JJL Motorsports, who have fielded the No. 97 truck in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series in recent seasons, announced that the team was for sale back in September.
According to a new race preview press release that was sent out by the team before this weekend’s race at Phoenix, it seems the team has found a buyer to take over the team.
The release states the following:
The No. 97 team is expected to continue to operate in 2020 under the leadership of a new owner.
Further details of the team’s plans for next season will be announced next week leading into Homestead-Miami Speedway race weekend.
“I’m really happy that my NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series team will have a new owner in the garage next season,” said team principal Jason Little.
More should be known about who will own the team going forward, when we reach Homestead-Miami Speedway next week.
