Diversified Motorsports Enterprises primed and ready for Truck Series return

CONCORD, N.C.: Nearly 10 weeks since the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season was halted because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the trucks will roar Tuesday night at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in the N.C. Education Lottery 200.

Diversified Motorsports Enterprises, a new team owned by entrepreneur Logan Puckett will compete in its second Truck Series race of the season and looks to build on a solid showing in the season-opening race at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Teletrac Navman, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider leveraging location-based technology and services for managing mobile assets will return as the team’s primary marketing partner for the third Truck Series race of the season. “

“We feel very blessed to be getting back to the race track, even if the circumstances aren’t perfect,” offered Puckett, one of the youngest Truck Series owners in the garage. “Our team has methodically putting a plan together both short term and long term and we look forward to the chance to show how much heart and passion this team has on Tuesday night at Charlotte.”

With NASCAR’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series schedule still in limbo due to the coronavirus, Puckett is determined to keep his initial plans front and center – running a limited schedule this season in preparation for a heavy schedule next year.

“We’re building this team for the future and while our schedule may change a little depending on what venues are announced by NASCAR – we’re just excited to be at the race track and represent a great partner like Teletrac Navman.”

The good news for Puckett is driver Jesse Little has two prior Truck Series starts at Charlotte’s 1.5-mile speedway with two solid top-16 finishes, including a 14th place effort last May with his family-owned JJL Motorsports team.

With Little’s experience and the leadership of crew chief Bruce Cook, the Diversified Motorsports Enterprises team has high hopes for their second career Truck Series race.

“I’m looking forward to Charlotte,” said Little. “It feels like a year since I’ve been in a truck, but I’ve been keeping up with Bruce and the team and they’re excited to get back to the track and see what we can.

“Charlotte is a fun but tough race. The draft is so important and the trucks can get so loose, but it puts on a great show. And while I’m bummed that fans won’t be able to be in the stands on Tuesday night, I think they are really going to enjoy what they see.”

Before climbing aboard his No. 97 Teletrac Navman Chevrolet Silverado, Little will compete in Monday night’s Xfinity Series race at Charlotte where the track time should be beneficial for his DME team.

Because of the temporary COVID-19 protocols administrated to the race teams at Charlotte, there won’t be any practice or qualifying which will put Little directly into race mode which could be a benefit from his hopeful 300-miles of racing on May 25.

“It’s crazy to just jump in the truck and go race, but there’s also a fun send-it mode for the drivers,” added Little. “Luckily, I’ll have some laps from the Xfinity Series car on Monday night and hopefully what I learn from the track conditions and all can be a benefit to put our DME team in a position for a strong finish in our second race together.

“I can’t thank Logan, Bruce and Teletrac Navman again enough for the opportunity to drive.”

To show their support this Memorial Day weekend, Diversified Motorsports Enterprises will sport a redesign of their television panel giving thanks to the Armed Forces for their continued dedication to serve our country.

“We are proud to recognize the men and women of the Armed Forces on Tuesday night,” added Puckett. “I’m surrounded by members of the military with family and friends and this was my way of showing my extreme gratitude to those brave men and women past, present and future for protecting our country so we can be at the race track!”

Following Charlotte, DME is hopeful to return to NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series competition at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway on Sat., June 6, 2020.

The N.C. Education Lottery 200 (134 laps| 201 miles) is the third of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. The 40-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 8:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). All times are local (Eastern).

Diversified Motorsports Enterprises energized ahead of Truck Series debut

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla: Diversified Motorsports Enterprises’ big week is here, and they are ready to deliver.

With new marketing partner Teletrac Navman, Logan Puckett’s Diversified Motorsports Enterprises team heads to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway looking for big results in their NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut.

Armed with the veterans of driver Jesse Little and crew chief Bruce Cook, the duo looks to take their wealth of experience and produce magical results in Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250.

“I’m so excited for our Diversified Motorsports Enterprises team,” said team owner Logan Puckett. “This is an awesome opportunity for me as a young, ambitious owner and to have the support of Teletrac Navman and the leadership of Jesse and Bruce. Our lean green Teletrac Navman machine looks sweet and I’m hoping for a good finish on Friday night.

