BEAVERTON, Ore., March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Reser's Fine Foods enters fifth season with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) and second with driver Erik Jones, returning to the No. 20 Toyota Camry in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) as the primary sponsor for eight races this season starting this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.
"Our partnership with JGR continues to provide a tremendous platform to engage with our retailers and consumers," states President Mark Reser. "We can't wait to see what Erik Jones accomplishes this season behind the wheel of our No. 20 Toyota Camry and we'll be waiting to celebrate with him in victory lane."
