CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Mark Martin will drive a full Sprint Cup
schedule for Hendrick Motorsports in 2010.

The 50-year-old Martin signed a two-year contract with Hendrick
last summer, but the second year originally was to be a partial
schedule. It will be Martin's 22nd full season at NASCAR's top
level.

He will keep his seat in the No. 5 Chevrolet. Martin drove that
car to a win at Phoenix last month that made him the third oldest
NASCAR winner in history.

Martin's decision likely will impact Brad Keselowski's future
with the team. Keselowski, who has a developmental deal with
Hendrick, wants to race a full Cup schedule in 2010, but Hendrick
does not have an open seat available.

In his fifth career start, Keselowski got his first Cup win two
weeks ago at Talladega.
