No. 19 Bass Pro Shops Toyota Camry News and Notes

  • TRUEX AT SONOMA: Martin Truex Jr. leads all active drivers with three NASCAR Cup Series wins at Sonoma Raceway, including the two most recent races in 2018 and 2019. Overall, he has posted four top-five finishes and five top-10s in 14 career starts at the track. His 213 laps led at Sonoma are also most amongst active drivers.

  • CHARLOTTE RECAP: Truex finished 29th in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. While running in the top 15 in the final stage, a flat left-front tire forced the No. 19 team to make an unscheduled pit stop that ultimately derailed their result.

Talk about going back to Sonoma after not racing there last year…

“Our team is definitely looking forward to going back to Sonoma. It’s a place we have a lot of confidence going to, regardless of the track layout or the aero package. We’ve been fortunate to have had some good races there the last few times and been able to get to victory lane. We’ll have our work cut out for us on Sunday, but we feel like it’s a place we should run up front and have a shot to win at.”
