Truex needs sponsor to keep team intact

With Furniture Row still searching for cash, Truex is starting to find himself in the rumor mill with several teams searching for drivers.

"There's just no margin for error, and that's why you've gotta have speed in your vehicle so you can overcome a lot of things", said Logano, who is sixth in the driver standings. He believes that could change Saturday night.

Add Martin Truex Jr.to a list of drivers who are uncertain about whether or not they have a ride for the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Combined with Bass Pro Shops and a few other sponsored races, Truex's auto has been fully sponsored without Furniture Row putting sponsor money into it in 2018. That represents his lowest qualifying position since he started 36th on July 1 at Chicagoland, where he went on to finish fourth.

Larson turned a lap at 127.792 miles per hour Friday in qualifying at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"Right now, we need sponsorship", Truex said of Furniture Row Racing.

"That's hard to put a number on", Truex said at Bristol Motor Speedway. It's hard to say, is there a 50 percent chance we get that in a couple weeks or a 100 percent chance or two percent, I don't know. Or is there 2 percent? "I don't know. I can tell you everything really is based upon that". "I hit the No. 47 (AJ Allmendinger) before my spotter called it I had run into the back of the No. 47, but then I got checked-up enough to pull down out line and just kept getting shoved into cars".

Truex is locked in a fierce battle with former champions Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick in his push to defend last year's Cup Series title.

Now his name is suddenly mentioned as a potential replacement for Kurt Busch at Stewart-Haas Racing, where he would be Harvick's teammate, or a myriad of other possibilities.

"The commitments people made to us are through the end of the season and so no matter what happens, this is a professional sport and we need to hold up our end of the deal and the guys all understand that. It's something we all want to keep going and just need a little bit of time to let the dominoes fall into place and see if we can keep it going and if not, I have to figure it out from there".
