Joe Gibbs Racing and SiriusXM have renewed their relationship for another season. JGR announced on Monday that the team will have the satellite radio entity on Christopher Bell’s No. 20 machine for four races in 2021, including this weekend’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
“It’s pretty cool to have SiriusXM on my car this season,” said Bell in a team release. “SiriusXM NASCAR Radio has so many different shows and hosts for fans to listen to and it’s always fun to call in and catch up. Plus, I’m an avid SiriusXM listener when I’m driving around in my car.”
Bell, 26, took the first victory of his NASCAR Cup Series career earlier in the season at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course. In addition to Atlanta, the SiriusXM blue and black colors will be on Bell’s No. 20 car at Richmond (March 21), Road America (July 4) and Bristol Motor Speedway (September 18).
“We are truly honored to be a part of the Toyota Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing teams. We’re looking forward to showcasing the newly enhanced SiriusXM paint scheme on Christopher Bell’s No. 20 Toyota Camry for these four upcoming races,” said Christopher Lam, SiriusXM’s Senior Vice President of Automotive Partnerships. “We couldn’t be more proud of our long-standing relationship with Toyota, and we’re thrilled that SiriusXM is now a standard feature on every vehicle they manufacture.”
Through five races in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, Bell has racked up three top-10 finishes including his win at the Daytona RC. The driver, who is in his Sophomore season, currently sits eighth in the championship standings.
