Truex Says 1.5-Mile Program Off Compared To Last Year

HOMESTEAD, Fla – The 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season went as perfectly as it could on the race track for Martin Truex Jr. He won the season championship and reached victory lane eight times last season alone.

Busch Having Career Year, Can He Capitalize By Winning Championship Sunday?

I kind of feels like Kyle Busch is getting shuffled out of the championship discussion for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Martin Truex Jr. is the defending champion and the overall story of the weekend with Furniture Row Racing shutting down upon the completion of Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 (2:30 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

It wasn’t until 2010 that they started all 36 races. One year later they got their first top 10 finish. In 2006, they attempted to qualifying for all 36 races. They were a DNQ in 17 of them. Same for 2007 too.…
