JR Motorsports announced changes to the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedules for Dale Earnhardt Jr and Kasey Kahne.
Earnhardt was originally schedule to run the Aaron’s 312 at Talladega Superspeedway in May. Earnhardt Jr will now compete in the Dollar General 300 at Chicagoland Speedway in Sept. Kahne will, in turn, run at Talladega instead of Chicagoland. Both will run Chevys with sponsorship from Great Clips.
Earnhardt Jr said:
Kasey and I were chatting about our Nationwide Series schedules, and I was looking for more track time at a place like Chicago. Kasey mentioned how he would love a shot at winning at Talladega. Fortunately we have a partner like Great Clips that was willing to work with us. One of our 2013 goals at JR Motorsports is to be a better asset to Hendrick Motorsports. For me personally, this scheduling change helps us do just that.
