Perdue Foods on Board for Richmond

asd.000

GAFFNEY, S.C. – Perdue Foods will be riding along with Jeffrey Earnhardt when he challenges Richmond International Raceway in Friday’s ToyotaCare 250 Nationwide Series race. JD Motorsports with Gary Keller announced the Perdue sponsorship Tuesday. The partnership renews a very special relationship for Perdue, which once worked with and sponsored Dale Earnhardt Sr., Jeffrey’s grandfather and one of NASCAR’s all-time greatest drivers.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the folks at Perdue,” said team owner Johnny Davis. “Jeffrey’s first season is going well, and this will give us an extra boost as we get ready for Richmond. We’re all looking forward to having Perdue along for the ride.”

Earnhardt is in his first full season in the Nationwide Series. He has scored two straight top-20 runs in the No. 4 JD Motorsports Chevrolet, and with a boost from Perdue, is looking for bigger things at Richmond this week.

“We’re excited to be riding with Jeffrey Earnhardt, JD Motorsports and Gary Keller at Richmond,” said Perdue Chairman Jim Perdue. “Jeffrey’s having an exciting first full season in the Nationwide Series. It’s also a special honor to be once again associated with the Earnhardt family. We were an associate sponsor on the number 3 car with Dale Earnhardt, and he was also one of our chicken growers. For the Perdue family and our company, it means something special to see a tradition carried on through the generations.”

“We want to thank Johnny Davis and Gary Keller for this opportunity to make this special appearance in NASCAR’s Nationwide series, and for the opportunity to showcase Perdue on the number 4 car,” said Gail McWilliam, Vice President of Marketing, Perdue brand. “All of us associated with Perdue are thrilled to be riding with Jeffrey and the JD Motorsports team Friday night.” A fan of short tracks, Earnhardt is ready to roll at RIR.

“Richmond is one of my favorite tracks, and it’s going to be great to have Perdue on board this week,” Earnhardt said. “I’m looking forward to giving them an impressive run there. Having a strong sponsor is a key to doing well in this sport, and Perdue fills the bill for us.”

Richmond Bound

qw

Richmond, VA. - Jeffrey Earnhardt entered the month of April with top 20 finishes in Texas and Darlington. Driver and team continue to make progress on and off the track and this weekends Toyota Care 250 at Richmond International Raceway is an opportunity to build on that momentum. "We're getting better each week and learning what things we need to do to maximize our performance" said Jeffrey. "The seat time has been very valuable and with the exception of getting clipped early in Bristol, we're having clean finishes and racing the best we can." Last year in Richmond Jeffrey made national news racing for his uncle at JR Motorsports. Spending much of that race with the front of the pack, Jeffrey looks forward to returning to Richmond.

"That opportunity was a lot of fun. We have a good car for this weekend and I'm ready to drive that #4 as fast as she can go." Jeffrey currently sits in 17th in NNS drivers points and this race certainly provides the opportunity to improve that position at the end of the day.

The Green Flag is scheduled to wave at 7:15pm EST with television coverage on ESPN News channel.

Looking ahead to Vegas

je fw1 2014Las Vegas, NV- Two races into the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series and Jeffrey sits 17th in points. Daytona was a clean race for Earnhardt but removal of the tandem draft left the smaller teams at a distinct disadvantage. Car & Driver ran to the best of their ability but the only answer to a higher place finish was more horsepower. The Daytona 500 victory by Jeffrey's uncle (Dale Jr.) was great motivation and everyone at JEI and JD Motorsports are doubling down to secure sponsorship to improve the program.

From there the team rolled on to Phoenix for some small track racing. Jeffrey drove the #4 Chevrolet Camaro to a clean 27th place finish before the race was called due to rain. "I'm happy to be out there competing and look forward to working with the team to increase our speed" said Earnhardt. "We need to increase our funding so we can get more competitive. I appreciate everything the guys are doing and look forward to Vegas."

Jeffrey's next race will be the Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday, March 8th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Race Season Fast Approaching

January 24, 2014 - Salisbury, NC. The sun was shining and the #4 Warrior50.org Chevrolet was shadowed by a green bird in front of VFW Post 3006. It was the first of many visits Jeffrey will be making to Veterans organizations during the 2014 season. "I always enjoy working with sponsors and meeting fans at their events but this is pretty special" said Jeffrey. "These veterans have served our country with great personal sacrifice and hearing their stories puts life in perspective. They didn't get the respect they deserved when they returned and I'm glad we can be part of making it right during the 50th anniversary."

The day was spent exchanging stories, taking pictures and discussing the upcoming season. Larry Edwards, Commander of VFW Post 3006 said, "I feel that it is only appropriate that it's an Earnhardt that is bringing the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration to the forefront." Rodger Feldbusch of the 4th Division commented, "It's touches me to see the Vietnam veterans honored this way, this will mean a lot to so many people, thank you." And finally a quote from Milton Williams, a veteran from the 82nd Airborne summarized his appreciation with words that so many Americans have been thinking over the years, "It's about damn time."

Milton, everyone on Jeffrey's team and millions of grateful Americans share your thoughts and we're honored to do our part to answer that call.

Jeffrey will be traveling throughout the country to pay tribute to America's Vietnam Veterans and we sincerely appreciate your service to our great nation.

Jeffrey Earnhardt to Drive Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Chevrolet in NASCAR Nationwide Series

W50ad001a-1024x791

Daytona Beach, Fla. (Jan. 16, 2014) – Beginning this season, NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Jeffrey Earnhardt, grandson of racing legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., will bring an important message rooted in sacrifice and patriotism to the racetrack. Earnhardt will carry the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Seal on his No. 4 Chevy Camaro for the entirety of the 2014 season.

