Bass Pro Shops follows Truex to JGR


Bass Pro Shops will continue to sponsor Martin Truex Jr. following his move to Joe Gibbs Racing this season.

The company will be a primary sponsor on the No. 19 Toyota in 24 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races beginning with Daytona 500. It is a multi-year deal for Bass Pro to support Truex at JGR.

“We’re fired up to keep rolling with Martin in 2019,” said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. “His spirit and passion for hunting and fishing makes him a great ambassador for Bass Pro and the outdoors. Martin is a true champion in racing as well as in life, and I’m honored to call him my friend and fishing buddy of more than 15 years.”

Bass Pro Shops sponsored Truex in 16 primary races last year while at Furniture Row Racing.

“I’m pumped to have Bass Pro with us again,” Truex said. “Johnny Morris has supported me throughout my career. I can’t thank him and the entire Bass Pro Shops organization enough for their support. I look forward to continuing our success together for many years to come.”
