Sherry Pollex Obituary, Death – Sherry Pollex, the longtime spouse of NASCAR Cup Series ace Martin Truex Jr., passed away early on Sunday morning after a battle with ovarian cancer that lasted nine years. Her age was 44. PPC Racing, which was owned by her father, Greg Pollex, was the team that Jeff Green drove to victory in the 2000 NASCAR Xfinity Series championship. His daughter’s name was Pollex.
Pollex met Truex, who had won two Xfinity titles in 2004 and 2005 before stepping up to the Cup Series in 2006, when he was working in racing public relations in the middle of the 2000s. The couple dated for 18 years, beginning in 2005, until just before the 2023 season, when they decided to end their relationship.
Both Pollex and Truex’s lives were turned upside down when they received the diagnosis of ovarian cancer in August of 2014. Her nine-year fight against the disease made her a hero in the NASCAR community, motivated Truex to win the Cup Series championship in 2017, and sparked the couple’s considerable involvement in charitable work.
“Although there are no words to express our sadness, we take solace in the fact that Sherry is no longer suffering and has been taken back into the arms of the Lord,” the Pollex family wrote in their statement after Sherry’s passing. Sherry lived her life to the fullest, touching the lives of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people along the way, as is common knowledge. She will never stop loving her friends, the kids from Catwalk, and her family.
