Jesse Little will have Shriners Hospitals for Children on board his No. 78 car for multiple NASCAR Xfinity Series events, starting with the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, BJ McLeod Motorsports announced Feb. 10.
Shriners first teamed up with Little last season when he drove the No. 4 car for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller at Talladega Superspeedway.
“I can’t express how excited I am to have Shriners Hospitals for Children back on board for multiple races this year,” Jesse Little said in a team release. “We were able to partner for one race last year and it was an incredible experience allowing us to raise almost 25,000-plus in donations to Shriners Hospitals. That is what I’m most looking forward to this year, is utilizing BJ’s program and platform he has built in the Xfinity series to generate as much awareness to our donation campaign as possible. We are really hoping to exceed expectations on the racetrack as well!”
Little is entering his second full-time NXS season after earning two top 10s at Pocono Raceway and Daytona in 2020.
Shriners’ remaining races are yet to be announced.
