Martin Truex Jr.

35-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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sometimes being the leader when a caution comes out late in the race is not the most envious position to be in. Just ask Truex Jr., who had the dominant car Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway leading six different times for a race high of 141 laps. Truex's decision not to pit on a late caution would be his only pitfall, and he eventually fell back to finish sixth in the Duck Commander 500, furniturerowracing.com reports.
