Three years after Jesse Little earned rookie honors in NASCAR's K&N Pro Series East, limited funding has resulted in the third-generation driver splitting his time between two NASCAR series.
In 2016, the UNC Charlotte freshman will focus on five NASCAR K&N races and six to eight NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events. He made his truck series debut last May at Dover. He qualified ninth, but had to settle for a 30th-place finish due to a crash before the halfway mark. He competed in three more truck races (Chicago, Texas and Homestead, Fla.) with his best finish of 14th coming in the season finale at Homestead. This year, the first truck race on Little's schedule is the Feb. 27 event at Atlanta. The Little family will field the truck entry out of their Sherrills Ford shop.-jayski.com Jan 27 - 4:05 PM
