MOORESVILLE, N.C. – B.J. McLeod Motorsports announced Wednesday that Matt Mills will return to the team’s No. 5 entry full time next year in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
J.F. Electric returns as the primary sponsor of the No. 5 driven by Mills, the 24-year-old from New Philadelphia, Ohio.
Headquartered in Edwardsville, Ill., J.F. Electric brings a wealth of electrical knowledge and experience to all projects they undertake, finding the right combination of electrical design and construction services for utility, commercial, industrial or communications customers.
“We’re so happy to have both Matt (Mills) and J.F. Electric return to B.J. McLeod Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for another season,” said team co-owner B.J. McLeod. “Their commitment to our race team has allowed Jessica and I to continue to invest in, and improve B.J. McLeod Motorsports. We believe that the No. 5 team will surprise people next season and we couldn’t be more excited to get started at Daytona.”
B.J. McLeod Motorsports will once again field three full-time Xfinity Serues entries next year.
In addition, B.J. and Jessica McLeod have partnered with Matt Tifft to form Live Fast Motorsports, operating under the charter that Tifft and McLeod obtained alongside Joe Falk.
LFM will field the No. 78 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Cup Series next year in a strategic partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing.
“Being given the opportunity to return to BJ McLeod Motorsports and drive the No. 5 J.F. Electric car is such a honor,” said Mills. “We’re going to have some fast race cars next year. When you drive for owners like B.J. and Jessica (McLeod) that continue to invest so much into motorsports, it’s hard to not be excited.
“The addition of Live Fast Motorsports to BJ and Jessica’s motorsports business portfolio is a huge deal for the Xfinity team too. Daytona can’t come fast enough for our team.”
In addition to support from J.F. Electric, Mills and the No. 5 team will have support from Utilitra and Thompson Electric throughout the Xfinity Series season.
