The 2020 season marks Gragson second with JRM. He has already won two races this season to qualify for the playoffs and ranks third in the standings.

“I’m so glad we were able to get this deal done,” Gragson said in a Friday news release from JR Motorsports. “This year has been great as we have a couple wins and are sitting third in the championship standings with a few races left before the playoffs. The No. 9 team along with everyone at the shop prepares fast cars every week and I can’t wait to drive their cars again next year. I’m so thankful for Kelley, Dale and everyone else at JRM. They treat everyone like family and they have become an extended family of mine.”
