BRISTOL, Tenn. (April 13, 2018) – Martin Truex Jr. will start 26th in Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Truex’s No. 78 Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota ran a lap of 15.265 seconds at 125.765 mph in the first round of qualifying Friday on the half-mile high-banked oval. Truex was 10th-fastest in practice earlier in the day with a lap of 14.883 at 128.926 though the performance for most competitors slowed in the late afternoon qualifying session.

The Furniture Row Racing driver will line up on the outside of Row 13 for the 500-lap race. Truex had started in the top 6 in the past five races, including three-in-a-row from the pole (Phoenix, Fontana, Martinsville).
