Strong Run at Bristol

The race had no shortage of Bristol action with multiple cars making contact throughout the race. Earnhardt ran aggressively throughout the race but maintained a disciplined approach to the challenging track. “It really felt good to race around the top 10 and come home with such a solid finish,” Earnhardt said. “The car ran great, and we were able to avoid the accidents and spins. That usually leads to a good finish here.”

The 12th place finish is a major accomplishment for the underfunded team at JD Motorsports and driver. "We know we have to work extra hard to be competitive and tonights race was a great example of overachieving My team fired on all cylinders and I did what I had to do to return the favor. Johnny & Gary (JD Motorsports owners) promised we'd be competitive and that finish was good for all of us."

Earnhardt advanced from 17th to 12th over the race’s final 45 laps and his Uncle's post race tweet captured the spirit of the evening for his nephews efforts: @DaleJr "Proud as hell of you @JEarnhardt1".

Challenges at The Monster Mile

Dover, DE - The Monster Mile had some challenges in store for the #4 team of Jeffrey Earnhardt during the past weekends Buckle Up 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series Race. Starting with a practice crash caused by leaking fluids on a competitors car and a backup car that took most of the evening to prepare, the #4 team demonstrated a gritty perseverance to make the race but it wasn't enough to avoid a 30th place finish. "It was tough to lose a good car the way we did in practice but sometimes you go through these things and it brings you closer as a team" said Jeffrey. "After the crash we pulled out the backup car and the guys put in an incredible effort to have a car ready to race on Saturday. I stayed with the team to pitch in and was humbled to see how hard everyone worked to make sure we could race. No one likes to come in 30th but when you fight as a team it definitely brings you closer and more eager to get another shot at the next race."

FASTWAX.COM and the Austin Hatcher Foundation sponsored the #4 Camaro and the extra effort wasn't lost on the sponsors supporting the youngest Earnhardt driver. Fastwax.com CEO Darren Ellsmore had this to say about the team fielding a car for the race, "When you sponsor the smaller teams they go the extra mile to make sure you have a positive experience. I knew the backup car wouldn't let Jeffrey race up front but the fact that they didn't let us down and still made the race says a lot about the character of JD Motorsports and Jeffrey. We've been supporting Jeffrey since the beginning and have confidence that sooner than later all of this hard work is going to reward everyone. I'm proud of his perseverance and everyone at Fastwax.com is proud to be a partner with Jeffrey and the JD Motorsports family."
