Jeffrey Earnhardt will attempt to make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut September 12 at Richmond International Raceway in the Federated Auto Parts 400 in a Ford for Go Green Racing. Earnhardt is the son of Kerry Earnhardt and grandson of the late Dale Earnhardt Sr. He is the nephew of NASCAR’s most popular driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. The 26-year old revealed his plans on the NBC Sports Network program NASCAR America Thursday night.
“I’ve spent the past few years around the Xfinity (Series) really learning all that I can and getting all the seat time I can,” Earnhardt said. “The biggest goals for me is to go out, be competitive, of course, that’s the only reason we do it, but also to learn as much as I can and finish all the laps that I can.”
Earnhardt has made 76 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series MORE>>>
