“It’s always nice when family and friends can get to the track and be part of the day,” said Earnhardt. “We’ve had to choose which races to run this season so I could preserve my rookie status for 2013, and we’re glad that our sponsor Uponor chose Charlotte.”

Uponor is a leading manufacturer and supplier of plumbing, fire sprinkler and radiant heating and cooling systems for commercial and residential building markets across North America and Europe. Uponor’s Director of Brand Management Ingrid Mattsson commented, “The Uponor team is thrilled to bring Earnhardt racing to our contractors and partners and looks forward to cheering on Jeffrey in the Uponor Ford Mustang.”

Earnhardt’s been maintaining his focus through intense MMA (mixed martial arts) training while working on sponsorship plans for 2013. He won an MMA contest earlier this year with a unanimous decision.

“Our JEI group has been working hard to make sure we run a full season in 2013, and I’ve been front and center with sponsors so they get to know me and the value of working together,” he says. “Uponor is a world-class company and it’s pretty special having the opportunity to be part of their team. We’re going to give 110% to make sure their customers enjoy the experience.”

The race will be televised Oct. 12, 2012, on ESPN at 7 p.m. EDT. Jeffrey can be heard weekly at 9 p.m. on SiriusXM NASCAR radio with Claire B. Lang.
