Martin Truex Jr. will compete in the second Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race with a pair of new tire changers.
Front tire changer Dave Collins suffered an ankle injury during pit practice on Wednesday and will sit out Sunday’s Sylvania 300. Josh Franko, a backup tire changer for Michael Waltrip Racing, will replace Collins.
Adam Hartman, who also has been a backup at MWR, will replace Kyle Turner as rear tire changer. Denver, Colo.-based Furniture Row Racing, which fields the cars for Truex, runs its pit road crew out of the MWR shop.
