JGR Announce New Drivers and Partners for 2015 NASCAR Series

August 21, 2014

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) has announced that ARRIS Group will sponsor Carl Edwards and Daniel Suarez for the upcoming 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series.

JGR has been operating with three cars since 2005 and has held off expanding to the NASCAR-maximum of four full-time entries, but have now done so after confirming Edwards and Suarez as their new drivers.

“We felt like if we could get Carl, and we could get another sponsor, that this was the right time,” said Joe Gibbs.

Carl Edwards said: “Sometimes you’ve just got to shake things up, you’ve got to do things differently.

“When an opportunity like this comes up and the all the pieces come together this perfectly, for me, I didn’t want to look back and wonder what that would have been like. I wanted to take the opportunity and go see what I could make of it.”

ARRIS will support Suarez in a multi-year program, starting in 2015 in the Nationwide Series, as well as a partial schedule in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

JGR also launched a diversity initiative with Escuderia TELMEX to provide developmental opportunities to Mexican and Latin American candidates in the NASCAR Toyota Series in Mexico and other racing series under the JGR umbrella.
