EARNHARDT READY FOR LOUDON
LOUDON, N.H. – Jeffrey Earnhardt will be hoping to get back on track as the Nationwide Series rolls into New Hampshire Motor Speedway for Saturday’s Sta-Green 200, the 17th race of the season.
Earnhardt finished 33rd last week at Daytona International Speedway but remains 17th in Nationwide driver points as the summer stretch of the season continues.
“We didn’t get the finish we wanted at Daytona, but we feel good about our car for this week,” Earnhardt said. “Loudon is short but fast, and it’s a track where the driver can make a ton of difference. We’re looking for better numbers there this weekend.”
Earnhardt has raced only one time at the 1.058-mile track.
The Nationwide field will have a pair of practices Friday – at 1:10 p.m. (ET) and 3 p.m. Saturday’s qualifying is scheduled at 10:10 a.m., followed by the race at 3:30 p.m.
