Martin Truex Jr. will once again sport Automobile Owners Insurance colors in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, and the company has revealed its eight-race primary sponsorship schedule of the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Toyota Racing on its website.

According to the official Automobile Owners Insurance website, Truex will wear the familiar blue at Richmond Raceway (April 2), Bristol Motor Speedway Dirt (April 9), Darlington Raceway (May 14), World Wide Technology Raceway (4 June), Atlanta Motor Speedway (July 9), Michigan International Speedway (August 9), Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course (August 13) and Martinsville Speedway (October 29).

Auto-Owners Insurance, which has backed Truex as title sponsor since the 2016 season, also ran eight title sponsor races with Truex on the #19 car a season ago.

On August 4, Auto-Owners Insurance officially announced that it would return as Truex’s primary partner in 2023.

Truex saw his seven-year NASCAR Cup Series Playoff streak come to an end in 2022, despite another very consistent season behind the wheel.

While Truex performed well, he failed to pick up a win for the first time since the 2014 season, which ultimately caused him to miss the Playoffs.

During the first five months of the 2022 season, rumors swirled that Truex could retire at the end of the year. However, Truex put those rumors to rest on June 24 by announcing he would return full-time to Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 19 team in 2023.

2023 will mark Truex’s 18th full-time racing season in the NASCAR Cup Series. The 42-year-old racer scored the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series championship, and he’s been in Championship 4 five times in the past eight years.

Overall, Truex has amassed 31 wins during his NASCAR Cup Series career.
