A year ago, Martin Truex Jr. finished last in the Daytona 500. Last weekend, he finished eighth – the culmination of a successful Speedweeks for his Furniture Row Racing team. His No. 78 Chevrolet was fast throughout Speedweeks, running up front with teams from Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing and Team Penske. Truex was second in the nonpoints Sprint Unlimited race (and led the most laps) and fifth in his Daytona 500 qualifying race.
