Reports are strongly suggesting the possibility of Jeffry Earnhardt correlating with Dale Earnhardt Jr’s racing team JR Motorsports next year.
Jeffrey Earnhardt nephew of Dale Jr. is one who seems to be attracting lots of attention ever since it was announced that Josh Berry will drive the No. 4 Ford for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series beginning in 2024.
There are still no official confirmations or statements regarding the report.

Earnahrdt Jr. himself even directly hinted towards Jeffrey Earnhardt taking the seat in his team a couple of weeks ago on his podcast, Dale Jr. Download.
The Xfinity Series driver talked about the situation while he was conversing with the media about his JR Motorsports probability.
Speaking to Dalton Hopkins of FrontStretch, Earnhardt said, “It’s like anything it’s about money. You gotta have the funding. I’ve been blessed to have the partners I have… We got Erie Sports Center on the car this weekend. Just been very blessed for the partners I have.”
“But you know, it’s a big expense, and trying to find all the money to put all that together is the biggest factor to it. So, you know, we’ll see, you know, where it ends up.
Obviously, you know, it’d be a pretty, pretty cool opportunity to get to go drive for, drive for him and, to be in a competitive car like that every weekend would be pretty, be pretty fun.”

He added, “But yeah, there’s a, it’s that time of the year everyone’s talking. It’s, it’ll be interesting to see where everything ends up. But you know, that’s, that’s definitely one of the things on the table for sure.”
Discussions are ongoing to get Jeffrey in the seat of the No.8 with the appropriate financial backing according to sources.
