There's been a bit of a changing of the guard in the NASCAR Sprint Cup this season, with three drivers - Regan Smith, David Ragan and Paul Menard - taking their maiden series wins.
But while Ragan and Menard drive for the Roush Fenway and Richard Childress 'superteams', Smith's breakthrough came behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Impala prepared by one of the smallest outfits in the series - Furniture Row Racing.
