Furniture Row Racing
Furniture Row Racing is a single-car team that is based out of Colorado. Owned and sponsored by the American furniture store chain, Furniture Row. The team made its debut in the Busch Series at Nashville with Jerry Robertson behind the wheels of the their Chevy Impala. The team only made two Nextel Cup appearances in that season and Kenny Wallace drove the Car at Dover and Phoenix.
Wallace was to continue as their primary driver for the first five races of the 2006 season while Robertson would fill out the remaining races in the year. Things started badly as Wallace couldn’t qualify for the Season Opener at Daytona. He managed to achieve that in the next two races but a 41st and 38th place finish was not enough to make the top-35 rankings and so, the team ran with a number of drivers for the remaining part of the year. Jimmy Spencer and Travis Kvapil drove the cars at a few select events.
The team got together with PPI Motorsports and shared equipment & resources throughout the season. Kenny Wallace was to be their full-time driver for 2007 and in August, the same year, was released to accommodate new drivers Scott Wimmer and Sterling Marlin. Both drivers failed to qualify for the team and were promptly replaced by Joe Nemechek. Towards the end of the season, Nemechek signed a three year deal with Furniture Row Racing. Joe Nemechek came as a white knight and gave the team their first pole position as well as their best finish ever of 18th place. Furniture Row Racing are still at a nascent stage and will be looking to learn and grow more as time goes by.
