Martin may drive a 'yota but he's a good guy and has paid his dues. He deserves this win. Hard racer. Clean racer.
Maybe Furniture Row racing can be pulled back into the Chevy fold some day.

Why is Truex such a hero? I guess he plays a good PR game, and everyone likes an "underdog" to do well. The Gibbs bunch also does well at that game, and he's part of that. May as well be one of them. They even make the shrub look human some days, but last week wasn't a high point for his human qualities.

On the other hand there are those that hate Hendrick drivers, they have an unfair advantage and more money. Yeah sure. Hasn't Earnhardt Jr. paid a bunch of dues? Or does he owe more dues because of heritage?

I guess all this is what makes people fans.
