2021 Fantasy Outlook
This team is JR Motorsports' driver rotation entry. JRM fields the car for the full season, but rotates drivers throughout the schedule. Daniel Hemric and Jeb Burton were the chief pilots last season, and they nabbed 11 Top-5 and 19 Top-10 finishes. That speaks volumes of that duo's experience. The team will take a bit of a step back in 2021 as youngsters Berry and Mayer take over the No. 8 team. Berry is tabbed to race 12 events early in the schedule, and then Mayer will race many events in the second half of the season. They will be joined by team owner, Earnhardt Jr., who is poised to make his usual single start, likely in the Martinsville event. This team will see a bit of a downturn in performance this season due to the youth movement of their drivers, but they'll still compete at a very high level. Read Past Outlooks
Filling in for three Truck Series races
XFINITY Series
June 1, 2021
Berry will pilot the No. 25 Rackley W.A.R. Chevrolet Silverado at Texas, Nashville, and Pocono, Jordan Bianchi of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Berry takes over for veteran Timothy Peters, who agreed to mutually part ways with the team after not recording a single top-10 in the first 10 races of the season. Berry has just two scheduled Xfinity Series races left with JR Motorsports at Texas and Nashville before Sam Mayer turns 18 and is able to hop into the car at Pocono full-time going forward. It's possible Berry may stay on with Rackley W.A.R. for the rest of the season if he is unable to find another Xfinity Series ride, but nothing is confirmed yet.
