Car number 77 has started 876 races and has 1 win, 4 poles, 29 top 5s, 104 top 10s, and 269 DNFs in the NASCAR Cup Series.
- In 2016, Furniture Row Racing announced that it would field 2 cars for 2017 with young Erik Jones behind the wheel of the #77 Toyota. Erik Jones, a Joe Gibbs Racing development driver, is seen as one of the rising stars of the sport, but with JGR already fielding 4 full time cars there was no room for Jones to compete at the Cup level with that team. However, the recent technical alliance between JGR and FRR makes the #78 & new #77 car psuedo-teammates with the JGR stable.
Erik Jones made 36 starts in the number earning 5 top-5 finishes and a pole at Bristol. Unfortunately, Jones did not find victory lane in 2017. Next year, Jones will replace Matt Kenseth as the driver of the JGR #20 car, and Furniture Row Racing will cease operation of car #77.
- Jasper Motorsports was formed in 1991, but began running #77 in 1995 with Bobby Hillin Jr. running most of the races in the 1995 & 1996 seasons. After 10 starts in the 1997 season, Hillin was replaced. He has 67 total starts in the number.
- In 1997, Hillin was replaced by Robert Pressley who has the most starts in #77 with 133.
In 1998 he had a then-career-best finish of 3rd at Texas. 1999 was a tumultulous year for the team, struggling with qualifying and finishing 39th in points. For the 2000 season, Ryan Pemberton came aboard as crew chief and made a huge difference as Pressley finished 25th in points the next two years, finishing 2nd at the 2001 Tropicana 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.
- In 2002, Dave Blaney took the helm of the #77 Jasper Motorsports car. Earning 9 top-10s in 2 years, Blaney failed to gain consistency in the #77 car. His best finish would be a 3rd place at Darlington in 2003, behind one of the most spectacular finishes in NASCAR history. Blaney would be released following the 2003 season. In 2014, Dave Blaney started 4 races in #77 for Randy Humphrey Racing. Blaney has a total of 76 starts in the number.
- For the 2004 season Roger Penske bought a majority stake in Jasper Motorports. The team would switch to Dodge as a manufacturer, Kodak came on as a sponsor, and Truck series star Brendan Gaughan was named as the driver. Gaughan earned 4 top-10s in his rookie year, finishing 28th in points. His best run came when he lead 7 laps and finishing 4th at Talladega. These 36 races would be Gaughan’s only full year in the Cup series, as he was unexpectedly replaced for the 2005 season.
- In 2005 Travis Kvapil was named as the driver of the #77, however Kvapil struggled. He finished the year 33rd in points with only 2 top-10 finishes in 36 races. The #77 car would not be fielded in 2006 and the owner’s points would be sold to Bill Davis Racing.
- The #77 team was revived for the 2008 season, now fully owned by Team Penske. Indy-car star Sam Hornish Jr. would be named the driver with Mobil 1 acting as primary sponsor.
Hornish undoubtably struggled during his time in the #77, earning 8 top-10 finishes in his 3 years. After 106 starts Mobil 1 left Penske for Stewart-Haas racing, essentially ending the #77 team. Hornish would be reassigned to the XFINITY series for Penske, where he would win 3 races. The highlight of his tenure in the #77 came at the 2009 Sprint All Star Race, where he won the Sprint Showdown.
- Charlie Roberts started #77 a total of 67 times from 1971-1974. During this time he earned 3 top-10 finishes.
- Greg Sacks started 13 races in #77 in 1985 and ran most of the full season in 1994 for a combined 44 races.
- Ken Ragan started 38 of his 50 career races in #77 from 1983-1990. At Darlington in 2015 Ken’s son David Regan ran a ‘throwback’ pain scheme to resemble Ken’s #77.
- Joe Lee Johnson was an early NASCAR star, winning the 1959 NASCAR Convertible Series Championship in his #77 car. He also started 19 of his 55 career Grand National (Sprint Cup) races in #77. He won his first Grand National race at Nashville Fairgrounds in 1959 driving the #77.
