Garrett Smithley, who has driven the No. 0 Chevrolet Camaro SS for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller (JDM) since 2016, will return for another full time season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS). Smithley, who hails from Peachtree City, Georgia, comes off a season that included highlights of one top five, two top ten, and thirteen top twenty finishes.
“I’m so excited to be back with JD Motorsports with Gary Keller. I’ve been ready for this season since the checkered flag at Homestead last year. I’ve been working hard this offseason to make my 4th year with JDM the best ever, I think it will be. I’m so blessed to be giving the opportunity to race here by Johnny and all my sponsors. Daytona will be my 100th Xfinity start and all but two of those races have been at JDM. It’s an amazing race team and family, and I can’t wait to get this season going.” said Garrett, who is eager to be back with the team.
Sponsorship announcements for Smithley’s 2019 NXS campaign will be released shortly, so stay tuned for further information.
Smithley and the rest of the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller race team are preparing feverishly for Daytona, a track that saw the team out of Gaffney, South Carolina earn their first ever top five finish in last year’s season opener. They believe that this season’s racecar will be just as fast – if not faster – than the one brought to the track last year.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series season kicks off on Saturday, February 16th, with the running of the NASCAR Racing Experience 300 at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. Be sure to tune into FOX Sports 1 to see Garrett back behind the wheel of the No. 0 Camaro SS.
