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.

BK Racing has announced that Jeffrey Earnhardt will be driving the No. 83 Starter Toyota Camry at Talladega Superspeedway on October 23, 2016.

He will be one of three BK Racing cars on track for the Alabama 500 as he joins teammates David Ragan and Matt DiBenedetto. Said Earnhardt. "It's my first Cup Series race at Talladega, my first race with BK Racing, the first time anyone from our family competes in a Toyota and it's the 25th anniversary of my grandfather's victory at Talladega." Doug Richert, former crew chief for Dale Earnhardt Sr. will be the crew chief on the No. 83 at Talladega.-140 BUZZ

Jeffrey Earnhardt finished 28th after starting 38th in his most recent attempt on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. He missed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 two weeks ago at Chicagoland Speedway, so his last attempt came at Kentucky Speedway.

Several surprising drivers experienced their best result in this race. Kentucky recently repaved and slightly reconfigured, which made it an even playing field for all drivers. The venerable Charlotte Motor Speedway will not have the same list of dark horses.

Rookie Jeffrey Earnhardt has made one previous start at Dover International Speedway. He finished 35th this spring after starting 39th.

Earnhardt was 64 laps off the pace at the end of the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, but still running at the end. He earned a little experience. It was not enough to make him an easy driver to handicap and he should only be used as roster-filler for players who are willing to throw away one driver.

Jeffrey Earnhardt scored a career-best 27th-place finish at Richmond International Raceway two weeks ago in the Federated Auto Parts 400 after starting 40th.

That is significant for this week’s handicap because it came in both his most recent start and on a short, flat track. Lightning will not strike the same place twice, but Earnhardt could earn a result in the low-30s and earn place-differential points with a little luck. In 16 previous starts, he has never finished worse than he started.

Jeffrey Earnhardt crashed in the final minutes of the first practice session for the Pure Michigan 400. He will be forced into a backup with no practice for qualification.

Only 40 cars are entered, so Earnhardt is not in jeopardy of missing the show. He will almost certainly line up last, however, and likely gain positions only by attrition.

Thirty-something defines Jeffrey Earnhardt’s two-mile track record. In two previous starts at Auto Club Speedway and Michigan International Speedway, he qualified 39th and 38th respectively before finishing 34th and 37th. And of course, he did this in the No. 32 GO FAS Racing ride.

Winning one’s league is not always about successfully predicting winners. A fantasy player needs to know about everyone in the field and determine how their success or failure in a race will impact the big picture.

Jeffrey Earnhardt has made three starts on short tracks during his career and so far, Bristol Motor Speedway has been the site of his best result. He finished within two laps of the leader in the Food City 500 this spring in 32nd.

Earnhardt was 40th last fall at Richmond International Raceway and 38th on that same track this spring, but the closest he came to completing the distance there was eight laps. In the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race he will gain experience, but it is unlikely he will be a good value.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeffrey Earnhardt (No. 32 Ford) finished seventh in Sunday's NASCAR Pinty's Series (NPS) Can-Am 50 Tours at Circuit de Trois-Rivieres in Quebec.

He qualified the No. 36 Can-Am/Kappa/Cyclops Gear/Lou's BBQ Ford 18th in the lineup. In his first ever start in the series, he was running in the top-five for several laps among the NPS regulars, completed all 50-laps run but faded to seventh near the end of the road course race.
