Jeffrey Earnhardt is a fourth-generation NASCAR driver. Currently, he drives the No. 0 Chevrolet Camaro for JD Motorsports. When the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Darlington Raceway next week for Throwback weekend, Earnhardt, 31, will have some familiar family colors on his car.
Earnhardt’s No. 0 KSDT.com machine will look like the Bass Pro Shops gold scheme that his grandfather Dale Earnhardt showcased in the 1998 All-Star Race and his father Kerry Earnhardt ran in 2004.

Earnhardt has quietly built a solid season with JD Motorsports. In 17 starts, he has accumulated three top-15 finishes and nine top-20’s. Earnhardt’s best finish of the year was a 12th-place effort at Texas Motor Speedway.
He and his team will hope to utilize some throwback swagger in an effort to score their first top-10 of the season next weekend in the Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 at Darlington.
