His last win was at Pocano in June of 2015. Almost every race so far this season, Truex Jr. has had a dominating car, but could not pull off the win…until Sunday.
Even with all of these incredible stats, the victory was made all the more emotional to NASCAR drivers and fans to see Truex Jr. and his girlfriend Sherry Pollex celebrating together.

The entire NASCAR community of drivers, crew members, owners and fans have supported Pollex in her recovery, making this win emotional for everyone.
