Martin Truex Jr. has agreed to drive the No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet in 2014.

Sources say the parties came to terms on Wednesday night. A formal announcement is expected next Tuesday.

In his eighth year as a full-time Sprint Cup driver, Truex has spent the past four seasons running the No. 56 NAPA Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing. He is a two-time Nationwide Series champion.

However, MWR's manipulation of the outcome of the Sept. 7 race at Richmond International Raceway and subsequent sanctions from NASCAR resulted in NAPA's decision to part ways with the organization at the end of the season. MWR announced Monday that the company would move on with only two full-time teams for 2014.

Truex, 33, has two career Sprint Cup wins - the most recent coming June 23 at Sonoma Raceway. He has qualified for the Chase twice and is 16th in this season's points standings.
