FORT WORTH, Texas – Jesse Little will return to his late model roots during a break in the NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule this summer.
Little, who drives the No. 78 for B.J. McLeod Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, will race a pro late model sponsored by AAA Sweeping and AAA Equipment in a pair of major events in the Northwest.
His first race will be the Summer Showdown, which takes place July 23-24 at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Wash. He’s also scheduled to compete in the Idaho 200 at Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho, on July 30-31.
‘We are excited to be able to partner with Jesse for two of the biggest late model races in the Northwest,” said Brett Sargent, president of AAA Sweeping and AAA Equipment. “This is a great opportunity to be able to put Jesse back in a late model and I think the fans are going to be excited to see him. We are proud that he will be representing AAA Sweeping and AAA Equipment for these two races.”
Little raced late models early in his career, competing in weekly and touring competition throughout the Southeast.
