WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- On Sunday, Colorado racing fans are gathering as the Furniture Row Racing Team says good-bye at their last race for NASCAR's Cup Series championship. Hundreds of fans were expected to attend a watch party at Dave & Buster's in Westminster.

No. 78 Martin Truex Jr. and the Furniture Row team are trying to win their second consecutive title for NASCAR's season finale.

Team owner Barney Visser made the decision to close Furniture Row Racing after 5-Hour Energy did not renew its sponsorship for 2019.

Truex plans to join the Joe Gibbs Racing Team next year.
