Josh Berry to Pilot JRM’s No. 88 Speedco Chevrolet in NXS race at Richmond

MOORESVILLE, N.C. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Sept. 1, 2015) –
 
 Josh Berry, a two-time late model champion for JR Motorsports (JRM), has been selected to drive the No. 88 Speedco Chevrolet Camaro in the upcoming NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) race at Richmond International Raceway on Sept. 11, general manager Kelley Earnhardt Miller announced today. 
 
A 24-year-old native of Hendersonville, Tenn., Berry will make his first NXS start since running two races for JRM in 2014 (Homestead-Miami Speedway and Iowa Speedway).  The event also marks Speedco’s second primary sponsorship in NXS competition.  Speedco is the only national network to specialize in quick lubes and tire services for the trucking industry, and has been a JRM partner since 2012.
 
“We’re happy to be able to put Josh in our XFINITY car again at a track he has some laps on to allow him to show what he can do,” said JRM co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. “I felt like he performed well last year in the two races he was able to run. He’s really elevated himself as a driver this year, winning at multiple tracks in the late model to earn this opportunity and I expect him to make the most of it.”  
 
Berry has racked up nine wins in JRM’s No. 88 Speedco late model this season and stands as JRM’s only multi-time champion, notching two NASCAR Whelen All-America Series track championships (Motor Mile Speedway in 2012 and Hickory Motor Speedway in 2014).  All totaled, he owns 24 victories for JRM during his late model career.
 
“I’m just really excited to have another opportunity to move up,” said Berry, who has a NASCAR K&N Pro Series East start at Richmond.  “We’ve had a really good season so far in the late model car, and I’m really excited to get to do another XFINITY race, especially at a race track I’ve been to before. I ran in the XFINITY Series twice last year and wasn’t sure I would have the opportunity to do it again, but luckily Speedco came on board for this race. I’m really thankful for their support and for the opportunity Dale, Kelley, L.W. (Miller) and everyone at JRM are giving me.”
 
Berry will be the fifth driver to wheel the No. 88 JRM “All-Star” car this season, joining NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regulars Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne, and 18-year-old NXS rookie Ben Rhodes.  Harvick has driven the No. 88 to a pair of victories (Atlanta Motor Speedway and Auto Club Speedway) in 2015.
