Truex Leads A Quartet Of Veterans In NASCAR's Title Race

HOMESTEAD (CBSMiami/AP) — The Super Bowl of the Nascar Cup Series is taking place today in South Florida.

Martin Truex Jr. is 37, a NASCAR journeyman with two second-tier titles and a favorite for the first time to win the Cup championship.

Truex and the Denver, Colorado-based Furniture Row Racing team have excelled through adversity all season: Truex’s longtime partner, Sherry Pollex, had a recurrence of ovarian cancer; a mechanic died of a heart attack the night before Truex’s win last month at Kansas; and team owner Barney Visser is sidelined in Colorado because of emergency heart surgery a week ago.

Then Truex scraped the wall during Saturday practice and his crew — with a borrowed mechanic from Toyota teammate Busch’s team — had to hammer away any damage.

He was in a violent wreck on the restart, Jimmie Johnson won a seventh title in a Chevrolet, and Edwards retired about two months later.
