Martin Truex, Jr. wasted no time looking for a new race team for 2014.
Just days after Michael Waltrip Racing gave permission to the driver of the No. 56 to look elsewhere due to NAPA pulling its funding from the team, it looks as if Truex will drive for Furniture Row Racing next season.
According to a report from FoxSports, Truex is expected to sign his contract to replace Kurt Busch in the No. 78 Chevrolet in 2014 next Tuesday.
Busch has signed with Stewart-Haas Racing for next season.
Truex has two career Sprint Cup wins, the most recent coming earlier this season at Sonoma Raceway. He is currently 16th in this seasons points standings.
As you may recall, NAPA pulled its sponsorship due to a race-fixing scandal involving Truex’s Michael Waltrip Racing teammates. Truex was later bumped from the Chase for the Sprint Cup following the fallout.
