Sherry Pollex posted photos of her and Martin Truex Jr. to Instagram from their annual Catwalk for a Cause event in September 2022. The event is a fashion fundraiser for the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation and features children with cancer walking a catwalk. “Thank you to every single person that makes this night possible. We are so grateful,” she wrote at the time. That wound up being her last social media post featuring Truex as the couple broke up a few months later.
Truex made the announcement on his Instagram Stories in January. “Sherry and I have made the decision to end our relationship,” he wrote, according to Racing News. “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 NASCAR driver added. The pair did not offer details about the reason for their split but appeared on good terms. Pollex is still listed as the Vice President of Truex’s foundation, and the “About” section still features a photo of the former couple.
As Pollex had received a cancer diagnosis herself, Truex remained supportive of his long-time girlfriend. “But cancer has never met someone like Sherry,” he told USA Today in 2014. “She will be the person that can change the way this all works for other women,” the racer said. While Pollex survived cancer, it did have disastrous consequences, such as keeping her from having children with Truex.
