 p.m. Thursday.

Martin then holds his ninth annual fan appreciation event on May 4 at his Batesville, Ark. car dealership and museum.

Seven-time Sprint Cup Champion Richard Petty joins Martin this year. Martin will begin signing autographs at 9 a.m. with Petty joining at noon. Both will appear on stage for a question and answer session after the autographs. Fan Appreciation Day will also include a live Sirius broadcast, race cars and tours of the museum. For more information go to www.markmartinmuseum.com

JOINING BOWYER IN KANSAS: “I’ve never been to Emporia, Kansas so I’m looking forward to going out there to see what all Clint has going on I know he’s really proud to have a Toyota dealership. He used to work there so it is one of those cool stories of starting out at the bottom and working your way to the top. We have a lot of fun together and add in Michael Waltrip and who knows what will happen.”

MARTIN ON FAN APPRECIATION DAY: “This is our ninth year doing it and I’m really excited because we have The King (Richard Petty) coming to join us this year. That’s about as big as it gets. Like everyone else, Richard has always been one of my heroes. I would never imagine Richard would someday come to my fan event and museum. I think that fans will be as excited as I am having him join all of us.

“We’ll do autographs, question and answers, and just have a fun time. It seems like this deal gets better and better every year. I like giving back to the fans and this is our biggest event of the year to give back. We have a lot of stuff at the museum that I think both new and longtime NASCAR fans or fans of any racing would enjoy.”

KANSAS: “Kansas is a great place. It's almost like a home track because I raced so much up in Springfield (Mo.) and I-70 Speedway and around there, so we should have a lot of charged-up fans. We were a step off in Texas, but we’ll get that back this weekend in Kansas.”
