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.

Mooresville, NC – Jeffrey Earnhardt has been working on his 2020 plans with an eye on racing for a championship next season.  “I had the good fortune of driving for Joe Gibbs Racing this season and getting a first hand look at a competitive team in a winning environment was a great experience” commented Earnhardt.  “My goal is to win championships and after being in top equipment that’s what we have 100% of our efforts on right now.  First and foremost I want to get back in a car as soon as possible but I want it to be in equipment that gives us a chance to win.”

Earnhardt has been working his way thru the ranks and when given the opportunity to drive for a competitive team he demonstrated that he’s a top caliber driver capable of winning races.  Multiple top tens and leading races during his limited schedule in 2019 awoke Earnhardt Nation and if all goes as planned in 2020, the fans of NASCAR are going to have the next generation Earnhardt driver bringing a lot of excitement back to the sport.
