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.
