SHERRILLS FORD, North Carolina (May 26, 2017)-After weeks of hard work in preparing their No. 97 Toyota Tundra for its 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut, Jesse Little and the crew at JJL Motorsports are eager to head to Dover International Speedway for the running of the Bar Harbor 200 on June 2.
Heading to Dover, Little's team has a new alliance with Gaunt Brothers Racing and Triad Racing Technologies that has been key to the JJL Motorsports Dover entry. Little also continues its long standing relationship and support from Performance Friction Brakes as it heads into Dover.
"This is going to be a great weekend for us and we're grateful for the JJL Motorsports team alliance we have with Triad Racing Technologies and Gaunt Brothers Racing; as well the support from Performance Friction Brakes. Having all of them supporting what we do is an awesome show of faith in what we're doing with our organization," Little said. "We're going into Dover ready to compete and bring home a strong finish for our team and fans."
Capturing a strong finish at Dover comes with knowledge of the tricky concrete surface. Since 2012 Little has competed on the one-mile Delaware track in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, and in 2015 during his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Debut; it's certainly one of his favorite on the NASCAR circuit.
"Dover has always been a good track for our team and myself as a driver. With the grip there it gives you a great feel heading into the corner and whether the car is handling well or you need to make some adjustments. We're expecting some really good speed out of our Toyota Tundra this weekend and looking for a great qualifying run that allows us to line-up towards the front of the field. From there we'll get after it in the race and bring home a solid finish."
From Dover JJL Motorsports plans to head to Iowa Speedway on June 23 for its second race of the 2017 season on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
This season the Truck series is all about getting maximum effort out to the team and equipment JJL Motorsports brings to the track and I believe we're on the right track to accomplishing that goal. The month of June is a busy one for our team, but we've prepared to tackle the challenges of Dover and Iowa and can't wait to get started."
