Jesse Little Will Return to No. 97 Truck Team Under New Diversified Motorsports Ownership


The purchase has been officially completed of JJL Motorsports by Diversified Motorsports Enterprises, according to a press release from the team on Friday.

According to the release, the team hopes to start their first race at Daytona in February.

“This is a proud moment for Diversified Motorsports Enterprises,” said team principal Logan Puckett. “We appreciate Jason (Little) and everyone at JJL Motorsports for making the transition seamless and I’m excited about the outlook for our race team.”

The team, which has found a shop to call home in Charlotte, NC, will have a familiar face behind the wheel — Jesse Little.

Little, who will be running full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JD Motorsports, will also reprise his role as the driver of the No. 97 truck in 2020.

The team’s plan is to run the majority of the schedule in 2020.

“We have big plans for the season but we’re going to be thoughtful and attentive to our approach with everything we do,” added Puckett. “Being a young owner in the Truck Series, I’m eager to be competitive out of the box while also being ambitious with our marketing with the intention to bring new business to business partners into NASCAR and build our team towards a full schedule in 2021 and beyond.”

According to the release, announcements on sponsorship should come in January.
