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.

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."

During the weekend Jeffrey had the pleasure of visiting Dover AFB and received a base tour with some of America's finest. See this quick video of his visit:

The next race is scheduled for June 14th at Michigan International Speedway.

Charlotte Bound

Charlotte, NC - Ten races into the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series season and Jeffrey Earnhardt sits 15th in points. Completing every race of the season has been a valuable experience for the 4th generation Earnhardt driver.

"We come into Charlotte with a lot of clean laps under our belt" said Jeffrey. "We realize the speed will come with more sponsorship funding but you see a lot of the well funded teams crashing out of races and we're finishing. We've had some top 20 finishes and while we'd love to have wins and top 10's, it's a process that requires more funding and more seat time. I'm real happy with my team and the efforts we put in each week and thankful for the sponsors that support us. If we keep doing what we're doing and can bring in new sponsor partners we'll be moving up in points and finishes and we'll be sure to open some eyes in the Nationwide Series."

The History 300 race is Saturday, May 24th and ABC will begin television coverage at 2:30pm.

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.

“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 Bound

qw

Richmond, VA. - Jeffrey Earnhardt entered the month of April with top 20 finishes in Texas and Darlington.

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.

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.

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.

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.
