Truex’s Charge Halted After Contact with Infamous Darlington Wall

DARLINGTON, S.C. (April 12, 2014) – Martin Truex Jr. was cruising in the top-15 in Saturday night’s Sprint Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway. But on Lap 266 of 374 he made contact with the infamous Darlington wall, which resulted in an unscheduled green-flag pit stop for quick repairs and four fresh tires.

The incident put Truex three laps down and when the checkered flag waved he was credited with a 27th-place finish.

“I thought we had a shot of having a breakthrough race tonight, but it just didn’t turn out that way,” said a disappointed Truex. “The pit crew was on top of their game again and if things worked in our favor I felt we had a potential top-10 car. But the Darlington wall that has slapped so many cars over the years got us tonight.”
