Henndrick Motorsports has PIR figured out

Six races into the 2010 Sprint Cup season, Mark Martin finds himself back in 17th spot in the points standings with a couple of top-fives.

"We all feel very frustrated and feel like we're in a hole that we didn't want to be in," crew chief Alan Gustafson said. "Indirectly or directly we're all responsible for that. It's very frustrating, but it's also motivating although there's no one who needs motivation. We've had team meetings and discussions about things that we need to clean up and do better, but everyone is extremely motivated to get in there and do it."

The Cup Series' visit to Phoenix International Raceway for Saturday night's Subway Fresh Fit 600 should provide Martin and the rest of the No. 5 team the perfect opportunity to bolster their 2010 stats and head toward a position similar to where they finished out last season, second in points to teammate and champion Jimmie Johnson and with a tally of five wins.
