Martin Truex Jr. will continue to race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series for Furniture Row Racing in 2016. He won’t be doing it in a Chevy however. The team announced Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway prior to the Sylvania 300 that the Denver Colorado based team will switch to Toyota’s next season. The team will also enter into a technical alliance with Joe Gibbs Racing.
“As we continue our quest to be a contender for this year’s Sprint Cup championship, it’s hard not to feel the excitement and enthusiasm of becoming an integral partner with Toyota next season,” said Joe Garone, president and general manager of Furniture Row Racing who has been with the team since its inception in 2005. “The added resources and technical support that Toyota will provide, along with having a technical alliance with Joe Gibbs Racing, definitely increases the growth potential for our team.”
