Posted by Paul in Front page news, News
Mooresville, N.C. (January 17, 2019). – Jeffrey Earnhardt enters the new year with laser focus and a thirst to get to Daytona.  “This offseason is really the first time I can recall that I’ve been able to prepare for a competitive ride” said the 4th generation driver.  “In years past we’ve had to piece together a lot of last minute deals and it’s pretty stressful.  Thanks to Xtreme Concepts I’ve been able to focus on prepping as a driver with simulator time, workouts and proper planning to race.  We’ve enjoyed some incredible time outdoors pursuing ducks and other game and now we’re all about maximizing the opportunity at Joe Gibbs Racing.”
Earnhardt will pilot the number 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Supra in Daytona during the NASCAR Xfinity Series Powershares QQQ 300 and has a total of 9 races with JGR.  “I’m beyond pumped to get to Daytona” said Jeffrey.  “Going to the JGR shop is honestly like a dream.  The people are top notch.  The facility is incredible and everything is geared around winning.  I’ve always had confidence in myself and now I’ll have an opportunity to give the Earnhardt fans something to cheer about.  They’ve supported me when it probably wasn’t easy (laughing).  But now we have the best of the best and I’m going to do everything I can to reward them for being in my corner.”
When asked about his plans for the rest of 2019 Earnhardt was quick to point out that all hands are on deck to maximize the season.  “We have some irons in the fire that will be exciting to share but that is something for another day” answered Earnhardt.  “For now I’m totally dialed in on Daytona and look forward to making Coach Gibbs and Xtreme Concepts proud.”

 Jeffrey Earnhardt Gets New Gameplan with Joe Gibbs Racing

Fourth-Generation Earnhardt Set for Nine-Race NASCAR Xfinity Series Schedule

in Vaunted No. 18 Toyota with Backing from Xtreme Concepts Inc.

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (Nov. 9, 2018) – Jeffrey Earnhardtwill compete in a nine-race NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule for Joe Gibbs Racing(JGR) in 2019 with sponsorship from Xtreme Concepts Inc.,a worldwide leader in providing turnkey security solutions, along with training and technology integration to U.S. government, military and commercial clients on a global scale.

Earnhardt will make his debut in the No. 18 Xtreme Concepts Toyota Supra in the season-opening Xfinity Series race Feb. 16 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Eight more races will follow, allowing the 29-year-old from Mooresville, North Carolina, to compete in the same front-running equipment that has secured more than 150 Xfinity Series victories for JGR.

“I’ve worked incredibly hard for this opportunity and I’ve got to thank Xtreme Concepts for making it happen,” said Earnhardt, the grandson of seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Dale Earnhardt. “You see the level of expertise Joe Gibbs Racing has and the caliber of equipment they bring to the racetrack every week. As a driver, it’s exactly where you want to be. It’s the best opportunity I’ve had in my career and I plan to make the most of it.”

Xtreme Concepts is backing Earnhardt’s endeavor, with the Birmingham, Alabama-based company showcasing its brands on the No. 18 Toyota, most notably iK9, a comprehensive canine solutions provider for detection and service dogs, along with professional handler education.

“We believe motorsports is an incredibly strong platform to highlight the many services Xtreme Concepts can provide, and we also believe in Jeffrey Earnhardt,” said Landon Ash, founder, Xtreme Concepts. “I know firsthand how just having the opportunity to show what you can do is all you need to find success. It’s how we’ve grown Xtreme Concepts since our founding in 2008 to a worldwide leader in security concepts and solutions. Jeffrey has been an excellent representative for Xtreme Concepts and our brands like iK9 and through this endeavor with Joe Gibbs Racing we plan to grow together.”

Earnhardt has made a total of 151 starts across the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series, but none have been with an organization with the depth and resources of JGR. Earnhardt is taking a path most recently traveled by Ryan Preece, a driver who joined JGR in 2017 and promptly won two Xfinity Series races after finally getting into equipment befitting his talent.

“From the time we first came to NASCAR in 1992, we’ve always put forth maximum effort to have the best possible results on the racetrack,” said Coy Gibbs, Vice Chairman and COO, JGR. “Our Xfinity Series program is the perfect example of what happens when preparation meets execution. We’ve had both up-and-coming and veteran drivers achieve success in our racecars, and that success has translated to the partners they’ve represented. We think Jeffrey Earnhardt has the talent to win races and deliver strong results for Xtreme Concepts.”

Details regarding Earnhardt’s nine-race Xfinity Series schedule will be announced prior to the start of the 2019 season.
