Ex-NASCAR star Danica Patrick takes heat for scathing message to Martin Truex Jr amid death of Sherry Pollex

The NASCAR world mourned the death of Sherry Pollex on Sunday, as the philanthropist and former girlfriend of Martin Truex Jr. lost her battle with cancer after several years.

As the racing world sent their condolences on social media, former racing star Danica Patrick ruffled some feathers with her terse statement in response to Truex’s statement on Pollex’s death. Truex and Pollex dated from 2005-2023, and she ran the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation to help children with pediatric cancer. The two split in January but remained close friends.

Patrick did not appear to appreciate Truex’s statement.

Patrick has not raced in the NASCAR Cup Series since the 2018 season, when she finished 35th at Daytona. She last raced full-time in 2017.
