The outsiders from Colorado running only one team in Cup. Facing adversity after adversity with death and illness and struggles weighing, it seemed, on every member. Despite that, it was a career year for Truex, Jr. The focus and determination were pretty amazing to see.
Just watch the video that NBC Sports posted to Facebook and enjoy the huge release of emotion from Truex, Jr. and his team. After all they’ve been through this year, this celebration is well-deserved.
