Bass Pro Shops – a long-time sponsor of NASCAR’s top-three divisions — will return to Joe Gibbs Racing and Richard Childress Racing for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season, unveiling the company’s sponsorship schedule on their website.
For the fourth consecutive season, Bass Pro Shops will continue to serve as the anchor partner for Martin Truex Jr. and Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 19 Toyota Camry, with the entry carrying the company’s colors in a total of 25 NASCAR Cup Series events this season.
The 25-race deal is further broken down into the sponsorship of 23 points-paying events, as well as the Busch Light Clash (February 6) and the NASCAR All-Star Race (May 22). The deal was only comprised of 24 races in 2021, including the All-Star Race.
BPS will be prominently displayed on the No. 19 at Daytona (02/20), Las Vegas (03/06), Phoenix (03/13), Atlanta (03/20), COTA (03/27), Martinsville (04/09), Talladega (04/24), Dover (05/01), Charlotte (05/29), Sonoma (06/12), Nashville (06/26), Road America (07/03), Richmond (08/14), Daytona (08/27), Darlington (09/04), Kansas (09/11), Bristol (09/17), Texas (09/25), Talladega (10/02), Charlotte RC (10/09), Las Vegas (10/16), Homestead (10/23), and Phoenix (11/05).
While serving as the anchor partner of Martin Truex Jr’s entry this season, the company will also continue its long-standing relationship with Richard Childress Racing, adorning Austin Dillon’s No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro in 13 NASCAR Cup Series races, including the NASCAR All-Star Race on May 22.
Much like Truex’s sponsorship, BPS will adorn the No. 3 Chevrolet at Daytona (02/20), Bristol Dirt (04/17), Talladega (04/24), Kansas (05/15), Charlotte (05/29), Nashville (06/26), Loudon (07/17), Watkins Glen (08/21), Bristol (09/17), Talladega (10/02), and Las Vegas (10/16).
Last season, Bass Pro Shops adorned Dillon’s No. 3 in 14 NASCAR Cup Series events (including the Clash at Daytona’s RC).
As of the time of publishing, Richard Childress Racing has yet to reveal the paint scheme for Austin Dillon’s No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Camaro.
In addition to the company’s sponsorship of Dillon and Truex, Bass Pro Shops will serve as a full-season co-primary sponsor of Noah Gragson’s No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the second consecutive year, alongside True Timber and Black Rifle Coffee Company.
