“Thrilled to have Skuttle Tight back on board this weekend,” offered Little. “They have been a great partner for us over the two seasons and Chad Kompelien has been one of our biggest supporters, so we’re looking forward to another opportunity to better our seventh-place run from Texas last November.”
“Parker FiberNet is a new partner for JJL Motorsports this season and I appreciate them expanding their schedule to support us this weekend at Teas Motor Speedway. David Parker and his family have really jumped into the sport with two feet and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to bring them home a strong finish under the lights.”
The Sherrills Ford, N.C-based team will also bring on a new partner for the fifth Truck Series race of the season. Dkota Investments, a national company that provides build-to-suit facilities in the warehouse and mixed-use segments for large multi-national corporations, as well as smaller, privately owned businesses.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Russ Leitch and Dkota Investments to JJL Motorsports,” said team principal Jason Little. “It’s a positive step for our team to bring a new sponsor to the table and we hope that we’re able to expand our relationship throughout the 2019 season.”
Looking forward, JJL Motorsports continues to work hard on securing additional partners and sponsors for the 2019 season including upcoming races at Dover (Del.) International Speedway and Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in May.
“It takes a lot of people to get our No. 97 Ford to the track each week and we can’t do it without all our great supporters and partners,” added Jason Little. “We would like to also welcome back Jim Davis and Steve Biddle, both have been critical supporters of the program for several years.
“It’s a huge effort that goes from top to bottom. We are one big family who strive for perfection and to get the best result possible. Texas was kind to us last fall and we’re hoping for more of the same on Friday night.”
