JD Motorsports with Gary Keller has announced the addition of Jeffrey Earnhardt to the teams NASCAR Xfinity Series driver lineup for 2020.

It’s important to note that this isn’t Earnhardt’s first run with the team as he ran the full schedule for the team back in 2014. During that time span he captured seven top-20 finishes and went on to place 18th in the final driver points standings that year.

With that said, he will compete in 12 events for JDM in 2020 with the team continuing to work on additional sponsorship to increase Earnhardt’s opportunities.

In 2019, he notched one top-five, and three top-10 finishes in only seven starts.  He had a season best finish of third at Charlotte Motor Speedway last May.

“I am really thankful to Johnny Davis and the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team for having me on-board this season,” said Earnhardt in a team press release. “These guys work hard every week and they’ve demonstrated the ability and desire to compete. I am looking forward to getting back on track this season.”

Earnhardt’s car number will be announced at a later date, along with sponsor information with his season kicking off with JDM at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 14th.
