According to the site, PitTalks.com, the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team of driver Martin Truex Jr. has made a change to its pit crew in the wake of Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway.

Chris Taylor has been named as a replacement for Brian Eastlund as the front tire changer on the team, effective with the Richmond race. The change is to be in effect for the foreseeable future.

Taylor has worked as a tire changer at both Chip Ganassi Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing. Most recently, he has been a back-up at JGR. Before going on back-up status at Gibbs, he was a rear tire changer on the No. 20 team of Matt Kenseth.
