STATESVILLE, N.C. – Jordan Anderson Racing will expand into the NASCAR Xfinity Series this year with team owner and driver Jordan Anderson competing for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award.
Anderson will drive the No. 31 Bommarito Automotive Group Chevrolet Camaro SS in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The team will operate under the Chevrolet banner with cars acquired from Richard Childress Racing powered by ECR engines. Artie Haire will serve as crew chief for the organization after joining the team during the summer of 2020.
This will mark the team’s first season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series after competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for the last three seasons.
“It is absolutely amazing to see the doors that God has opened for us and this journey continues as we expand our organization to compete within the NASCAR Xfinity Series this year,” said Anderson.
“Our team has been incredibly blessed to have an amazing support group behind us that believe in what we are trying to build and develop for the future. Everyone within our team has worked tirelessly to put all these pieces together and I have faith that the effort will show when we compete at Daytona – and beyond. I am thankful to John Bommarito and the entire Bommarito family for their vision in making this new chapter possible, along with every single one of our team partners, as well as everyone at RCR and Chevrolet for their help in assisting us assemble a solid foundation for our team to start with.”
Details of other partners on the Jordan Anderson Racing No. 31 will be announced at a later date.
The No. 31 is a special combination of the No. 3, which Jordan Anderson Racing and Anderson have competed with in the Truck Series the last three years, and the No. 1 from when the Bommarito Automotive Group joined Anderson’s efforts in 2017 full-time while racing in the Truck Series.
The Bommarito Automotive Group has been a mainstay in the St. Louis marketplace for 50 years. Led by President John Bommarito, and his more than 900 team members, the Bommarito Automotive Group operates 20 automotive franchises and multiple collision centers throughout St. Louis making a Bommarito purchase experience possible in every St. Louis neighborhood.

Our family of employees and customers are honored, and excited, to have the Bommarito brand carried upon his No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro SS this season.
