BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) ? Martin Truex Jr. says his return to his championship-winning race team is dependent on sponsorship.

Truex is locked in a fierce battle with former NASCAR champions Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick in his push to defend last year’s Cup Series title. His Furniture Row Racing team is in the mix even though the future of the No. 78 team is in flux.

Furniture Row is seeking a primary sponsor for next year, and does not have contracts with Truex or manufacturer Toyota.

Truex said Friday he hopes to have a better idea on what his future holds in the next few weeks. But he stressed his situation with Colorado-based Furniture Row is heavily dependent on owner Barney Visser finding a primary sponsor.
