Podcast: Martin Truex Jr. Talks Darlington Dominance, Low Downforce Package

A huge week on the podcast, as Darlington winner Martin Truex Jr. stops by to discuss his dominant performance, leading 248 of 293 laps at The Track Too Tough To Tame. Truex and Davey Segal chat about his admiration for the lower downforce package, why he thrives with it and whether or not he’s worried about peaking too soon this season. The two also discuss his relationship with crew chief James Small and how long it took for Truex to understand his Australian accent, why his girlfriend Sherry Pollex hates his beard, a nickname he hates being called and his thoughts heading to Dover this weekend, a place he’s won three times at and finished second each of his past three trips.

Amy Henderson also joins Davey to dissect Truex’s dominance further, including why it should be appreciated rather than scrutinized. The duo also looks ahead to Dover this weekend and makes some picks ahead of the 1/3 mark of the 2021 season.
