Expecting a comeback? Martin says he's 'moved on'
Longtime Cup veteran ends any questions about potential comeback on Twitter

Not exactly breaking news here, but NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran Mark Martin officially quelled any line of questioning about a potential comeback to the sport, a season removed from announcing his retirement.

After being questioned on Twitter if he's missed racing now that we're a good month into the season, the 40-time race winner in NASCAR's premier series says he's 'moved on'.

Martin -- not exactly a stranger to the retire/un-retire dance after announcing he'd be cutting back after the 2005 season, only to run another eight seasons, four of which were full-time -- announced his retirement last November after running 28 of the schedule's 36 races split between a part-time ride for Michael Waltrip Racing, a one-race fill in for Denny Hamlin's No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and replacement driver for Tony Stewart after the three-time champion was injured in a sprint car accident.

Martin is currently still with Stewart-Haas Racing in a consultant role that includes testing.
