GAFFNEY, S.C. – Jeffrey Earnhardt, the grandson of NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt, will pilot the No. 15 Chevrolet for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Backing Earnhardt’s efforts during the weekend will be cap and apparel brand Flexfit.
Atlanta marks the sight of a reunification for Jeffrey Earnhardt and JDM, who’s relationship dates back to 2014, when Earnhardt drove full-time for the South Carolina based team.
This season, Earnhardt returns to the track on a part-time basis, in which he will rotate between the stable’s No. 15 and No. 0 Chevrolets.
Flexfit Senior Vice President Brian Yang was ecstatic at the opportunity to work with Earnhardt and JDM when it arose.
“Flexfit, a leading name in the headwear industry, is honored to be sponsoring Jeffrey Earnhardt, a member of the renowned Earnhardt family and a long-time Flexfit fan,” said Yang. “We are excited to continue this partnership with Jeffrey and wish his team the best of luck on their upcoming races. We are thrilled to be part of the racing community and share in the enthusiasm NASCAR fans have for racing, cars, and drivers.”
Last season, Earnhardt finished sixth at the historic intermediate track while driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. In seven series starts in 2019, Earnhardt notched three top-10 finishes, and he looks to return to the spotlight once again this weekend.
“I’m really excited to be returning to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend in the Flexfit Chevrolet for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller,” said Earnhardt. “There’s been a lot of effort from a lot of people to get back on track and I’m going to do my best to maximize that effort.”
