JRM kicked off our 2019 season Tuesday afternoon with our annual luncheon and there were many special guests in attendance.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 6, 2019) – The 2019 NASCAR season is almost upon us, and on Tuesday, JR Motorsports held its annual Kickoff Luncheon at the NASCAR Technical Institute, a stone’s throw from the JRM campus.

General Manager and co-owner Kelley Earnhardt Miller, along with team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr., previewed the coming season with the assistance of NXS drivers Michael Annett (No. 1 Chevrolet) and Noah Gragson (No. 9 Chevrolet). Jeb Burton, Zane Smith, Ryan Truex and Ryan Preece, who will share the No. 8 Chevrolet for the majority of the season, were also on hand. Late Model pilots Josh Berry and Adam Lemke were on stage as well for the driver Q&A session. As he was last year, driver Justin Allgaier was dirt racing in Florida and could not attend, but sent along a video to express his excitement about the start of another season and another chance at the title.

Fresh off winning its second straight championship and third in the past five seasons, JRM capped its offseason with a video capturing the long journey to a dominant victory in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, which saw Tyler Reddick win the race and the championship.

Stay tuned for more information about JRM, its teams and partners in the coming weeks.
