The NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma had some dramatic moments that featured 2017 champion Martin Truex Jr. The Joe Gibbs Racing racer was involved in multiple incidents including a pile-up that caused by Josh Berry on lap-38 of the race. Hence it was no surprise to see the veteran being livid on team radio.

Following an incident on turn 3, the No:19 Toyota Camry driver went a little overboard with his rant on team radio after being involved in the incident he didn’t want any part in. Martin Truex Jr. used the r-word in his rant, which is considered as an offensive term.

Turn 3 is such a stack up, you get run into by these f***ing r*****s.
Martin Truex Jr. said as reported by Jordan Bianchi.

Using the R-word might lead NASCAR sending the future Hall of Famer for sensitivity training. In 2020 his former teammate and two times Cup champion Kyle Busch was given sensitivity training for the using the r-word. It would be interesting to see how NASCAR will approach the rant by the most senior figure on the track in the current grid.

Martin Truex Jr. is devastated by the Sonoma result

Coming into the race at Sonoma, Martin Truex Jr. had the best odds of winning and from the start of the race he proved them right by giving a string fight. But just like it was with Ryan Blaney last race at Gateway, his change came up short after running out of fuel on the penultimate lap. He is pretty upset how everything played out.

Yes, it stinks. We worked hard all day to have a good finish and clearly ran out of gas in the last corner so I don't know...One of them years, you know.
Martin Truex Jr. said.

The veteran has missed out on another solid shot at wining a race, ending his winless streak and secure a spot in the playoff. But it was just a miscalculation over fuel load that cost him the win and not the cars performance. Hence, he would be hoping to return to victory lane soon.
