Elsewhere in Nascar, Trackhouse Racing have agreed a sponsorship deal with non-profit healthcare system AdventHealth.

In addition, Rheem branding will feature on the cars of Christopher Bell and Kyle Busch at Joe Gibbs Racing.
Spire Motorsports have also signed a new sponsorship for the 2022 Nascar Cup season. Built, already the official protein bar of Nascar, will be the primary sponsor of driver Corey LaJoie for the Daytona 500 and nine other races across the season.
