Video: Martin Truex Jr.’s Team Makes Massive Error, Leads to Unscheduled Pit Stop

Martin Truex Jr. had the field covered Sunday in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship-deciding event at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Truex won Stage 1, and had led 98 laps before he realized his team put the tires on the wrong side of the car during a green flag pit stop in Stage 2.

Truex would have to pit to get the correct tires on the car. As a result, Truex fell to 13th, a lap off the pace.
