Ready For Kansas

flexshot suit03 October 2014 - Kansas Speedway: Jeffrey Earnhardt will be piloting the JD Motorsports #4 Camaro this Saturday in the Kansas Lottery 300. With just 5 races remaining in the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series Season, Earnhardt sits 18th in points and an opportunity to move up in the rankings. "During the last few races we've had a mixed bag" said Jeffrey. "We had some issues with equipment and then in Richmond we were taken out with nowhere to go. Wrecks are part of racing so you take the bad with the good. In Kentucky we had a decent run and ended with a 16th finish. Our team is running on a tight budget at the moment so whenever we get a top 20 finish it's quite an accomplishment. The experience is good and I look forward to increasing our funding so we can get the engines & tools necessary to win races."

Kansas is a mile and a half track which proves challenging for the smaller teams but with good pits and smart driving the #4 team looks forward to a good day of racing. Television coverage begins at 3:30pm ET on ESPN.

Strong Run at Bristol

1Jeffrey Earnhardt turned in an excellent performance in Friday night’s Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway, finishing 12th after starting 21st.

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".

Jeffrey currently sits in 18th place in Nationwide points and heads to Atlanta for the Great Clips 300 Benefiting Feed the Children.

Headed to Indy

je mowerGaffney, SC - Jeffrey Earnhardt headed to Indianapolis Motor Speedway with one mission in mind, race a complete race after several weeks of healing from a broken collarbone suffered during a motorcycle crash. "The pain was pretty significant right after the accident but I was able to start races and keep in the points" said Jeffrey. "I knew it was still going to hurt in Indy but I couldn't go another week getting out of the car mid race. Unfortunately we had the engine issue but it was good for me to get back in the saddle full time."

Dixie Chopper was the title sponsor for Indy and Jeffrey had a great experience meeting the Dixie Chopper team and signing autographs at the sponsors booth.

“Dixie Chopper Mowers are really cool. They have so many neat products and it’s definitely the mower to use if you’re a professional groundskeeper or homeowner looking to tackle projects with ease” said Jeffrey. “I look forward to working together in the future and can support Dixie with confidence because they offer quality products that really work.”

Earnhardt will be entering Saturdays US Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway sitting 18th in NASCAR Nationwide drivers points. Race coverage begins at 7:30 pm on August 2nd on ESPN.
