Sources: Truex To Furniture Row In 2014

Multiple sources say Martin Truex, Jr. has reached agreement to drive the No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014.

Truex said early this week that while he had spoken with FRR, “there is nothing to talk about yet. They’ve done a great job this year and I’m interested in their program,” he said. “They’re definitely on my radar, but we’ll just have to see where it goes.”
Sources close to the team say an agreement was reached last night to have Truex replace Kurt Busch at the wheel of the No. 78 Chevy when Kurt Busch leaves the team to join Stewart Haas Racing next season. There is no word on whether NAPA Auto Parts might accompany Truex to Furniture Row Racing next season.
An official announcement should come early next week.


  1. Couldn't happen to a more deserving driver.

    That would be a good fit for both, also if he could bring napa big bounce.

    Come oooooooooon NAPA!

    Although, it wouldn't break my heart to see them as a tile sponsor for the Nationwide series, once they leave.

    I'm glad Truex landed on his feet sooner rather than later.