Although Puckett is familiar with the characteristics of superspeedway racing, he’s hoping for the best and taking the positive approach to the Truck Series opener, the first race in a limited schedule for the DME team in 2020.

“I feel like we have a really good truck, it sure does look good with the Teletrac Navman colors too. Look, it’s Daytona. It can appear that you’re going to have an awesome night and then something completely out of your control happens and the night is over. We’re prepared for that.

“Our goal is to go to Daytona this weekend and make some noise. Get the truck into the show, draft to the front and try and stay there. If we can do that – it will give us some good momentum to take to our next race in March.”

Daytona is the first of at least a six-race deal with Teletrac Navman, a leader in fleet and management software.

“We are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Diversified Motorsport Enterprises and the No. 97 race team,” said Jens Meggers, president Teletrac Navman. “NASCAR is associated with brands that are influential in their space and we are honored to be among those brands during the 2020 season.

“Working together with Logan (Puckett) and the DME team will make for an exciting year in both of our first seasons. We are eager to take advantage of the exposure this partnership will surely bring.”

Driver Jesse Little, 22, will have a busy week at the “World Center of Racing.” In addition to the Truck Series, he’ll also be competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller.

“I’m super pumped to go to Daytona with JD and DME,” offered Little. “I’m proud to represent Teletrac Navman and be apart of Logan’s debut in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. Bruce and the rest of the DME guys have worked hard on the truck and I’m focused on winning!”

Despite 31 starts in the Truck Series, Friday night’s season-opener will be Little’s first race on a superspeedway.

Following Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, DME will return to NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series competition at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway in March 2020.

The NextEra Energy Resources 250 (100 laps | 250 miles) is the first of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs, Feb. 13 from 4:05 p.m. – 4:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 5:05 p.m. – 5:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., Feb. 14 beginning at 3:10 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Diversified Motorsports Enterprises completes purchase of JJL Motorsports

CHARLOTTE, N.C.: Officials from Diversified Motorsports Enterprises (DME) announced today that it has successfully completed the purchase of NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) team JJL Motorsports.

With the acquisition complete, Diversified Motorsports Enterprises hopes to compete in their inaugural NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race in the 2020 season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Fri., Feb. 14, 2020.

“This is a proud moment for Diversified Motorsports Enterprises,” said team principal Logan Puckett. “We appreciate Jason (Little) and everyone at JJL Motorsports for making the transition seamless and I’m excited about the outlook for our race team.”

The team will start 2020 in a new shop near Charlotte, N.C. and has plans to run a majority of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season with mainstay driver Jesse Little.

“We have big plans for the season but we’re going to be thoughtful and attentive to our approach with everything we do,” added Puckett. “Being a young owner in the Truck Series, I’m eager to be competitive out of the box while also being ambitious with our marketing with the intention to bring new business to business partners into NASCAR and build our team towards a full schedule in 2021 and beyond.”

Puckett also says the organization will make a series of announcements in January.

“Even with the Holidays quickly approaching, it’s a busy time for Diversified Motorsports Enterprises,” he added. “I’m thrilled about some of the personnel we’ve acquired and making the announcement of our marketing partner for our debut race.”

JJL Motorsports set for final Truck Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway

HOMESTEAD, Fla.: Set to embark on their final NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race under the JJL Motorsports banner, driver Jesse Little hopes to deliver a strong showing in Friday night’s season-finale Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway.

Little, the Sherrills Ford, N.C. native is poised to make his ninth Truck Series start of the season and fourth at Homestead’s South Florida 1.5-mile track.

For the NASCAR Next alumnus, he hopes to deliver and capitalize on another trip to Miami and build on the team’s ninth-place finish last November.

“I can’t believe Homestead is here,” said Little. “I am blessed to have another opportunity to compete in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series and the chance to drive this No. 97 Diversified Utility Group Ford F-150. Homestead can be a challenging track, especially as the track transitions throughout the day, but hopefully we can take our notebook and apply it this week and get a strong finish in JJL Motorsports’ last race.”

For the 23rd race of the season, Little will be supported by the Diversity Utility Group LLC.

Founded in July 2013, Diversity Utility Group is a turnkey general contractor specializing in fiber optic telecommunications construction consisting of new build, maintenance, cellular towers for wireless providers, residential and commercial applications and more.

