Jeffrey Earnhardt has finished just inside and outside of 30th at Bristol Motor Speedway in two starts with a 32nd last spring and a 29th in the summer.
The good news is that Earnhardt finished better than he started in both races. In the summer Bass Pro Shops Night Race, what he earned for his 29th were supplemented by nine place-differential points and that made a huge difference. Apr 21 - 1:43 PM

Jeffrey Earnhardt has failed to finish his last four efforts this year, with two accidents, a blown engine, and a transmission failure since Phoenix International Raceway.

Earnhardt also crashed out of the Daytona 500, which means he has been running at the end of only two races in seven attempts this year. His best result when he has been running at the end of a race was 32nd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, so it is best for fantasy owners to let him sit in the garage for a few more weeks.
Apr 14 - 9:36 AM

Jeffrey Earnhardt has made two previous starts at Texas Motor Speedway and has shown slow improvement. He finished 35th last spring and was 34th in the fall.

Frankly, even a 33rd this week would be a good result for the driver of the No. 33. He qualified last among 31 cars that were able to take time and he is going to lose considerable place-differential points before the afternoon is complete.
Apr 8 - 12:02 PM

Jeffrey Earnhardt has had three DNFs in the first five races of 2017.

Earnhardt crashed at Daytona International Speedway, broke a transmission at Phoenix International Raceway, and had an engine failure at Auto Club Speedway. Even when he’s been running, he has not been particularly strong and his best result was a 32nd in the Kobalt 400.
Mar 31 - 8:37 PM

Jeffrey Earnhardt has made three previous starts on two-mile tracks with three mid-30s finishes as a result.

Earnhardt’s best finish last year on this track type came at Auto Club Speedway. He was 34th after starting 39th. Even with the five place-differential points added to his total, he was not fantasy relevant.
Mar 21 - 8:51 PM

Jeffrey Earnhardt will make his second Phoenix International Raceway start in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this weekend.

Earnhardt finished 33rd last fall, driving the No. 32 GoFAS racing entry. He was six laps off the pace, but running at the end. Two weeks previous, he finished 33rd at Martinsville Speedway—another short, flat track—so that is about where he should be expected to run this week’s Camping World 500.
Mar 13 - 7:59 PM

Jeffrey Earnhardt will struggle to earn a top-30 finish this week at Las Vegas. In eight previous starts, he has earned only two such results.

He might finish in the mid- to low-30s, however, and that could make him a provisionally good value if he qualifies at the very back of the pack and if he fits a niche on one’s roster. Earnhardt was 33rd in last year’s Kobalt 400.
Mar 7 - 5:33 PM

Jeffrey Earnhardt has earned two top-30 finishes in seven starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

His best effort netted a 26th-place finish. That came at Charlotte Motor Speedway last year after he started 38th. Fantasy owners can take some consolation in the fact that he has been running at the end of every race he started on this track type, but that also means his results are not negatively skewed by misfortune.
Mar 3 - 12:45 PM

The Daytona 500 will be Jeffrey Earnhardt’s second career plate race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series; he finished 34th in last fall’s Hellmann’s 500.

Earnhardt made last year’s start for BK Racing and will be teamed up with a new organization this year. While anything can happen on a plate track, there are simply less risky options for a low-budget dark horse.
Feb 19 - 12:39 PM

Circle Sport with The Motorsports Group announced Monday on Twitter that Jeffrey Earnhardt will drive the team’s No. 33 car for the Daytona 500. The team has a charter, guaranteeing Earnhardt a spot in the field.

Earnhardt has never competed in the Daytona 500 but has raced in other events at Daytona International Speedway. He’s driven in the Rolex 24 twice, competed in one Camping World Truck Series race, run three Xfinity races and competed in four Cup events. His best finish was a seventh-place result in the 2011 Truck race. Last season, Earnhardt competed in 22 Cup races, driving 19 races for Go Fas Racing and three for BK Racing. His best finish was 27th at Richmond. Earnhardt, nephew of Dale Earnhardt Jr., has 24 career Cup starts.

Jeffrey Earnhardt will not return to the No. 32 in 2017 as the team focuses on a single driver.

Can-Am will return as a sponsor for 13 weeks, but the team expects to put a single driver in the car. In 2016 eight different drivers were in the car, including Earnhardt for 19 events. Car owner Archie St Hilaire believes chemistry can be better achieved with one driver and experience suggests he is correct.

Jeffrey Earnhardt will make a third start in the No. 83 this week, after campaigning that ride in back-to-back 34th-place finishes.

Earnhardt was pressed into service in this car most recently at Texas Motor Speedway when Matt DiBenedetto had to sit out because of a concussion protocol. His other start in the No. 83 came at Talladega SuperSpeedway. Meanwhile, DiBenedetto will race the No. 49 with owner points from the No. 93, and must qualify on time.

For the first time in 20 races this year, Jeffrey Earnhardt finished worse than he started at Texas Motor Speedway.

Even that race requires an asterisk because he was driving in relief of Matt DiBenedetto who was forced to sit out via NASCAR’s concussion protocol. Earnhardt has finished exactly where he started four times, most recently at Darlington Raceway when he was 38th from 38th.

Jeffrey Earnhardt will almost certainly earn positive place-differential points this week because in 20 career Cup races, he has never finished worse than he started.

In 2016, Earnhardt improved only 4.4 positions per race to finish 34th, so he is not earning much. Sometimes it is a comfort to know that the bargain basement driver is not going to cost points, however.

Jeffrey Earnhardt will make his restrictor-plate, superspeedway debut this week in the No. 83 BK Racing entry.

His normal ride will be campaigned by Bobby Labonte, while Matt DiBenedetto—the regular driver of the No. 83—will be moved into a third entry for the team. Forty-two cars are entered for 40 positions this week at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but Earnhardt is guaranteed to make his debut because this is one of the charter teams. As the grandson of Dale Earnhardt Sr., Earnhardt has great genes, but that is not enough to make him an attractive dark horse.
