Joe Gibbs Racing will have major sponsorship support for its Xfinity Series program in 2018 with the announcement that Rheem has partnered with the organization.

Rheem, which manufacturers a variety of heating, cooling and commercial refrigeration products, will serve as the primary sponsor for Rookie of the Year contender Christopher Bell and the No. 20 team for 23 races. Additionally, Rheem will be the primary sponsor for 10 races with the No. 18 Toyota driven by Ryan Preece.

"We're thrilled to partner with Rheem," team owner Joe Gibbs said in a team release. "They have built a winning company in their industry with many of the same attributes we hold valuable at our race team. Rheem has a long history in our sport and they understand what it takes to be successful. We think Christopher and Ryan will represent them well both on and off the track."

Bell, who scored his first Xfinity win in October at Kansas Speedway, is moving into the series after winning the 2017 Camping World Truck Series championship. Preece will again run a limited schedule after impressing during the four starts he made this season, which included picking up a victory at Iowa Speedway.

Through Rheem and Rudd brands, there will again be two different paint schemes for their respective races. The 2018 designs will be new and "intended to say 'thanks to NASCAR fans for allowing us to support the sport you love" as well as promising that 'Rheem is taking leading and winning to a whole new level.'"

Rheem will make its debut with JGR on Bell's car in the season-opening race at Daytona on Feb. 17. Rudd will make its first appearance at Atlanta. The first time Preece pilots the Rheem colors will be at Auto Club Speedway.

Bell will run the full Xfinity Series season alongside Brandon Jones, who joins JGR after two seasons at Richard Childress Racing. Preece will run a limited schedule along with Kyle Busch, Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones.
