Martin Truex Jr.

36-Year-Old Driver – Furniture Row Racing

 

2015 Fantasy Racing Outlook

Given the disastrous season that Truex had in his debut at Furniture Row Racing, it was hard to see last season's performance coming. The veteran driver was winless and had only five top-10 finishes in 2014. He would return to the No. 78 Chevrolet in 2015 and win his first race in two seasons, grab a career-best 22 top-10 finishes and make a very deep run in last season's Chase for the Cup. Nothing about the rebound makes sense, short of the crew chief position. That is the one factor that did turnover between 2014-15. Cole Pearn replaced Todd Berrier, and he formed great chemistry with Truex right out of the gate. Truex posted top 10s in the first seven races of last season and never looked back. Furniture Row Racing will change from Chevrolet to Toyota in 2016, so there could be some growing pains, but optimism is running very high with this team at present.

The best summation of Truex Jr.’s performance came from race winner Brad Keselowski. “Martin had the best car all night – if he didn’t have that trouble at the end (pit road penalty) he probably would have won this race,” said Keselowski, who saved just enough fuel to win Saturday night’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. As he has been throughout the season on the 1.5-mile ovals, Truex was once again dominant, but the penalty for passing the leader on pit road coupled with a fuel mileage gamble left him with a 10th-place finish, furniturerowracing.com reports.

The curse, jinx, hex, whammy, voodoo, spell continued for Truex Jr. at Dover, who once again saw victory slip away as a result of an oddity late in Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series race. Truex suffered more bad luck with 46 laps remaining in the 400-lap race at Dover International Speedway. He eventually settled for a ninth-place finish, thanks to an incredible comeback with a heavily damaged race car, furniturerowracing.com reports.
