Following Martin Truex Jr.‘s victory last Sunday at Sonoma Raceway, Toyota Racing Development president David Wilson admitted the campaign has begun to keep Truex in the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota next season.

“It sure has, and I am optimistic,” Wilson said Wednesday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Truex signed a new contract with Gibbs last year, but just for one year.

“From my frame of reference and where (he) is, a future Hall of Famer in this sport, it‘s about how fun he‘s having, and you see him climbing out of that race car more and more often with a smile on his face,” said Wilson.
