Mark Martin, the former Roush Fenway driver who helped make the No. 6 so special, is proud to see it come back: "It’s the number we used when Jack and I first went racing in 1988," he said.

"There is so much history associated with that number and with the trials and successes that we went through as we helped build RFR into a premiere NASCAR team.

"I’m happy to see it return with Jack, Trevor and AdvoCare next season."
