Earnhardt Lands XFINITY Ride With Viva Motorsports

Jeffrey Earnhardt will drive the No. 55 Fronius USA Chevrolet for Viva Motorsports in the 2015 NASCAR Xfinity Series, beginning with the season-opening Alert Today 300 at Daytona International Speedway.

Earnhardt, the grandson of Dale Earnhardt Sr., raced for JD Motorsports last season, highlighted by a 12th-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"Jeffrey is a great talent and he will bring a lot to our team on and off the racetrack," said team owner Jamie Dick. "With Viva Motorsports equipment, Fronius USA support, and Jeffrey behind the wheel, we will be a force to be reckoned with when the season kicks off."

Earnhardt expressed confidence the new partnership, saying, “After becoming friends last season, I knew Viva Motorsports was where I wanted to be. What Jamie has done with Viva Motorsports is incredible. What a lot of people don't know is Jamie is only 25 years old. He started with a couple cars and has built it into an awesome team. I can't say it enough how excited I am to be a part of this. Daytona can't get here fast enough.”

  1. I'd say it is good to have the last name of Earnhardt!
