CORNELIUS, N.C. — It’s a busy and important time in the life of No. 56 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota driver Martin Truex Jr. – and that’s just describing the time before he arrives at Chicagoland Speedway for Sunday’s first of 10 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup races.
Truex joined the other 11 Chase drivers this week fanning across America to promote the sport in the ‘Chase Across America’ national media tour. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver’s schedule includes an early Tuesday flight to Kansas to spend several hours with Sprint executives, members of the National Guard and local media before traveling to downtown Chicago. Truex and all Chase drivers will appear Wednesday at the House of Blues in the annual Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Media Day. After an 11:15 a.m.– 1 p.m. media availability, he’ll participate in ‘NASCAR Contenders Live’- the ultimate question-and-answer fan event staged by Toyota and Sprint. He’ll end the night at a NASCAR dinner.
