After scoring his first career top-10 finish last year, Jesse Little is set to expand his involvement in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

“We’re excited about the changes and the future of JJL Motorsports,” said team principal Jason Little. “We’ve been very fortunate to have some great relationships in the Truck Series since our beginning, but 2018 is looking to be our most productive yet both on and off the track.”

Little will drive the No. 97 family-owned JJL Motorsports Ford in a minimum of eight to 10 events, with room for the schedule to grow. They will make their 2018 season debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway in February’s Active Pest Control 200 benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

“I can’t thank my uncle, Matt and everyone on the JJL Motorsports team enough for making these huge strides,” he said. “I can’t wait to get on the track at Atlanta and see what we pull off. We’re putting all of our eggs into one basket this season and I think that focus and dedication will not only allow us to accomplish our goals, but raise the bar even further as the year races on. Can’t wait.”

The new year sees them switch manufactures, going from Toyota to Ford, and acquiring equipment from Brad Keselowski Racing over the off-season. 

JJL Motorsports also announced that Matt Noyce will serve as the crew chief, and they are looking to possibly field other drivers in both NASCAR truck and ARCA events. 

“Jesse is going to be a huge part of the JJL Motorsports scope this year, but we’re eager and actively pursing working with other drivers who want to make that next leap in competitive equipment or established drivers looking for competitive equipment,” added Jason Little. “Our focus is the Truck Series this year, but we’re also going to run some ARCA too. For sure, we’re planning to run the ARCA race at Charlotte with Jesse, but that opportunity for someone else to jump in and drive will be an option.”
