Thomasville, NC (April 30, 2012) – Jeffrey Earnhardt will be making his NASCAR Nationwide Series Talladega debut this Saturday, May 5th in the Aaron’s 312. He’ll be driving the #15 FASTWAX.COM – POYNT Mustang for Rick Ware Racing in his 3rd trip to a super speedway synonymous with the Earnhardt name. “We ran trucks here the past two years and while we got caught by some wrecks, I feel comfortable on this track. It’s my first Nationwide race here and we’re expecting a great run” said Jeffrey.
Rick Ware sees the youngest Earnhardt driver coming into his own and is looking forward to this weekend’s race. “I’ve had the opportunity to watch Jeffrey develop over the past 2 years and you can see it’s only a matter of time before he’s winning races. His instincts are great and his confidence is supporting his ability” said team owner Ware.
While news of Jeffrey’s MMA debut has been the buzz, all of his focus is on Talladega. “I’ve been getting a lot of interest on my MMA fight (5/22 streaming live on www.jeimma.com) and that’s pretty cool but racing comes first and Talladega is special. We have a lot of friends in this area and I want to go out and give them something to cheer about” commented Earnhardt.
The race will be televised live on ABC at 3pm ET. Media inquiries to email@example.com
