Martin Truex Jr.: The Stealth Contender

  Sports fans love an underdog. In this year's Chase, among a field that includes a reigning champion, former champions and perennial champions stands a Rocky Balboa. His name?

While he earned a 2007 win at Dover for DEI, Truex had the misfortune of joining the team while it was on a downhill slide. The New Jersey native came on board at Michael Waltrip Racing, as a big part of their upswing, picked up a big win at Sonoma, and just when it all appeared to be coming together, "Spinga ...
