EARNHARDT HITS THE ROAD AT THE GLEN
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – It’s time to hit the road.
Jeffrey Earnhardt and the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team roll into New York State this weekend to race in the Zippo 200 at The Glen, one of three road-course races on this year’s Nationwide Series schedule.
Earnhardt finished 23rd earlier this year at Road America. After this week’s race at the Glen, the series moves on to the Mid-Ohio road course next week.
“We’re looking to improve our road-course stuff from the Road America race,” Earnhardt said. “We didn’t have quite what we needed there, and I’m pretty new to road courses, so it took some time. But we’re looking to be much better this weekend at the Glen.”
Earnhardt’s No. 4 Chevrolet will carry Great Outdoors RV Superstore colors for Saturday’s race.
Nationwide practice is scheduled Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 2:10 p.m. Qualifying runs will begin at 9:40 a.m. Saturday, with the race to follow at 2:15 p.m.
