The following is a statement from Furniture Row Racing team owner Barney Visser about today’s announcement that driver Martin Truex Jr. and crew chief Cole Pearn will join Joe Gibbs Racing after the 2018 season.
“I want to personally thank Martin and Cole for their contributions in making Furniture Row Racing a championship-caliber team. There’s no doubt in my mind that they will continue to be a winning driver/crew chief combination with Joe Gibbs Racing. They are outstanding representatives for NASCAR and I am proud to have been associated with them. But before Martin and Cole depart for a new endeavor we still have two races remaining, and hopefully we will be celebrating another championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.”
