Jeffrey Earnhardt Returns With Viva Motorsports at Talladega

Viva Motorsports will have FW1 Waterless Wash & Wax on the side of the No. 55 Chevrolet Camaro at the Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday. It marks the first time this season that the company will be on the ride. Viva Auto Group and Bestway Autos will also be featured on the car.

Jeffrey Earnhardt will join Viva Motorsports on Saturday to pilot the No. 55 Chevrolet. Earnhardt has four previous starts this season with the team. His best finish came at the Bristol Motor Speedway after a 15th-place run. His previous best came in the season opener at the Daytona International Speedway with a 16th-place effort.

Earnhardt, among other drivers, have shared the No. 55 ride this season. Team owner Jamie Dick is still sidelined after being diagnosed with new onset diabetes in March. After the race at the Phoenix International Raceway in March, which marked his second start of the season, Dick had to be hospitalized after the race.

Last Friday at Richmond, Brandon Gdovic made his second NASCAR Xfinity Series start with the racing team. Gdovic brought the Chevrolet home with a 30th-place finish after starting 29th. In his debut with the team at the Texas Motor Speedway, nearly two weekends ago, Gdovic brought home a 26th.
