Roush Fenway Racing and NOS Energy are reigniting a partnership in a sponsorship deal for Ricky Stenhouse Jr.‘s No. 17 Ford.

Roush announced Wednesday the energy drink will be the primary sponsor for Stenhouse in the June 9 race at Michigan International Speedway and an associate sponsor the rest of the season.

NOS Energy was a primary sponsor of Stenhouse when he competed for Roush in the Xfinity Series in 2012 and won his second Xfinity title. NOS continued as a supporter of Stenhouse until 2015 in the Cup Series. NOS is also a supporter of Stenhouse’s sprint car team in the World of Outlaws Series.

“I’m excited to have NOS Energy back on our No. 17 Ford,” Stenhouse said in a press release. “They have been a great supporter and partner of mine since 2012 on and off the track. Their support throughout the entire racing community shows their dedication and passion to all forms of motorsports. It’s great to have them back in the Cup Series.”

NOS returns to Roush Fenway after sponsoring Joe Gibbs Racing in the Xfinity Series from 2016-18.

Kyle Busch will drive in 10 NASCAR Xfinity races this season, Joe Gibbs Racing announced Thursday. NOS Energy Drink will again sponsor the No. 18 car for Busch in those races.

Busch is the series’ winningest driver with 86 wins. He won 10 of 17 Xfinity races he started last year.

Joe Gibbs Racing also announced that crew chief Scott Graves, who led Daniel Suarez to the Xfinity title last  year, will move to the No. 18 team this season. The team has yet to announce who will drive the No. 18 in races that Busch is not.

Here is Busch’s schedule for the Xfinity Series:

March 4 – Atlanta Motor Speedway (defending race winner)

March 11 – Las Vegas Motor Speedway (defending race winner)

March 25 – Auto Club Speedway

June 17 – Michigan International Speedway

July 7 – Kentucky Speedway (defending race winner)

July 15 – New Hampshire Motor Speedway (defending race winner)

July 22 – Indianapolis Motor Speedway (defending race winner)

Aug. 5 – Watkins Glen International

Aug. 18 – Bristol Motor Speedway

Sept. 8 – Richmond International Raceway (defending race winner)

Busch is limited in the races he can run because of a rule NASCAR issued last year that some call the “Kyle Busch Rule.”

The rule states that Cup drivers with more than five years of full-time experience can compete in a maximum 10 Xfinity races (and seven Camping World Truck Series races). Such drivers are prohibited from competing in the final eight Xfinity and Truck races, marking the regular-season finale and the playoffs for each series.
