  1. Her name is Leanne Joy and she works doing media for Toyota. I wonder what her charity initiative will be at his foundation. Sherry is dying and was his partner for over 15 years. Martin Truex Jr is a heartless p***e of s**t. Those people in the garage and on Pitt road where Sherrys friends/family also and he just cut her out like nothing. Couldn’t even be her teammate until the end? She was a huge part of his life. Martin needs to just turn right and make the first exit and go the hell away.
    How does any woman stand next to him and not actually put/see herself in Sherrys shoes?
    be proud to publicly stand by him?
    That man is as selfish and cold hearted as they come.

    • i have to say i agree , no i don’t know the whole story but its pretty cold hearted to split from some one you have been so involved with for years who is battling a disease. what was so important ? it just seems cold to me i am not impressed .

    • I agree with you. No matter if she told him to leave & focus on his career or if he just left her, who the heck has his new gf stand next to him at races while Sherry is battling for her life. Seeing him with someone else could have made her lose her spirit. I pray not. He lost a fan in me & I think many others.

    • actually, thats is not correct. Sherry made him move on. He wanted to quit racing to be by her side, and she wouldnt let him, since she knew she wasnt going to make it.. They are both amazing human beings. He isnt cold hearted, hes an amazing man that was going to give up his dream for her.. She ended it so he wouldnt walk away from his dream of driving.. you cant judge people in those circumstances!! your not in their shoes or in the room with them, so you have no idea what they are going through..

      • Thank you for that. These people that judge just by seeing him with someone else not knowing the situation is unbelievable to me. I have been a Nascar fan for many many years and if you are a fan of his which I’m not I’m a Larson fan you would know he wouldn’t have done that to Sherry. He loved her with all his heart and you could see that in his eyes and by watches them. I just thought they were the cutest couple. I knew right away what she did. That it wasn’t him. So get off your high horses and be fans. Love not hate.

  2. Why do people run away from one another. You’re suppose to stand by your partner to death do you part. I’ve seen so many leave due to health reasons put the shoe on the other foot. If you were in bad health would you want your spouse to hop up and walk away. This is personal due to a family member he left is wife because she has cancer and he seeing another woman then he divorced is wife. To me like that doesn’t have a heart.

    • You have no ideal what your talking about do a little research before you try to comment on something you know nothing about. 1st they was never married they just had a long time boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. 2nd Sherry was diagnosed in 2014 if you read the article you would know that she had 3 different surgeries and has been cancer free for several years now. 3rd when THEY announced THEY was splitting up it was amicable it was a decision THEY agreed on together. He said he will always stand behind her in her cancer fundraisers and they will continue to be good friends.

    • They weren’t married and he has no obligation. Sometimes relationships end and health should not be a determining factor

  3. Her name is Leanne Joy and she works for Toyota. Martin is a heartless man. Is he really bringing a date to his recent partner of the last 17 years funeral? Is that really what nice guys do? Martin is going downhill. Take the new girlfriend and turn right to exit.

  4. So Martin is bringing a date to Sherrys funeral? How heartless can this man be. He is so dumb. No woman with standards would be okay with this trash. Like, he doesn’t believe in until death do us part. And for sure doesn’t know what a ride or die is. Like, your ex of over 15 years is kicked out of her home to go die so he can get his bed warmed?

    • She is doing well no, no funeral, they spite an it was both there choice. I’m sure she didn’t want to stop him from have A family . He’s ready to retire, I. Sure he would do anything for Sherry. Martin Truex is a true Gentleman

  5. so he is bringing a date to his ex girlfriends funeral? He is a cold hearted jackass and she works for Toyota doing social media and marketing. Girl run he isn’t the “ride or die” or a “til death do us part” type. Those were her friends and family for over 15 years and you just kinda snuck right into her spot while her physical health is in decline.

  6. its heartless when Sherry was apart of his life for 15 years and near the end when she needs/wants someone to stand by her…He already has 2.0 on deck to take over Sherrys role/position. He lacks compassion and empathy. Someone needs to wake him up from his mid life crisis and help him find his soul.

  7. Her name is Emily Collins she is an RN from New Jersey. This is no shock she’s been around since last year won’t be needing that job with her new position.

  8. Seriously people? Sherry is not dying in the near future. People split up for a variety of reasons. If you are not an insider to the situation, you need to stop second guessing why they split and not throw around accusations that at this time are unfounded. In other words, MYOB.

  9. Lol, Sherrys birthday Martin told her to pack her s**t up and leave their home of 20 years. So for nurse Emily’s birthday he could give her a Reno budget and Sherrys closets.

  10. Her name is Emily Collins and she’s a nurse from New Jersey. He made the insta announcement because he had cover himself with the “overlap”. Basically for Sherrys birthday she got an eviction, nurse Collins got Sherrys closet and a Reno budget. Emily has been working her way into his inner circle for awhile and mem day was just her official pit road debut. She is tr**h. The look on JMorris face said enough. Like hide your pill popping wet nurse and have some discretion. Sherry gave you 15+ and formed friendships and bonds also. You’ll send the PJ to get laid but not to help your FRIEND get medical treatment. Nurse Collins twitter account didn’t age well, this racist chick fits the ignorant of NASCAR they were trying to forget. Someone should remind Martin family can be toxic also. They need to do better vetting before they let anyone into nursing school.

  11. just to comment, i dont think people need to get so involved in others personal lives. its clear we dont have all the facts. butt out!

  12. This is personal business and the only thing worse than any cancer diagnosis is getting remission and then relapse, beat it again and then refractory relapse within six months. My husband got diagnosed with a rare type of Lymphoma the same year as Sherry! If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything because it’s deep. Don’t judge people so easily.

  13. why doesn’t everyone mind their own business. all your opinons are like a-holes everybody has one, if you don’t know them personnely or anything valid about their lives then just keep your big mouths shut.

  14. Sherry has passed away on Sept 17. Martin left her in January of this year. Why couldn’t he stay with her thru her final journey? Even if she told him to move on, would you? But he met someone & stood with her at the races while Sherry was dying. Awful & shameful. My heart is broken for Sherry.

  15. You all think they split on good terms? That it was mutual? If you followed Sherry on IG, you’d see it wasn’t mutual. She posted a quote about not ever really knowing someone & “if he wanted to he would.” It doesn’t sound amicable to me.

  16. Wow – so much judgment when no one knows how the breakup went down, or really ANY of the details of this private relationship. It amazes me how quick people are to jump to conclusions.
