Martin Truex Jr. comes up just short of fairytale finish with Furniture Row

first_imgMartin Truex Jr. came up just short of a fairytale finish.Truex, moving to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2019, tried to go out on a high note with Furniture Row Racing, which is closing shop after the 2018 season that wrapped up Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. “Everything about it has been great,” Truex said on NBC. “Everything about it has been the best thing I’ve ever been a part of. You know, I feel good about my future and going to a great place, and I know we’ll have more success. But it’s going to be different.  You know, it’s going to be a different team, a different cast of characters, and these guys were a special group, and I’m very thankful to get to work with all of them. … It’s just been a good ride. It’s been a good run, and I hate to see it come to an end, but everything ends somewhere.”In his time with Furniture Row, Truex Jr. won 17 Cup Series races, eight in his championship season last year. He had 56 top-fives racing the No. 78 Toyota, counting Sunday’s runner-up finish.He’ll drive the No. 19 Toyota for JGR next season, with crew chief Cole Pearn joining him on the new team. NASCAR results at Homestead: Joey Logano wins race, claims first series championship He finished second to Joey Logano, who passed Truex with 12 laps to go to win the Ford EcoBoost 400 and the Cup Series season championship.So instead of defending his 2017 title, Truex was left to thank his team for a lot of memories over the past five years. Related News So Sunday was for reflection, as Truex reacted not only to the second-place finish but also his five-year run with Furniture Row during which he became a NASCAR star.“I’m gonna miss these guys,” Truex said of his Furniture Row teammates. “I wish we could have won it. We had it. We were able to get the lead, I was just slow for 15 laps. I just couldn’t do it. I don’t know what else I could have done. He passed me so fast I didn’t even have a chance to do anything.“Not the way we wanted to go out, but hell of an effort. Been the best time of my life. I don’t know what else to say.”last_img read more

ASA NOPA Signal Strong Push on TPP in Lame Duck

first_imgWith the release of a new document on the benefits to soybean farmers, processors, and exporters from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) this week, the American Soybean Association (ASA) and the National Oilseed Processors Association (NOPA) put Congress on notice that the groups will continue their push to approve TPP in the lame duck session following the presidential election.Designed for delivery to congressional staff, the document contains detailed infographics showing the ways in which the TPP benefits soybean farmers, as well as the processors and exporters that take U.S. soybeans to markets around the world.“The TPP has huge potential benefits for soybean farmers,” said ASA President and Greenwood, Del., farmer Richard Wilkins. “First, we achieve better market access for soybeans and soy products in 11 partner nations. More impactfully, though, we will increase sales of soybean meal for animal feed as a result of a dramatic increase in the sale of poultry, pork, beef, dairy and eggs to TPP markets. There is too much promise in the TPP for us to give up.”Prospects for passage of TPP are dim, with both presidential candidates opposed, and a crowded lame duck congressional calendar. ASA and NOPA aren’t giving up, however.“NOPA strongly supports the Trans-Pacific Partnership because the Asia-Pacific region—comprising almost 40 percent of global GDP—is where the future growth markets will be for U.S. soybean farmers, processors and exporters, as well as domestic meat and poultry producers, which are our industry’s largest customers.” said Tom Hammer, NOPA President. “Unfortunately, the benefits of a TPP that has the potential to become the largest U.S. regional trade agreement in history, cannot be realized if it is not approved by the United States Congress.”Together, the organizations are confident that this new document depicting the strong benefits to soybean farmers, processors, and exporters helps to provide some weight to the ongoing National debate on the positive trade value of the TPP.“We’ve heard repeatedly from lawmakers that what they need to not only support the agreement but also to help grow that support is hard data on the benefits of TPP for their constituents,” added Wilkins. “This document does exactly that.”last_img read more
