MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 9, 2018) – During its annual kickoff luncheon on Thursday, JR Motorsports took care of a little unfinished business from the championship season of 2017.

The team’s NASCAR Xfinity Series championship rings were handed out to team members as the final act of the gathering, which recapped the company’s second championship and previewed the 2018 season for the team owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kelley Earnhardt Miller and Rick Hendrick.

Driver William Byron handed out the Josten’s rings to his teammates before returning to Hendrick Motorsports, where he is preparing for his first Daytona 500 adventure in the NASCAR Cup Series. All JRM employees received the mementos as well.

One special presentation capped the celebration. Crew chief Dave Elenz presented Pete Wright, a longtime employee at HMS in the R&D department, with the ring earned by his son Adam. Adam, a mechanic on the No. 5 Chevrolet team at JRM, lost his life last year in an automobile accident.

Drivers Elliott Sadler, Michael Annett and Tyler Reddick were on hand, as were JRM Late Model drivers Josh Berry and Sam Mayer. Justin Allgaier was in Florida, racing his UMP Modified in the Dirt Car Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park.
