Furniture Row Racing going for Cup title after year of success, tragedy

This NASCAR season, Furniture Row Racing and Martin Truex Jr. have shown they are a combination of outsiders, underdogs, and survivors.

It’s been a historic year for Furniture Row Racing, the Cup team that has its base of operations in an old water bed store in Denver, Colorado.

With Martin Truex Jr. piloting the No. 78 Toyota, they won a team record seven races and a series record six races on 1.5-mile tracks. Combined with a dominating performance under the new stage racing format, Truex has put the team in its second Championship 4 in three years.

But it’s also been a season of perseverance and tragedy.

NBC Sports’ Nate Ryan narrates the above video essay on the story of Furniture Row Racing’s 2017 season.
