Not only did Martin Truex Jr. lose his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup this past weekend, but he also found out his wrist injury is more serious than first believed.
“I broke my wrist at Bristol. I found out this week that I have two broken bones in there, not just one, which makes things even more difficult,” said Truex said.
Since breaking his wrist nearly three weeks ago, Truex has been utilizing a cast on his wrist fitted to allow him to drive. Although difficult, he had finished third and seventh in the past two races.
“We don’t have a time machine, we can’t turn back the clocks and change things, we can’t do things over – we have to live with what we have,” he said. “We’re
17th in points and we have to try to rebound and make the best of our season we can make of it.”
“Kyle Busch Motorsports, as well as two of our other teams, ThorSport and Red Horse Racing, they’ve all helped build the first prototype race truck,” said Les Unger, national motorsports manager for Toyota.
The Tundra, as well as the other manufacturer models in 2014, will no longer utilize braces on the front splitter.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to rally around Kyle throughout the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, as well as celebrate a potential championship than by giving away 1 million free bags of M&M’s,” said Roy Benin, chief consumer officer at Mars Chocolate North America.
