#1 Martin Treux Jr goes to JGR
Going back to the vacated #19 Toyota, it looks like that will be become Martin Truex Jr’s ride for the forseeable future and could help give him the competitive edge he needs to win another championship. Of course there are some that believe SHR racing will snatch up Martin Truex Jr, more on that later, its probably not going to be enough to get him to leave Toyota.
In fact, Toyota has won two of the last four championships under the new playoff systems and could very easily keep that trend going if they keep Truex Jr. Compare that to the fact that a Ford hasn’t won a championship under the new playoff rules and you can see why the choice would be relatively easy to make.
