JD Motorsports plans four full-time teams

Johnny Davis has been in the NASCAR realm for over three decades. In 2018, though, he plans on expanding JD Motorsports, running four full-time NASCAR XFINITY Series entries for the first time.

JD Motorsports is coming off a season in which Ross Chastain finished 13th in the championship standings, picking up back-to-back finishes of sixth or better during the summer races at Iowa Speedway and Daytona International Speedway. Additionally, Garrett Smithley and Harrison Rhodes both ran at least 31 of the 33 events, with a rotating fourth team competing in 11 races.

In 2018, Chastain is signed on for his fourth consecutive season with JDM to pilot the No. 4 car, while Vinnie Miller is slated to run the No. 01 machine for the entire campaign. In 2017, Miller made his XFINITY debut at Chicagoland Speedway, finishing 29th.

Davis confirmed the company is putting together a deal to have Joe Nemechek, Reed Sorenson, along with other former Cup drivers run the No. 15 machine. As for the No. 0 car, it’s going to come down to whoever brings funding to the table.
