Truex Focused On Performance Over Contract

Martin Truex Jr. says that he’s not worried about contract talks with his Dale Earnhardt Inc. team yet. He’s too busy focusing on improving his performance.

Ironically, while Truex is higher in the NASCAR Sprint Cup standings this season than he was a year ago, he says that he was performing better overall then. He just struggled to turn top runs into top finishes.

This season, he’s 12th in the standings after the first five races, while he was 25th at this point in 2007.

“I feel a little bit off,” he said Friday at Martinsville Speedway. “Last year we started off slow in the finishes. We had a lot of tough luck, but we were running really good. … We were really fast straight off the grid last year. This year, we don’t quite have that speed to run in the top five yet. So that’s been a little frustrating.”

These days, just five races into the season, his thoughts are on racing, not negotiations of the contract that ends this season.(scenedaily.com)