“To have the Diversified Utility Group LLC as the partner for JJL Motorsports this weekend at Homestead means the world to me and that is probably understated,” said president Logan Puckett.

“It certainly is a reminder that hard work and dedication does pay off and anything is possible if you set your mind to it and It also serves as motivation to continue to keep pushing and keep working hard towards our future goals.

“Also, having been based in the Carolinas historically we are hoping this will bring some brand awareness to our company in Florida and the Southeast as a whole.”

For Puckett, his experience at Homestead though is just the beginning.

He has purchased the assets of JJL Motorsports and will debut the team in 2020 as Diversified Motorsports Enterprises.

The team plans to run a limited schedule next year starting with the season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February with Little as the team’s primary driver.

“I am really looking forward to taking over an outstanding program that JJL has put together as it provides a great foundation to build on and hopefully grow,” added Puckett. “I think the growth potential is what excites me the most.

“I am certainly looking forward to the challenge that this provides, and I hope that I can bring some value to the team and ultimately it would be awesome if I can bring value to the sport as a young owner with a fresh outlook.”

For Little, 22, who was announced last week as the new full-time driver for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in the NASCAR Xfinity Series is thrilled to see Puckett take the reins of the team.

“I’m honored to represent Diversified Utility Group this weekend at Homestead,” added Little. “Logan has been so excited about the opportunity to enter the Truck Series as an owner in 2020, but to have his company be a part of our last race under the JJL Motorsports banner as a sponsor is even more awesome.

“Hopefully we can have a good performance for him on Friday night before looking ahead to 2020.”

Additional, JJL Motorsports welcomes back associate partners Skuttle Tight, Grindstaff Rub, Visit Kingsport and Parker Fibernet for the final race of the season.

The Ford EcoBoost 200 (134 laps | 201 miles) is the 23rd of 23 races on the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Nov. 15 from 9:05 a.m. – 9:55 a.m. A final practice has been etched in from 10:35 a.m. – 11:25 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 4:35 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 8:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Refreshed JJL Motorsports, Jesse Little ready for ISM Raceway battle

AVONDALE, Ariz.: Set to return to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) scene for the first time since competing at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway in August, JJL Motorsports and driver Jesse Little are refreshed and confident heading into the penultimate race of the season at ISM (Ariz.) Raceway.

Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150 will be the organization’s ninth start of the season and Little’s second in the heart of the desert. In his previous start at ISM Raceway – Little qualified 24th and contended for a top-10 finish before being a victim in a late race accident that left him with an 18th place finish.

“To say that I’m excited to get to Phoenix would be an understatement,” said Little. “It has been a couple of months now since our last race and we couldn’t be more pumped up then to get going here soon.

“Phoenix has always treated me well going back to the K&N car and even my one start I made there in the truck. This JJL Motorsports Ford will hopefully have the speed we seek and help have a competitive top-10 night.”

Planning to compete at Phoenix on Friday night and next weekend’s season-finale at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) International Speedway, the Sherrills Ford, N.C.-native is confident his team can finish what they started two years ago in Avondale.

“The layout will be a little different since the last time I was there, but I still think that the track will drive pretty similar,” added Little.

“Since August, we’ve been working hard on our two trucks getting them ready for Phoenix and Homestead. I think our preparation will pay off in practice and qualifying and hopefully a strong finish can carry us to the last race of the season with a lot of momentum.”

While Little’s team led by veteran crew chief Bill Henderson has been diligently preparing for the final 350 miles of the season, and the recent announcement of the sale of JJL Motorsports at the end of the season is nearing completion.

The No. 97 team is expected to continue to operate in 2020 under the leadership of a new owner.

Further details of the team’s plans for next season will be announced next week leading into Homestead-Miami Speedway race weekend.

“I’m really happy that my NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series team will have a new owner in the garage next season,” said team principal Jason Little.

But before the keys are passed on to new ownership – Jesse Little is focused on making the final 284 laps of the season the best it can be.

Long-time JJL Motorsports partner Skuttle Tight, a Willmar, Minn.-based manufacturer that offers two insulted attic access systems that are easy to install joins the team for their 10th race of the season.

“We are excited to once again be partnering with JJL Motorsports and Jesse Little for this week’s Phoenix race,” offered Skuttle Tight president Chad Kompelien. “We find this marketing partnership as a great avenue to market our products to all of the fans of NASCAR.

