On Monday, Joe Gibbs Racing announced a partnership with MAC Tools, which will see the iconic tool brand serve as the primary sponsor of Christopher Bell and the No. 20 Toyota Camry at Richmond Raceway later this Summer.
MAC Tools, which was founded in 1938, is a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker, one of Bell's longstanding sponsorship partners.
Joe Gibbs Racing made the announcement in a Tweet, which also showcased the new No. 20 MAC Tools paint scheme:
Bell, the current NASCAR Cup Series point leader, scored a win a few weeks ago at the Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. The 28-year-old also scored an impressive fourth-place finish at Richmond Raceway earlier this month.
The driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry has seven top-10 finishes through the opening 10 races of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, and aside from DNFs due to crashes at Auto Club Speedway and Circuit of the Americas, it's been nearly a flawless start to the season for Bell.
Bell, a native of Norman, Oklahoma, was one of the four drivers that made it into the NASCAR Cup Series Championship 4 during the 2022 season, and he ended the season third in the championship standings.
The tenacious racer collected the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship, while driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports, back in 2017 and he amassed 16 victories in the NASCAR Xfinity Series ranks and made two NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship 4 appearances (2018 and 2019) before moving to the NASCAR Cup Series full-time in 2020.
Overall, Bell has 29 victories in the NASCAR National Series.
The Summer NASCAR Cup Series event at Richmond Raceway, where Bell is set to pilot the MAC Tools Toyota Camry, is set for Sunday, July 30th. The race will be televised on USA Network with television coverage scheduled to begin at 3:00 PM ET. The radio broadcast of that event will be carried live on MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
