Michael Waltrip Racing | Pit crew fired

Michael Waltrip Racing driver Martin Truex Jr. fired his pit crew after they messed up his final stop at Richmond International Raceway last weekend. "We had a very good car at Richmond. It was the best car I've ever had there," Truex said. "We've run well and have very little to show for it. But in Richmond, it was hard not to say anything when our night ended the way it did."

The team will employ new tire carriers and tire changers for the front and rear end of Truex's No. 56 Toyota.
