Martin Truex Jr. and Sherry Pollex have officially called it quits.

The fan-favorite NASCAR pair has been together since 2005, and though were never married, became a mainstay and power couple in the sport over the last 15-plus years.

Sherry has been very public about her ongoing battle with ovarian cancer since she was first diagnosed in 2014, and they’ve worked together to raise tons of money for research through the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation and SherryStrong.

She revealed to The Athletic in July of last year that it had come back, though there haven’t been many other updates since that time.

In a now-expired story on Instagram, Martin addressed the breakup a few days ago by stating they both made the decision to end their relationship, adding that there will be no further comment on the matter:

“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.”

While it’s always disappointing to see any relationship like this end, these two were truly beloved in the NASCAR community and did so much good together, so it’s really sad to hear they’re no longer together after so many years.

Truex Jr. announced last year that he would continue driving for Joe Gibbs Racing in the 2023 season, which is set to kickoff with the Busch Light Clash at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum soon on February 5th (an unofficial points event).

Sherry’s last post on Instagram was a photo of the two of them at the Roval race in Charlotte in October, and she has yet to comment publicly on the split:
