Joe Gibbs Racing announced on Thursday that Auto-Owners Insurance has signed an extension to continue serving as a primary sponsor of the No. 19 Toyota Camry driven by Martin Truex Jr.

“I’m so thankful for Auto-Owners and what they have meant to me both on and off the track,” said Truex. “Everyone at Auto-Owners has treated me like family since day one and they continue to be a huge part of what we do at JGR and also with the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation. We’ve been able to do a lot of cool things with Auto-Owners over the years – whether it be the fundraisers or showcasing our foundation on the car and this year, they helped me check the Truck Series win off my bucket list. I’m excited to keep that going and hopefully bring them a lot more wins in the future.”

A list of the races that Auto-Owners will appear on Truex’s car will be announced later.

“Since we signed on in 2016, Martin has been an outstanding driver on the track, a tireless advocate for his foundation and a fantastic ambassador for the Auto-Owners brand,” said Jeff Tagsold, Auto-Owners Insurance Chairman and CEO. “His hard work, character and integrity exemplify our core values and we couldn’t be more proud to continue our partnership with him.”

Auto-Owners has been a sponsor of Truex since 2016 when he drove the No. 78 of Furniture Row. He has scored seven Cup Series wins while driving a Auto-Owners sponsored car.
