Truex in tight NASCAR chase for start of round of 8 in Texas

Martin Truex Jr. keeps in mind the hours of monotony last October viewing tv and the rain in Texas, then coming so near another champion opportunity when that playoff race last fall lastly ended 3 days after it started. The projection is far better this time, both weather-wise and for Truex’s playoff push, though things are tight and there are some modifications in Texas. Rather of its standard slot as the middle race in the round of 8, Texas on Sunday starts the round with Kansas and Martinsville to follow.
