JR Motorsports has its eyes on the prize as it gears up for two races this weekend in New Hampshire.
In 21 Nascar Sprint Cup Series, the race on Sunday, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, CARCHEX spokesman Dale Jr. has scored five top-five finishes, eight top-10s and has led for more than 350 laps there. Dale also ranks fifth in the driver rating category, according to NASCAR’s loop data statistics, with a score of 100.7 out of a possible 150.
“New Hampshire is one of the smaller tracks we go to, and I like racing on the shorter, flatter tracks. We had a real good setup there last year so I’m looking forward to going back there,” said Earnhardt.
Dale Jr., backed by Crew Chief, Lance McGrew, will drive the 88 car with a new chassis.
Emporia, Va. native, Elliott Sadler will begin the first of a 10-race stint driving JRM’s No. 88 Realtree Outfitters Chevrolet at Loudon. Sadler, a NASCAR veteran with 126 starts in the Nationwide Series is slated to compete for JRM at O’Reilly Raceway Park on July 24, Michigan International Raceqay on Aug. 14, and Richmond International Raceway on Sept. 10.
“This is going to be a cool week for me. It’s been about a year since I’ve driven double duty with the Cup and Nationwide Series, but I’m looking forward to it. I’ve talked to Dale Jr. about running the 88 car for a while, and it just happened to work out this way. JR Motorsports has a great partner in Realtree Outfitters and I’m pumped to debut their car in New Hampshire. It’s a perfect match for both JRM and Realtree. They’re a great sponsor and one that, as a hunter, I can really get behind. Everyone is really going ot like the camouflage look of this 88 car,” said Sadler.
Realtree Outfitters becomes the newest partner for JR Motorsports at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Realtree, the world’s leading camouflage designer, market, and licensor, will sponsor the No. 88 Chevrolet in five races this season starting at Loudon.
Sadler becomes the sixth driver to wheel JRM’s flagship No. 88 this season.
In six starts at the one-mile track of Loudon, Sadler earned one top-five, one top-10 finish and has led 20 laps.
