Tomorrow (we'll see if the postponed Pocono race affects this) Furniture Row Racing will hold a press conference, presumably to announce the addition of a second car next year.

According to Konner Metz at Sports Blog, the rumor is that Martin Truex, Jr will be joined next year by Michigan's own Erik Jones, who won the truck championship last year and has been tearing up the Xfinity races this year. In fact, Erik won the Xfinity race at Iowa this past weekend. Erik is part of the Joe Gibbs Racing stable now, but Furniture Row has an "alliance" with JGR, And JGR has no room to add another driver, so.....

Here's the story.
