Transcripts: Martin Truex Jr. – Pit Road Interview – 04.28.24

Q. Martin, you come home in third place. Looked like you had the dominant car. We saw the damage to the nose. Was that the difference at the end?

MARTIN TRUEX JR.: I mean, at the end, yeah. In the middle of the race losing the lead was the difference maker. Just lost the lead to the 5 there. Once I got close to him, tried to start moving around, I got a little too tight. He was backing up. It just didn’t quite have what I needed to get by him. They all pounced on us and we lost control of the race. Then I got the nose damage.

Feel like we let one get away today. Had a really strong Bass Pro Camry. You can’t lose control of these races mid stage like that. The track changes, you get behind.

Man, just stinks. Overall a good day. Just keep working on it.
