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.

Nashville, TN. Jeffrey Earnhardt returns to action this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Tennessee Lottery 250. Earnhardt will be piloting the ForeverLawn Number 26 Toyota Supra for Sam Hunt Racing.

“We are really excited for some redemption this weekend” commented Jeffrey. “Our races together this season have definitely had some curveballs but the team and I worked hard to make sure we checked every box for Nashville. If we can get a mechanically sound race I think we’re gonna be in good shape at the end.” Earnhardt demonstrated some incredible driving to finish p2 in Talladega and now he wants that same success for he and the SHR team.

If the preparation matches Earnhardt’s enthusiasm, fans can expect good things this Saturday. “We all want success together. We’ve bonded and have a great group of people pushing in the same direction . To get my first victory with Sam, Alan, Bryan and the SHR team would be really special. I think we’re ready and can’t wait to get the ForeverLawn black & green grass machine out on the track.” The green flag drops Saturday at 3.30pm ET and will be televised live on USA Network.

Earnhardt: Texas Recap

Posted by Paul in Front page news, News

Fort Worth, Texas. Jeffrey Earnhardt returned to action at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend.  Earnhardt was back in the Sam Hunt Racing number 26 with the ForeverLawn Toyota Supra sporting a new attractive paint scheme.  The temperature was hot and the track was fast but there were some issues that challenged the team throughout the race.

“We knew after practice and qualifying that we had some changes to make but it seems like we spent most of the day chasing the field” said Earnhardt.  “The guys never quit and we did our best to figure out what was keeping us from finding the late race spark like we did in Atlanta.  It was the same chassis and in Atlanta we had similar issues but found the answer late that day.  For this race we never really found the sweet spot.  Fortunately we have Charlotte this week and we’ll have another shot at a better finish.”
Earnhardt ran in the top 10 for part of the day but ended the race in p19.  In the past a top 20 finish wouldn’t be bad but both driver and team know they’re capable of much more. As they head to Charlotte for the Memorial Day weekend, you can be certain everyone will be focused on racing in the front.  “Our expectation is to run with the top teams and that is our plan” commented Jeffrey.  “We’re going to realize our potential and make sure that this weekend we get to a top 10 finish.”
 
The Alsco Uniform 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway begins at 1pm on Saturday, May 28th and will be televised on FS1.

Earnhardt Secures Pole at Talladega in Iconic #3 for RCR

Posted by Paul in Front page news, News

Talladega Super Speedway – “Sometimes the door of opportunity opens and people miss it. You blasted thru it today” said Dale Karmie, CEO of ForeverLawn as he bear hugged Jeffrey Earnhardt. In what can only be described as a storybook weekend, the 4th generation Earnhardt NASCAR driver climbed behind the wheel of Richard Childress Racing’s legendary #3 Chevrolet. The car made famous by Jeffrey’s 7 time champion grandfather, Dale Earnhardt. The build up to race day gained additional momentum when RCR announced that none other than America’s crew chief, Larry McReynolds would be climbing back atop the pitbox to lead Jeffrey’s team. As if that was not enough, Mike Dillon was up high to spot the race. The stage was set for everything Earnhardt Nation could ask for and the team & driver delivered.

Earnhardt’s first career pole position came after a qualifying effort that had Talladega buzzing. It was clear this was no publicity stunt. The 3 was there to win.

When the green flag waved, Earnhardt moved to the front and led laps until he couldn’t find proper drafting companions. His positions went up and down throughout the day and after multiple cautions Earnhardt found himself shooting for a top 10 finish in. What happened from that point forward looked like a film clip of the man who made the 3 famous 2 decades earlier. “I had challenges all day finding a good push from behind but I knew it was go time and figured it was on me to seek out the openings that usually present themselves late in the race” commented Earnhardt. “I was able to find holes and Mike encouraged me to have at it and go hard. We came up one position short but I think we made a lot of people proud and most of all, someone I could feel looking down at me with that smile from above. I can’t thank Richard, Larry, Mike and all the folks at RCR for believing in me and maximizing this opportunity. I also owe my sponsors ForeverLawn, Super-Pufft, Dalstrong and APA all of the appreciation I can offer. And to the fans, thanks for supporting me. I heard you and it means the world to me.”

Earnhardt’s next scheduled race is when the series heads to Texas where he’ll return to Sam Hunt Racing to pilot the ForeverLawn 26 car.
