JEFFREY EARNHARDT NASCAR DRIVER

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 Pocono Green 250 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway is the 12th event of the 33-race NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule and the sixth race of the season for Jeffrey Earnhardt.

●  Earnhardt returns to the No. 18 iK9 Toyota Supra for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) after a career-best third-place finish last weekend in the Alsco 300 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

●  Saturday’s event will mark Earnhardt’s first Xfinity Series start at Pocono. He has three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Starts at the 2.5-mile triangle with a best finish of 29th in last year’s Gander Outdoors 400.

●  In five Xfinity Series starts this season, Earnhardt has earned one top-five and three top-10 finishes. He has an average starting position of 8.0 and an average finish of 11.6.

●  Earnhardt’s third-place finish in the Alsco 300 at Charlotte was a career-best finish across 157 combined starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoors Truck Series. His previous best finish was sixth on Feb. 23, 2019 in the Rinnai 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

●  Earnhardt’s top-three finish at Charlotte was the newest edition to his list of career-firsts in his first season with Xtreme Concepts Racing and JGR. In the season-opening Xfinity Series race at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, Earnhardt led 29 laps, making him the first driver to put the new Toyota Supra into the lead of an Xfinity Series race. And Earnhardt’s second-place qualifying effort earned him his best starting spot in 152 career starts across the NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoors Truck Series. His 29 laps led were more than he had led in 15 previous races at Daytona in the NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Gander Outdoors Truck Series. He followed up his performance at Daytona with a sixth-place finish at Atlanta and an eighth-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.
