Jeffrey Earnhardt will drive the No. 26 Toyota Supra of Sam Hunt Racing in select races during the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. Sponsoring the car will be ForeverLawn.
“I’m really excited to be back in the Toyota camp. My past experience with them was incredible, and they do a great job supporting their drivers,” said Earnhardt. “Sam and I formed a nice friendship over the years, and I’m impressed with what he’s achieved in a short amount of time. I feel like we share the same work ethic, and both of us are working hard to achieve our dreams. Having ForeverLawn in our corner is truly a gift. They have become my family, and our relationship extends well beyond racing. We have three like minded parties working together towards a common goal. It’s going to be an exciting year.”
Earnhardt, 32, made 29 starts in the Xfinity Series last season driving for JD Motorsports. Across nine years he has made 131 starts in the series scoring a top-five and three top-ten finishes.
“Having Jeffrey join Sam Hunt Racing is really exciting for our entire team and the Toyota Racing family,” said Sam Hunt, the 28-year-old team owner. “Jeffrey is a great guy, and he’s someone I’ve always admired for how he carries himself on and off the track. He’s a great person, and his sponsors at ForeverLawn match a lot of what SHR stands for. It’s going to be a fun season with him and the ForeverLawn team, and we’re excited to get to work.”
