Jesse Little; JJL Motorsports determined to shine at Charlotte Motor Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. – For Jesse Little and his JJL Motorsports team, Friday night’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway is their Super Bowl event.

Running a limited NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) schedule, the team takes great pride on every race they compete – but when it comes to Charlotte, it’s a prime opportunity to shine at their hometown track.

“I always look forward to Charlotte,” said Little. “It’s an important race for a lot of people. For a lot of my guys, this is their hometown race, so everyone’s morale is up because we feel like can go and put on a show on Friday night.”

Little, a native of Sherrills Ford, N.C. will make his NGOTS start at the 1.5-mile track on Friday night and looks to better his 16th place performance from last May.

“Charlotte’s an extremely fast track and the Trucks put on a great show there,” added Little. “It’s a relatively quick race, so we learned that track position is crucial for this race. We also need to make sure we keep our truck balanced as the track and weather conditions change throughout the day, especially with practice in the morning, qualifying in the afternoon and the race at night.

“We had a good truck last year and were in the hunt for a top-10 finish but had some late race obstacles that prevented us from getting there Despite those obstacles, we fought as a team, learned a lot and wound up with a decent finish.

“Hopefully we can take with what we learned last year and in our races this season and can get our first top-10 on Friday night.”

The team also hopes their performance on Friday night will spark the interest of a potential new marketing partner as the team will compete in the eighth race of the year without the benefit of a primary partner.

“We have a great team who can take a company’s dollar and stretch it a mile,” added Little. “We have a ton of races that we’d like to compete in this summer and surely would welcome the support.

“We know that strong performances will enable us the opportunity to bring new marketing partners to the table and I hope we can go to Charlotte and prove that.”

Without a primary partner, the team is still extremely thankful to have a slew of associate partners who will adorn the team’s truck for Little’s second Charlotte run.

Skuttle Tight, Parker FiberNet, Visit Kingsport, Grindstaff Rub, PFC Brakes and Dkota Investments will be showcased in Little’s 27th career start.

Looking forward, JJL Motorsports continues to work hard on securing additional partners and sponsors for the 2019 season including the upcoming race at Texas Motor Speedway and several races this summer.

“It takes a lot of people and even a bigger effort to get our No. 97 Ford to the track each week,” explained JJL Motorsports team principal Jason Little. “We continue to fight hard and go to the race track every week and give 100 percent. We’d like to increase our schedule this season but need the sponsorship support to make it happen.

“We’re doing a lot of things to try and bring new partners to the table, but we know that performance is everything and if we can go to Charlotte and run competitive, we have another opportunity to tell our story.”

The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 (134 laps| 201 miles) is the eighth of 23 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2019 schedule. Practice begins on Fri., May 17 from 9:05 a.m. – 9:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 10:35 a.m. – 11:25 p.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 4:35 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 8:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Jesse Little; JJL Motorsports ready to tame Monster Mile

DOVER, Del. – With his JJL Motorsports team feeling refreshed following nearly a five-week break from NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) competition, driver Jesse Little is feeling rejuvenated and ready to head to Dover (Del.) International Speedway for Friday afternoon’s JEGS 200.

The “Monster Mile” as it’s called has historically been one of Little’s best race tracks and while it’s timid high banks and incredibly fast speeds can be haunting to some for the driver of the No. 97 JJL Motorsports Ford F-150, he knows it’s one of his best opportunities to earn his first career Truck Series victory.

“I love Dover, always have,” said Little who will make his fourth start of 2019. “It’s been one of those race tracks for me that I’ve always run good – even if I don’t have the results to show for it, but it’s one of that tracks that suits me and I think we can go there and contend for a win.”

Two years ago, Little nearly pulled off an underdog upset before circumstances took him out of contention – but as Little has shown time and time ago, situations aren’t setbacks – they are just a bump in the road that leads to bigger and better things.

“I’m excited to go to Dover and have the opportunity to showcase ourselves front and center,” added Little. “The last two years we’ve had fast trucks and I know that we’ll have more of the same on Friday.

“Dover is a race that can go by in a hurry, so you really need to have a good balance where you can take advantage of track position and even sometimes wrestle the fuel mileage card too. Our plan is to unload with what we know and adjust our truck from there. The track will change a lot from practice to the race, but I think its something we’re ready for and we’re determined to earn our first top-10 finish of the year.”

The team also hopes their performance on Friday will spark the interest of a potential new marketing partner as the team will compete in the sixth race of the year without the benefit of a primary partner.

“We have a great team who can take a company’s dollar and stretch it a mile,” added Little. “We know that strong performances will enable us the opportunity to bring new marketing partners to the table and I hope we can go to Dover and prove that.”

Without a primary partner, the team is still extremely thankful to have a slew of associate partners who will adorn the team’s truck for Little’s fourth Dover run.

Skuttle Tight, Parker FiberNet, Visit Kingsport, Grindstaff Rub, PFC Brakes and new partner Dkota Investments will be showcased in Little’s 26th career start.

Looking forward, JJL Motorsports continues to work hard on securing additional partners and sponsors for the 2019 season including the upcoming race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway and several races this summer.

In addition to Skuttle Tight, JJL Motorsports will have associate sponsorship support from Parker FiberNet and new partner Dkota Investments.

“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.

Longtime JJL Motorsports partners Visit Kingsport, Grindstaff Rub and PFC Brakes will also support the team for Friday night’s race.

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.”

Look forward to working with my new crew chief Bill (Henderson. I’m excited for what’s ahead.”
