Truex seeking bigger things after Charlotte romp

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. believes big things are ahead, even bigger than his record run at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Truex ruled the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night, leading 588 of 600 miles to set a Sprint Cup record. It was his fourth career victory and first in nearly a year, although he's come close in several other races.

Truex thinks his single-car, west of the Mississippi program has the potential to win championships, like the very best teams in NASCAR.
