Joe Gibbs Racing and Martin Truex Jr. have reached an extended agreement, which will see the 40-year-old remain the driver of the No. 19 Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Cup Series.
“Extending Martin’s agreement has been a big priority for us this off season,” said Joe Gibbs, Owner of Joe Gibbs Racing. “Martin brings so much to our organization. Obviously he’s talented and shown he can win at any racetrack but his insights also helps to make all our teams better.”
The Mayetta, New Jersey-native joined Joe Gibbs Racing to drive the No. 19 Toyota Camry at the beginning of the 2019 season, scoring eight wins, 29 top-fives and 47 top-10s in two seasons with the team.
In the last six seasons, Truex has established himself as a constant championship threat, scoring four Championship 4 berths, including three consecutive top-two finishes in final point standings from 2017 to 2019.
“I’m happy to get this news out there so we can focus on this season and the future with Joe Gibbs Racing,” said Truex. “This is where I wanted to be and to continue building on the success we have had together the past two years. I appreciate Coach, my team, everyone at JGR and all of our partners like Bass Pro Shops, Auto-Owners Insurance, Reser’s Fine Foods, Stanley Black & Decker and Toyota for making this possible and I look forward to continuing those relationships as we move forward.”
Consistent with other contract agreements, Joe Gibbs Racing and Martin Truex Jr. will not be disclosing the terms of the extension.
