Truex will be sponsored by Marquis Spas, which was one of his backers in 2019 when he ran a part-time schedule in the Xfinity Series with JR Motorsports.

Truex has 42 Truck Series starts since 2012. He competed full-time in 2017 with Hattori Racing Enterprises and earned eight top fives, 13 top 10s and two poles.
