|July 3, 2018 (Mooresville, NC) – Jeffrey Earnhardt returns to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this weekend at Daytona International Speedway, to compete in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday night. Earnhardt will be piloting the No. 7 Nine Line Foundation/Xtreme Concepts Chevrolet Camaro with a special paint scheme honoring our active nations service members.
“I’m happy to be racing with Premium Motorsports again and having over 450 of our American service members on board” said Earnhardt. “The Nineline Foundation does so much good for our military families and with Xtreme Concept and our other partners onboard and present for the race, I’m confident we’re going to have a great experience for everyone involved.”
“Jeffrey is a very smart driver and a pleasure to work with,” commented Jay Robinson. “He always runs well at the speedways and we believe this weekend will be no different. Everybody at Premium Motorsports is looking forward to having Jeffrey in the No. 7 at Daytona.”
