The declaration that Martin Truex Jr. made on Friday night was one of the biggest shockers in recent memory. A breakup has occurred between the NASCAR driver and his longtime partner Sherry Pollex. They seem to have settled this amicably after being in a relationship for over 20 years.
Both Martin Truex Jr. and Pollex became regulars at races over the years. There has been more than enough mutual support between the two of them. Throughout their time together, the exes did some volunteer and charity work together. In 2005, when the two finally crossed paths, it was instant love. See Truex’s Instagram story for his thoughts on the breakup.
To all my friends and supporters… To put it simply, Sherry and I have decided to go our separate ways. Moving ahead, I plan to maintain my support for Sherry. Given that we won’t be making any additional statements on this topic, I urge that you please respect our privacy. You’re very welcome, Martin.

Martin Truex Jr. Hopes to Make Playoffs in 2023
Martin Truex Jr. won the most heartbreak award from the previous season. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver missed the playoffs by a razor-thin margin of three points to Ryan Blaney. Truex Jr. was pondering a lot of things when Austin Dillon won at Daytona and secured his playoff berth.
Martin Truex Jr. posted on his IG story: “To my fans and partners… Sherry and I have made the decision to end our relationship. I will continue supporting Sherry moving forward. I would ask that you respect our privacy as there will be no further comment about this matter.”

The seasoned driver, at age 42, is a skilled operator. As far as I can tell, he and his team had some difficulties throughout the first season with the Next Gen vehicle. Sometimes it was just lousy luck. Indeed, there were instances when other drivers were simply superior. It led to a winless season and a 17th-place overall finish, which was not very satisfying.
Martin Truex Jr.’s goal in the upcoming 2023 season is to win a race. For many senior motorists, this is a pivotal year. Is Truex competitive with this new car? Personally, I believe he does. It remains to be seen if that is indeed the case.
