Jeffrey Earnhardt signs 2011 Full Season NASCAR contract with Rick Ware Racing
November 18, 2010- Jeffrey Earnhardt Inc. (JEI) and Rick Ware Racing (RWR) have finalized a deal to place Jeffrey in the #1 truck during the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.
"This has been a long time coming and I'm so excited to get the opportunity to run a full season with Rick and the team. It's exciting to drive the #1 truck and I want to put that number at the top of the race results as soon as possible" Earnhardt said.
The 2010 season was spent qualifying at the various NASCAR tracks and that mission has been accomplished. Being the only 4th Generation athlete in professional sports with the most famous name in racing has some pressure but Earnhardt embraces that reality.
"There's some pressure but we have hard working people in our organizations and Rick has demonstrated that he's committed to the success of the team. We're looking forward to a complete race in Homestead and then its lots of practice and planning for our Run for Rookie of the Year in 2011. I hope to grow our fan base and give them reason to cheer for the #1" said Jeffrey. The Next Generation Earnhardt has arrived!
