Drew Herring To Drive For JGL Racing At Dover

JGL Racing has added Drew Herring to the organizations "Young Guns" program. The Benson, North Carolina native will drive the team’s No. 24 Toyota at the upcoming Ollie's Bargain Outlet 200 NASCAR XFINITY Series event at Dover International Speedway on Saturday, May 14.  

The race will be Herring's 16th career start in the XFINITY Series. 

"I am really thankful for the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the No. 24 Toyota for JGL Racing," said Herring.  "I look forward to working with everyone in Dover for the first time.  Dover is a tough track and things happen fast there.  It will be important for us to work well together from the very first lap so we get to know each other well and build a strong relationship.  I have had the pleasure of being around the team in the shop and I know they are a hard working group of guys.  I am confident we will all work together well and get better with every lap we make in practice, qualifying and the race." 

In his previous 15 NASCAR XFINITY Series starts, Herring has earned two Pole Awards, five Top-10 and one Top-5 finish.  He also has one career start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to his credit, which netted him another Top 10 finish. 

"We are excited to add Drew to the JGL Racing organization and The Young Guns program," added James Whitener, owner of JGL Racing.  "While he has limited starts in the Series, he has countless hours of seat time as a test driver.  We feel that he is a perfect fit for the Young Guns program and we look forward to having him behind the wheel of our No. 24 Toyota in Dover." 

Herring joins Matt Tifft, Corey Lajoie and Brandon McReynolds as participants in the JGL Racing Young Guns program.
