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.

Truex Jr. called it "crazy bad luck." The Furniture Row Racing driver was referring to a peculiar incident that short-circuited his performance in Monday's rain-delayed and rain-shortened Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway. Truex, who started the 138 lapper from the pole, was owning the race early, leading the first 16 laps. But following a Lap-15 competition caution and a two-tire pit stop, trouble struck Truex's No. 78 Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Toyota, which posted an unsettling 38th-place finish in the Pennsylvania 400, Furniture Row Racing PR reports.
