With one race remaining behind the wheel of the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota, Martin Truex Jr. will attempt to become the 16th driver in history to win multiple NASCAR Cup Series championships. The 38-year-old driver claimed his first season title last year with a dramatic win in the final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Sunday’s finale at the 1.5-mile Homestead track will not only be the final race of the season, but also the final race for the Denver, Colo.-based Furniture Row Racing. The team announced in early September that it will cease operations after the 2018 season.
