NSCS: Is It Time For A Break through For Martin Truex Jr.?

FORT WORTH, Texas — What a difference a year makes.

Also don't forget they are a single-car...

Tony Stewart has been heard using some particularly salty language as of late. Running poorly two weekends ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Stewart went off over his team's in-car radio about the Sprint Cup Series' 2015 rules package. "I hate this (expletive) rules package. It's a bunch of (expletive) (expletive)," the clearly frustrated driver said. The latest object of the three...