"The President of the United States signed a proclamation to honor Vietnam Veterans for the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, and we'll be delivering that message for their commemorative partner Warrior 50", said Earnhardt.  "This is a huge honor and I'm humbled to pay tribute to that generation of great Americans. We'll be racing to honor those who served during a challenging time in our history and I look forward to showing the NASCAR fans appreciation for our Vietnam Vets and their families."

A non-profit organization, Warrior 50 seeks to honor Vietnam Veterans and bring awareness to the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War through NASCAR. The organization also provides valuable resources to all veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

"A great many Vietnam Vets and their families are enormous NASCAR fans so it makes this such an appropriate tribute,” said the Rev. Dr. Chuck Gass of Warrior 50. “The Warrior 50 effort will be entirely funded by contributions from the people.  Every grateful American is encouraged to visit www.Warrior50.org to make a tax deductible contribution towards this mission.  There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come!  These brave warriors fought and died for us and it's only fitting that we do this for them.”

"As Commemorative Partners, Jeffrey Earnhardt and his team join a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families for their service, valor and sacrifice,” said Lt. Gen. Claude "Mick" Kicklighter, U.S. Army (Retired), Director, Department of Defense Office of Commemorations. “From Daytona to Homestead and all NASCAR Nationwide Series locations in between, they will be honoring thousands of Vietnam Veterans in their hometowns during each race, for which we are extremely thankful."

Jeffrey Earnhardt's first race featuring the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Seal will be televised live on ESPN on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, at 1:15 p.m. (EST) from Daytona International Speedway.

New Season Approaching

Mooresville, NC – The 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series season comes to an end and Jeffrey Earnhardt finds himself reflecting on the past 3 years. “We’re slowly but surely making progress and like NASCAR days of old, we’re having to earn every opportunity” said Jeffrey. “We’ve had ups & downs but our team is committed to a long term vision and things are progressing.” Earnhardt competed in 17 races this season and earned valuable seat time. “Early on we knew this was going to be a marathon and seat time was the main goal. We brought home clean cars and completed races with a lot of hard work and a team effort.”

“We’re creating long term partnerships with our sponsors and the fans see that we're moving forward. I think they like the fact that nothings being handed to us and we’re coming up through the ranks the way my grandpa, DW and the others did. Next season will be better than this one and every year I take a step forward is another move towards the goal of competing for a championship in Cup.”

Blueprints are being drawn and when Jeffrey and Go Green Racing head into 2014 you can rest assured that Jeffrey and team have the target in sight and will be taking the next step towards having the Earnhardt name atop the leader board once again.

EARNHARDT GAINS 19 POSITIONS AT MID-OHIO

17 August 2013 - Lexington Ohio: Jeffrey Earnhardt started close to the back of the pack during Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 in his #79 Uponor-Wendy's Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption Ford Mustang but rough racing, spins and a late penalty didn't prevent him from advancing to a top 20 finish. Moving from a green flag spot of 37 to running as high as 7th with just a few laps remaining demonstrated Earnhardts skills in road course racing.

"I really enjoy the road courses and today the team was firing on all cylinders" said Jeffrey. "We're out here against a lot of large budget teams so you really have to fight for every spot. We were shooting for a top 10 but the late penalty put us back to the rear and then I had to battle back to get into the top 20. I'm really proud of the guys at Go Green and was glad we were able to compete the way we did today."

Earnhardt Looking to Finish Strong

August 2 2013 - Mooresville, NC -- Jeffrey Earnhardt has been working hard to increase his driving opportunities for 2013 and preparing for his next race on August 17th in the #79 Uponor-Wendy's Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption Ford Mustang. "Our guys are working on opportunities to get a few more races added to this years schedule and we've been looking at some exciting things for 2014. I'm looking forward to our next race with Uponor and Wendy-DTFA. Uponor brings their customers to the races and it's a great experience for everyone" said Jeffrey. "In Daytona we had a good race going before getting caught in someone else's wreck but we ran well. It's been fun working with the Wendy's -DTFA because we're giving a lot of special kids an opportunity to spend the day with our team and NASCAR & the tracks have been super with hospitality. In Mid Ohio we'll have a large number of kids coming to enjoy the race and spend time together. I'm fortunate to be able to be a part of this and I know the kids enjoy it too."

Next Race - NATIONWIDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL 200 August 17th, 2013 at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course

Headed to Daytona

28 June 2013 - Daytona, FL. Jeffrey Earnhardt is headed down to Daytona International Speedway to race in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Subway Firecracker 250 Powered By Coca-Cola on Friday, July 5th. He'll be driving the #79 Tobacco Free Florida - Wendy's Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption Ford Mustang and has some added excitement for this race. "We're always pumped to race Daytona and this race is extra special because we're bringing some VIP guests" said Earnhardt.

"The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption works hard to find families for children so we decided to meet the kids at the Florida United Methodist Childrens Home before the race and let them check out the car, sign some stuff for them and have a group join us as guests on race day. I think 45 kids will be with us at the track so we're looking forward to a fun time."

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption was established by Wendy's founder Dave Thomas to help every child in foster care find a loving and permanent family.

"Working with the foundation is very satisfying. Bringing smiles to these kids and raising awareness to their need for a caring family is something I really enjoy and I look forward to spreading the message and racing for the kids."
