ARRIS has renewed its multi-year sponsorship agreement with Joe Gibbs Racing, the company announced. ARRIS will sponsor Daniel Suarez in 22 races this season (up from 17 last year with Carl Edwards).

“We had a great run with the legendary Carl Edwards, and now we’re proud to continue our work with JGR by extending our race-day sponsorship to 22 events in support of Daniel Suárez’s history-making trajectory,” said Ron Coppock, Executive Vice President, Global Marketing and Customer Operations at ARRIS in a statement. “Daniel represents the future of racing, and we’re looking forward to joining him on the podium in his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.”

ARRIS also announced that it is continuing its support of young Latin American drivers by renewing its sponsorship of Abraham Calderon, who won the Freightliner Truck Series in Mexico last year, and sponsoring 21-year-old Mexican driver Fabian Welter, who is in the Telemex Driver Development Program.

ARRIS first became involved in NASCAR in 2014 with its sponsorship of Edwards and Suarez.
