Jesse Little; JJL Motorsports prepared to roll the dice in Las Vegas debut
SHERRILLS FORD, N.C. – Back on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) trail, Jesse Little and his part time JJL Motorsports team head to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway eying their fifth top-10 finish of the season in Friday night’s World of Westgate 200.
Preparing to compete in four of the remaining six Truck Series races this season, the Sherrills Ford, N.C.-based team hopes to roll the dice in Sin City and gain some momentum for the final stretch.
“I’m really excited to compete at Las Vegas,” said Little. “I’ve never been there, but I feel really good about the truck we are bringing, and we’ve worked hard to make our mile and a half program better since the beginning of the year.
“Hopefully, we can have a competitive finish on Friday night and carry that towards the end of the year.”
With the intent to compete at Las Vegas, Martinsville, Texas Motor Speedway and the season-finale at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway to complete their season, Little is optimistic his team can put themselves in a position to not only be in the spotlight but perhaps pull an upset and win a race.
“I think we can do it,” added Little. “My crew chief Matt (Noyce) works day and night to make our program better, my JJL Motorsports guys are hardcore racers who want to win just as bad. Plus, we’ve been fortunate enough to have the support of Ford Performance this season and that relationship has helped us to be competitive.
“I think Las Vegas will give us an opportunity to put ourselves back on the map after our bad luck at Bristol and contend for another strong finish.”
Little and JJL Motorsports will also welcome the support of FASTSIGNS® for Las Vegas.
