Christopher Bell will take over the seat of the No. 20 Toyota Camry at Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series for the 2021 season.
Bell currently is driving the No. 95 Toyota for Leavine Family Racing but will assume the seat of Erik Jones who did not have his contract with JGR extended.
“I’m so appreciative of the opportunity I have this year with LFR and I want to finish this season strong for Bob (Leavine) and everyone there,” said Bell. “At the same time, I’m extremely excited to return to Joe Gibbs Racing starting in 2021. It’s an organization I’m very comfortable with and have had a lot of success with.”
Bell has scored a top five and five top-10 finishes during his rookie season in the Cup Series.
“We are excited to bring Christopher into our Cup Series program starting in 2021,” said Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing. “He obviously had tremendous success in the Xfinity Series with us and we look forward to his return to JGR.”
Bell spent two seasons in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with JGR winning 15 races.
