Truex, who is moving to Joe Gibbs Racing for the 2019 season after Furniture Row Racing closes shop, reacted to the second-place finish after emerging from the No. 78 Toyota on pit road.

“I’m gonna miss these guys,” Truex said of his Furniture Row teammates in an interview with NBC. “I wish we could have won it. We had it. We were able to get the lead, I was just slow first 15 laps. I just couldn’t do it. I don’t know what else I could have done. He passed me so fast I didn’t even have a chance to do anything.

“Not the way we wanted to go out, but hell of an effort. Been the best time of my life. I don’t know what else to say.”
