The Latest: NASCAR says ‘everything in play’ as changes loom
HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — The Latest on NASCAR’s Cup Series championship (all times local):
Furniture Row Racing gathered at Martin Truex Jr.’s car for one final group photo moments before the start of NASCAR’s season finale.
Furniture Row is closing after the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The No. 78 is trying to win its second consecutive title and its pre-race ceremonies were a mixed emotion of excitement and sadness. Most of the crew members had family and children with them at the car, and most were wearing either the standard black Furniture Row shirts or something to honor Truex.
The group photo was delayed as the team waited for owner Barney Visser to get to the car.
Visser is shutting down the team because it lost its primary sponsor, and Visser said it’s too expensive to fund a competitive car without assistance.
