JEFFREY EARNHARDT NASCAR DRIVER

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.

Charlotte Recap

25 May 2020 – Concord, NC.  Jeffrey Earnhardt returned to NASCAR Xfinity Series action this Memorial Day Monday and it was certainly a race Earnhardt and NASCAR fans will not forget anytime soon.  The evening began with the Contec #0 Chevrolet in a starting position of 23rd in a field of 37 cars.  The weather was ideal for racing and Earnhardt was eager to give his new sponsor a return on their investment.  Little did Jeffrey know that a rogue jack was going to steal the show and put his Contec car on the Today Show, Barstool Sports, and countless other news outlets as it took its own lap around Charlotte Motor Speedway.  “The jack getting stuck under the car was certainly the difference between a good finish and where we ended up” said Earnhardt.  “Based on our lap times we could have competed for 12th or better, but I’m not going to get mad at anyone.  We’re a team and stuff happens that we just have to work through.  Even though the problem put us back several laps we continued to race and by the time the checkered flew we picked up 13 spots I think, so we fought back as best we could.  I wanted the good folks at Contec to get good air time but I don’t think any of us anticipated that much exposure and definitely not for that reason, haha.”
 
Jeffrey and JD Motorsports with Gary Keller are working on additional sponsorship to increase Earnhardt’s races this season and with continued efforts from all, the expectation is that fans are going to see a lot more of Jeffrey in 2020.  His next race is to be announced shortly.

Darlington Recap

21 May 2020 – Darlington, SC.   Xfinity Series Racing returned to action at the Darlington Speedway and an Earnhardt driver was making his season debut for Johnny Davis Motorsports with Gary Keller in the Kids First Community – Flexfit #0 Chevrolet.  It had been eleven months since Jeffrey last drove in the NASCAR ranks but his calm demeanor and steady hand showed no signs of rust.  “I was definitely eager to get back on track and I think all the drivers were in the same boat” said Earnhardt.  “I had a little more layoff than most but I keep fit and use my VRX Simulator to stay prepared so I was confident once the green flag dropped that I would settle in quick.”
 
Qualifying was negated due to NASCAR’s Covid protocols so Earnhardt started in the 34th position.  It didn’t take long for Jeffrey to navigate his way thru traffic and within a short series of laps Earnhardt was moving forward.  “No question it took a few laps to get comfortable but as I learned what to expect from the competition we were able to make a plan to pick off some drivers” commented Jeffrey.  “We came home with a 23rd place finish and I think we could have gained a few more but it was a good start for a new driver & team.  I think we’re going to beat the guys we’re supposed to and turn a few heads during this season.”
 
Earnhardt’s next race is this Memorial Day at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
