It takes guts and determination to win the @DAYTONA #Clash. You gotta be tough. That's no problem for @MartinTruex_Jr, who is #DEWALTTough. The No. 19 is tackling Tuesday's tricky #NASCAR road course in @DEWALTtough yellow and black. Let's go #TeamDEWALT! pic.twitter.com/nNpMxGg8pu

Truex has never won the Busch Clash, however this year things are a little different than usual. Since 1980, the Clash has been run on the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway oval, this season it will take place on the 3.61-mile Daytona Road Course, which suits Truex’s style perfectly. Truex is a four-time winner in NASCAR Cup Series points paying events through his career.
