Noah Gragson is set to chase a NASCAR Xfinity Series title as Bass Pro Shops, True Timber and Black Rifle Coffee Co. have all agreed to a 16-race sponsorship extension with the driver of the No. 9 JR Motorsports driver.
JR Motorsports made the news official with a press release on Tuesday.
“Bass Pro Shops, TrueTimber Camo and Black Rifle Coffee were with me during the biggest win of my career at Daytona International Speedway, and I feel honored that they are coming back for more races this year,” said Gragson in a team release. “I’ve gotten to know Johnny [Morris] well over the past few months and experiencing Victory Lane together in Daytona was a special moment. It’s something I will never forget.”
Team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. is blown away by the level of commitment from the sponsors on the No. 9 team.
“For Johnny [Morris] and the folks at Bass Pro Shops, along with Rusty [Sellars] of TrueTimber, to step up like this says so much about their commitment to our sport,” said Earnhardt. “I’ve known both Johnny and Rusty for a long time, and their support means a lot to every employee at JR Motorsports.”
The 22-year old Gragson, who has two wins this season, sits third in the championship standings.
2020 is his first full-time season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
