Truex

Today's NASCAR Number is 205.

205: The number of NASCAR Sprint Cup starts for Martin Truex Jr. since his last (and only) victory in the series. Carl Edwards broke a 70-race drought last week at Phoenix, but there are full-time drivers in the Cup series who are enduring much longer famines. Casey Mears, who got his only Cup win at Charlotte in 2007 -- a week before Truex won at Dover -- hasn't been to Victory Lane in his last 190 starts. Mears only ran 21 races in 2010; that's why Truex's streak is longer. Jeff Burton likewise would love to end his 151-race winless skein, dating to the October race at Charlotte in 2008. Two of Burton's 21 career victories have come at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
