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.

Jeffrey Earnhardt Notes of Interest
 

●  The Alsco 300 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway is the 11th event of the 33-race NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule and the fifth race of the 2019 season for Jeffrey Earnhardt. He will drive the No. 18 iK9 Toyota Supra for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR).

●  Joining iK9 on the No. 18 Toyota Supra will be the USO. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.

●  Earnhardt has made five Xfinity Series starts at Charlotte with a best finish of 25th on May 24, 2014 in the History 300.

●  In the second race of the year at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Earnhardt raced to a sixth-place finish. It was his best Xfinity Series result in 68 career starts, with his previous best being a 12th-place effort on Aug. 22, 2014 in the Food City 300 at Bristol and again on May 2, 2015 in the Winn-Dixie 300 at Talladega.

Earnhardt’s Double at Dega

Posted by Paul in Front page news, News
Talladega – Jeffrey Earnhardt pulled his first ever NASCAR double duty this past weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.  Earnhardt piloted the Joe Gibbs Racing number 18 IK9 Toyota Supra in Saturday’s Xfinity Series and drove the Xtreme Concepts Inc Racing number 81 IK9 Toyota Camry in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday.  The gravity of the opportunity was apparent by Jeffrey’s focus throughout race weekend.  “This is such an excellent chance to race two times at IK9’s home track and at a place where my grandpa and uncle have had so much success” said the new face of Earnhardt Nation.  “This is what I’ve worked so hard for over the past several years and I’m going to maximize this opportunity and give the fans something to cheer about.”  Earnhardt did not disappoint.
Jeffrey finished 26th after starting 7th in Saturday’s Money Lion 300 due to a late race wreck that broke the front suspension beyond repair but that’s after racing his way to the front and challenging competitors for the lead.  “It felt great to bring the IK9 Supra to the front and I knew we could win that one but the cars were jumping out of line and as I was making my way back to the front I got side drafted and the rear end got loose which ended our day” commented Jeffrey.  As Earnhardt challenged for the lead the roar from the crowd was impressive.  But Sunday’s enthusiasm was downright electric!
