Truex Jr.’s crew chief Pearn leaves NASCAR

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

At one point, every man has to chose his family over a job, especially if it is a job that causes you to be on the road almost every weekend. Cole Pearn has decided to leave NASCAR and pursue other opportunities.

This is huge news, as Martin Truex Jr. and Pearn have been a dominate due over the last five seasons. Since Pearn became a crew chief in 2016, the duo had 24 wins, including the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series Championship.

“I cannot say enough good things about Cole and what he has meant for my career,” Truex Jr. said in a release provided by the team. “I appreciate his hard work and dedication to our race team over the past six years going back to when he was my engineer at Furniture Row. Our friendship is what matters most to me and I’m happy that he’s doing what’s best for him and his family.”

Last off-season, Truex Jr. and Pearn joined Joe Gibbs Racing. Before being teammates at JGR, they worked together at the now defunct Furniture Row Racing.

This season, Truex Jr. finished second at the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida in November. Their JGR teammate Kyle Busch ended up winning the Championship, as he won the race.
