With Martin Truex Jr retiring, it’s time to look back on one of the most inspiring careers we’ve ever seen in NASCAR. Elly Productions is going to take us through the amazing story of how the cheater became a champion.

  • One of the most important chapters of Martin Truex Jr.’s career is that infamous race in Richmond in 2013. It was a full-blown act of race manipulation that would be forever known as “Spingate.” Do you think Martin Truex Jr. would be the driver that he is today if he didn’t have to overcome that adversity?
  • In the fallout of “Spingate,” NASCAR handed down the hardest penalty they’ve ever given for race manipulation, which was why Martin Truex Jr ended up in Furniture Row Racing. Do you think NASCAR’s penalty was too harsh?
  • After MWR, Martin Truex Jr. was forced to join the underdog team west of the Mississippi Furniture Row Racing. This team eventually led him to become a NASCAR champion. Do you think if he had been signed to a different team, he would still have a championship?

Is Martin Truex Jr a first-ballot Hall of Famer? Where does he rank on your list of greatest of all time? Let Elly Productions know all your thoughts and questions in the comment section.
