DENVER -- The "Great American Race," the Daytona 500 kicks off the new NASCAR season in less than two weeks.
This year, Denver-based Furniture Row Racing has a new face behind the wheel of the number 78 Chevrolet.
There is only one NASCAR team based west of the Mississippi River and it's right here in Denver.
Kami Carmann spoke with new driver Martin Truex Jr. and he certainly never thought he'd be working in Denver. Watch her video report above.
You can watch the Daytona 500 on FOX31 Denver Sunday, February 23 beginning at 10 a.m. MST.
