Auto-Owners Insurance, key sponsor of Joe Gibbs Racing and driver. Martin Truex Jr. has signed a contract extension with the team since 2016, JGR said on Thursday.
Auto-Owners will continue to be the main sponsor of Truex and the No. 19 Toyota JGR in 2023. The length of the extension was not disclosed.
Truex considered retiring at the end of that year but later announced that he would return to Team Gibbs for the 2023 season.
“Auto-Owners has been a great partner of ours for a long time,” Truex said in a statement. “They are always 100 percent supportive of everything we do, whether on the track or with our foundation. They are doing so many great things for us and I really appreciate their partnership and am excited to see it continue.”
Truex has no wins this season but sits 16th in the Cup Series playoff standings with four races remaining in the regular season.
