Sherrills Ford, North Carolina-native Jesse Little will have a new place to call home in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2021, as he will join B.J. McLeod Motorsports’ three-car operation next season as the full-time driver of the No. 78 Chevrolet Camaro.

“BJ & Jessica (McLeod) have placed an amazing opportunity in front of me,” said Jesse Little. “The strides that BJ McLeod Motorsports has made since its inception just a few short years ago are incredible. As the motorsports landscape continues to shift, I felt that it was important to align myself with an organization that acknowledges that shift and is working hard to improve all aspects of the organization. The foundation that has been laid by those before me, and those currently here is solid and we’re going to build on that foundation in a big way this year. I can’t wait to get started.”

The 23-year-old joins the organization after running his rookie season at JD Motorsports w/ Gary Keller, piloting the No. 4 and 15 Chevrolet Camaros full-time last season. Little earned two top-10 finishes for JD Motorsports, claiming 10th-place runs at Pocono Raceway and Daytona International Speedway (August).

In addition to his full-time slate in the NASCAR Xfinity Series last season, Little piloted the No. 97 Chevrolet Silverado for Diversified Motorsports Enterprises in three events last season, claiming a best finish of 21st-place at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.

“We’re excited to have Jesse join our organization,” said BJ McLeod. “He is a great addition to our team as we continue to grow and improve on and off the track. Jessica and I have great people working with us at BJ McLeod Motorsports and Jesse adds to that. He is a team player with support from fantastic partners, we are looking forward to the journey ahead of us.”
