GAFFNEY, S.C. – Jesse Little has joined JD Motorsports with Gary Keller for a full season effort in the NASCAR Xfinity Series next year.
Little, a third-generation racer from Sherrills Ford, N.C., cut his teeth racing most recently in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series for his family-owned team. In 30 Truck Series starts, Little earned seven top-10 finishes, with a best-career finish of sixth. Little recently announced his JJL Motorsports team would be closing its doors at the end of the season.
Though he does not have an Xfinity Series start to his credit, he has competed in two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races.
Little is the son of Chad Little, a six-time NASCAR Xfinity Series race winner and current Managing Director, Technical Inspection/Officiating of NASCAR.
“I am beyond excited to have the privilege to race full time in 2020 for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” the younger Little said. “It’s something I have honestly dreamed about since I can remember. They are a successful, established team that I can’t wait to begin working with. I hope to represent Johnny, the JDM brand, and especially all their partners to the highest satisfaction.”
Following Little to the Xfinity Series will be longtime partners SkuttleTight, Dkota Investments, Parker Fiber Net and Visit Kingsport, who have supported him throughout the Truck Series ranks.
