Jeffrey Earnhardt is the grandson of 7 Time NASCAR Cup Champion Dale Earnhardt and nephew of this generation’s most popular driver, Dale Jr.  Jeffrey began his race career piloting a silver 4 cylinder Yugo on the dirt tracks of Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, Virginia. He won Rookie of the Year at the local track and knew immediately that he’d be chasing his dreams to the paved tracks of NASCAR. Jeffrey hasn’t depended on his famous last name for opportunity.  Creating his own company and working his way thru the ranks like his grandfather did, Jeffrey has competed in Truck, Xfinity and Specialty events including the Rolex Series and NASCAR Euro Series.  He is absolutely committed to “Earning Earnhardt” and has his sights set on becoming a NASCAR Champion.

Fourth-generation NASCAR driver Jeffrey Earnhardt's helmet pays tribute to his grandfather, Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Jeffrey Earnhardt doesn’t have to look far for inspiration when he climbs into his NASCAR Xfinity Series ride. 

In what has become a tradition, Earnhardt’s helmet features an airbrushed image of his grandfather, seven-time Cup Series champion Dale Earnhardt Sr. The first, which debuted at the 2018 Daytona 500, showed a scowling Dale Sr. at the track, looking every bit like some unfortunate driver had just run afoul of the famed Intimidator. The next depicted a shirtless Earnhardt atop a horse, with the caption “Just a GOAT on his horse!”

2020 Closer at Phoenix Will See Earnhardt in Contec Blue

Posted by Paul in Front page news, News

Phoenix, AZ – Jeffrey Earnhardt takes to the track for one last time during this unique 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.  What started out as a plan to race a select number of competitions transitioned into running the remainder of the season after missing the initial 4 races of 2020 with JD Motorsports with Gary Keller.  “This season was a great opportunity to work with Johnny and his team again and demonstrate some blue collar grit” said Earnhardt.  “We didn’t necessarily have a big plan or a lot of funding but with hard work and skilled execution we had some really good runs this season.  I’m so proud of everyone involved because it takes a lot to compete at this level and when you add COVID to the equation it was 5x harder.”

Jeffrey will be racing the blue Contec Zero Chevrolet today and it’s an appropriate finish to a year impacted by the corona virus.  “We’ve had great sponsor partners this season” commented Jeffrey.  “Having Contec onboard had been outstanding.  They’re great people and they’re leading the way in our frontline efforts to combat this virus.  I’m fortunate to have their support and we look forward to giving them a great run today.”

The green flag waives at 5pm EST and will be televised on NBCSN.
