MOORESVILLE, N.C. – JR Motorsports has announced that the Rinnai Corporation will serve as the primary sponsor of Justin Allgaier’s No. 7 Chevrolet for the NASCAR XFINITY Series Rinnai 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Feb. 24.
Rinnai has been a long-time partner in the sport, with its involvement spanning more than a decade, and increased its involvement last year after signing on as a multi-year sponsor of the Atlanta XFINITY race.
“Rinnai is excited about the opportunity to sponsor Justin Allgaier and the No. 7 Chevrolet during the Rinnai 250,” said Frank Windsor, COO of Rinnai America Corporation. “With the launch of Rinnai’s portfolio of new products, sponsoring Justin during our namesake race is a good way to bring our brand in front of NASCAR fans. We wish Justin and his team all the best during the race.”
Headquartered in Peachtree City, Georgia, Rinnai America Corporation is a subsidiary of Rinnai Corporation, based out of Nagoyoa, Japan. In addition to water heaters, Rinnai also manufactures gas appliances, including a wide range of kitchen equipment and heating and air-conditioning units.
Rinnai recently announced plans to build its first North American manufacturing facility in Griffin, Georgia. The company intends to start its manufacturing and assembly operations in an existing factory in Griffin in April, before moving those operations to a new facility that Rinnai will construct.
“Rinnai is a top-notch company with quality products and I’m pumped to have them on board with us in their home state of Georgia,” said Allgaier. “I know they are also the race sponsor and they’ll have a lot of customers and employees there so we’re going to make sure they have a great experience. How cool would it be to get this Rinnai Chevrolet in Victory Lane at the end of the day?”
Allgaier is in his third year with JR Motorsports and is coming off the first multi-win season of his XFINITY Series career. In 240 series starts, he has five wins, 52 top-fives and 128 top-10 finishes.