“Jesse and the team do a great job for us and we are excited for this Friday night’s race in Arizona.”

Jesse Little added, “I can’t stress enough how thankful I am for all of our supporters and partners this year. I owe it to each and every one of them to finish the year on a high note and give it all we have.”

Little, the son of former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Chad Little will make his 31st career Gander Truck Series start on Nov. 8 and hopes to secure his eighth career top-10 finish.

Additionally, JJL Motorsports welcomes back associate partners Grindstaff Rub and Parker Fibernet for the next-to-last race of the season.

The Lucas Oil 150 (150 laps | 150 miles) is the 22nd of 23 races on the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Nov. 8 from 8:05 a.m. – 8:55 a.m. A final practice has been etched in from 9:35 a.m. – 10:25 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 3:05 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 6:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). All times are local (Mountain).

SHERRILLS FORD, N.C.: Officials from JJL Motorsports announced today that team owner Jason Little and driver Jesse Little will exit the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series under the JJL Motorsports banner following the season-finale at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway on Nov. 15, 2019.

Jason Little will depart the ownership role to facilitate a new position within the industry.

NASCAR Next alumnus Jesse Little is exploring opportunities in either the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) or Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) next season.

“I’ve really enjoyed the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series over the last five years and I’m very proud with what this family-owned team has been able to accomplish,” said Jason Little.

“Moving forward, both Jesse and I are looking for new ownership to take over the JJL Motorsports team intact and look forward to discussing with anyone interested in taking the reins and competing in the series during the 2020 season and beyond.”

Jason Little believes JJL Motorsports presents the foundation for a new owner(s) to enter the sport at an economical investment.

“We are actively searching for new ownership to purchase the team’s assets and resources as a turn-key Truck program heading into 2020,” Jason Little added. “We believe the team’s equipment, assets, current personnel and resources are a good opportunity for anyone looking to run in the series next year.

“I want to thank all our business and marketing partners for their continued support and really look forward to what the future holds. I plan to work closely with my nephew on business to business opportunities in Motorsports in the coming years.”

“I’m excited about finishing up the 2019 season with JJL Motorsports team and running Phoenix and Homestead at the end of the year,” said Jesse Little.

“I’m currently looking at options to advance my career into the Xfinity and Cup Series and really look forward to what the 2020 season has to offer. I can’t thank my uncle Jason (Little), all our marketing and business partners and my JJL Motorsports guys enough for all the support and we expect to finish the year with a couple of great runs.”

Interested parties are encouraged to contact the team directly at 704.502.1815 or jason@jjlracing.com.

JJL Motorsports, Jesse Little return to Gander Truck Series action at Bristol Motor Speedway

BRISTOL, Tenn.: Returning to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) scene for the first time since World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in June, JJL Motorsports and driver Jesse Little head to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway for Thursday night’s UNOH 200 eager for a top-10 finish.

The nearly eight-week break of Gander Truck Series competition has allowed the family-owned JJL Motorsports team to work to regroup and ramp up for not only Bristol, but a busy fall with their No. 97 Visit Kingsport and Skuttle Tight Ford F-150.

“I can’t wait to get back to Bristol,” said driver Jesse Little. “It’s such a cool race track and one of my favorites.  Super excited to have Visit Kingsport and Skuttle Tight on board our JJL Motorsports Ford F150.  I’ve always had a lot of speed at Bristol whether it’s been in K&N or Truck Series competition and I don’t expect anything less on Thursday.”

Being a one-day show puts the pressure on teams like JJL Motorsports and Little to preform, but as the Sherrills Ford, N.C. native notes, his team is ready to thrive under the pressure and deliver a strong finish.

“Bristol is one of those races that everyone keeps an eye on,” added Little. “There’s going to be stiff competition – but I’m confident we’ll have what it takes to be competitive and contend for a strong finish on Thursday night.”

The UNOH 200 also marks Little’s 30th career race in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series since 2015. The second-generation driver will seek his eighth-career top-10 finish.

Announced last week, JJL Motorsports welcomes back Visit Kingsport and Skuttle Tight who will serve as the co-primary marketing partnersfor the 17th race of the season.
