Martin Truex Jr. Returns to Bristol Dirt

Martin Truex Jr. Returns to Bristol Dirt

Looking for Redemption


Martin Truex Jr. Returns to Bristol Dirt



Last season’s Food City Dirt Race at the Bristol Motor Speedway Dirt track was dominated by Joe Gibbs Racing’s  Martin Truex Jr. who led a race-high 126 of the schedule 253 laps (49.8%). The New Jersey native started fifth and won the first stage but ultimately fell to 19th at the finish. Now, still winless in 2022, Truex and the No. 19 team return to Bristol looking for some redemption on the dirt.


Last season, Truex competed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway Dirt taking the win, his first in the series. With the win, Truex became the 36th of the 39 drivers all-time to win at least one race in all three of NASCAR’s national series.


Truex is still looking for his first win of the season. Through eight races, he has accumulated one top five and four top 10s.
