DENVER (CBS4) – Martin Truex, Jr. — come on down — you get to drive the “78” car.

Colorado’s Furniture Row Racing has hired Truex after Kurt Busch bolted to another team.

Truex grew up in New Jersey where not many NASCAR drivers are from.

Furniture Row made it to the “Chase” last year and got a trophy to prove it. They’re expecting big things out of Truex.

“To be a great driver you can’t keep hopping around to different teams, so I expect to be here long term,” Truex said. “Obviously it has to go as well as we both want it to. I know (co-owner Barney Visser) and the guys here are ultra-dedicated to getting to where I want to go, so hopefully we can make that happen.”

Truex is a two-time Nationwide Series champion. He won the title in 2004 and 2005.
