Are you ready for a car that will be easy to spot in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco Uniforms 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway? Jesse Little will be sporting the bright green and black colors of his long-time partner Skuttle Tight on the No. 78 BJ McLeod Motorsports machine.
Little made the announcement on Friday with a press release.
“I am thankful to head into Las Vegas with the familiar Skuttle Tight colors on the car,” Little said in the release. “Chad and Skuttle Tight have been supportive of my racing career for many years which means a lot to me. I am excited to get back to Las Vegas where I have had some good finishes, and I am looking forward to a great weekend with my B.J. McLeod Motorsports team.”
Skuttle Tight says this will be their first two primary races of 2021, eluding that there will be more green and black cars for Little as the season races on.
“We decided to add Las Vegas and Phoenix as the first two primary races for 2021 with Jesse Little and his new team B. J. McLeod Motorsports” said Skuttle Tight President Chad Kompelien. “Jesse and his team have been working hard to find new supporters this year and we are glad to jump on board for the next two races. We value the great relationship with Jesse and appreciate the challenge he faces securing sponsorship and partners each race so are happy to support Jesse for the next two races.”
For now, Skuttle Tight will join Little as a primary sponsor for the next two events at Vegas and Phoenix Raceway.
Little, who moved to BJMM in the offseason, has had a decent start to the 2021 campaign.
In the season-opener at Daytona, Little finished 17th in what was a wild race. The following weekend, Little snagged a top-15 with a 14th-place effort at the Daytona Road Course.
Little did have a rough day at Homestead, where he finished two laps off he pace in 32nd, but he’ll look to get back to the performance that had him 12th in the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship standings a couple of weeks ago.
And there is reason to be hopeful that a turnaround will happen this weekend. In this race, one year ago, Little scored an impressive 14th-place finish while driving the No. 4 JD Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro.
