Truex To Drive For FRR In 2014
Furniture Row Racing announced that they have reached a multi-year agreement with Martin Truex Jr to drive the team’s No. 78 Chevy in the Sprint Cup Series in 2014.
Joe Garone, FRR General Manager said:
We couldn’t be happier to have landed one of the top drivers in NASCAR. Martin’s talents both on and off the track — have been well documented and everyone at Furniture Row Racing feels that he is an excellent fit to continue the success that we have enjoyed this season.
Furniture Row Racing has been high on my radar. The team has done a great job this year. It’s a talented organization and it has been impressive to see what they’ve accomplished over the past few seasons. What influenced my decision is team owner Barney Visser and that the team really wants me as its driver. Everything else is important, but I really felt like Furniture Row Racing genuinely wanted me to drive for them.
Truex began looking for another ride after Michael Waltrip Racing lost NAPA as a sponsor due to their attempts to manipulate the Chase.
Truex replace Kurt Busch, who is leaving the team to drive for Stewart Haas Racing.
