Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Jeffrey Earnhardt
Mark Taylor ranks drivers on the Xfinity series for 2022 as Noah Gragson looks to take home the title after contending until the final laps last season.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Earnhardt started roughly half the schedule last season, split among several different race teams. He rounded out 2018 in 10 starts with Gaunt Brothers Racing in the No. 96 Toyota. At the time of this writing that team's plans for this season haven't been announced, but it has been widely speculated that Earnhardt could return and race with them in 2019. In his part-time slate with GBR, he forged just one Top-25 finish vs. four finishes outside the Top 35. It was a challenging situation for Earnhardt and this small race team. If they resume the upcoming season with Earnhardt, it would likely be Mark Hillman calling the shots from atop the tool box.
Earnhardt was released by Circle Sport Racing at the end of last season. He's currently a free agent driver and looking for opportunities in the Cup Series in 2018.
Signed with Circle Sport – TMG Racing in early February. Looks like he’ll get most, if not the entire, season in the team’s No. 33 Chevrolet. Earnhardt has only 24 starts of Cup Series experience and not racing very competitively in those efforts. It will be a steep learning curve and big challenge for him to have much impact if he does race the full schedule. Earnhardt is a fan favorite for the obvious reason, but he’ll face a tough test with this small race team in 2017.
The youngest of the racing Earnhardts will make his move into NASCAR's top division in 2016. The son of Kerry Earnhardt and grandson of the late Dale Earnhardt will take the wheel of the No. 32 Ford of Go FAS Racing, and take on a heavy part-time schedule. It's expected to be somewhere between 20 and 32 events for the young driver. Earnhardt has 66 starts of Xfinity Series racing over the last six years, but for small ill-equipped teams. He also made just two Sprint Cup starts last season for this very same Go FAS Racing team. It's great to see another generation of the Earnhardt family make it to NASCAR's top level, but we have to be realistic about his chances to impact the series. Due to this team's small size and limited resources, the lack of experience of Earnhardt in Cup cars, the anticipated impact will be very small.
The 23-year-old son of Kerry Earnhardt will get his first taste of full-time action in the Nationwide Series this year. Earnhardt will compete for Rookie of the Year honors in the seat of GGR’s Ford Mustang. The grandson of the late Dale Earnhardt Sr. has only had 10 spot starts in this racing series over the last four years, so this season will be a crash-course in full season action. Earnhardt only managed a top finish of 21st last season, so it could be a long year competing with this small race team.
