Proud of: Talking up Martin True JR as the sports new rock star.
Maybe it was how the whole Cinderella story played out or maybe it was just how amazing it was to see Martin Truex Jr win week after week, but NASCAR fans are sold on him right now. In fact, the constant callbacks to his time at DEI and Dale Jr’s constant praise of him, has only made him more of a commodity to fans and NASCAR capitalized on it in the best way.
Of course it was probably easy to do since he won the whole damn thing for the first time in career, but NASCAR did a fantastic job of talking him up as the dominant champion. It almost was almost like watching a title holder defend his title week after week and contentiously look dominant while doing it.
NASCAR made the right choose to put Martin Truex Jr in the same ballpark as Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and other top stars the sport had come to love and along with the other young stars rising up the ranks, they will certainly be fun to watch!
