Mooresville, North Carolina – Team Little Racing and Larry McReynolds Racing announced today a technical alliance for driver Jesse Little, the 2013 NKNPS Rookie of the Year and member of the NASCAR Next program. The technical alliance, which coincides with Team Little’s transition to manufacturer Toyota, will provide Team Little with LMR shop personnel, as well as engineering and technical support for Little’s NKNPS team in 2015.
“From the very beginning we have been clear that our mission at LMR is to identify and attract the best young drivers in NASCAR and then surround them with the sponsors, people and technical support that they need to succeed,” said LMR team owner and FOX analyst Larry McReynolds, “not only do we believe that Jesse is one of the top young talents in our sport, but I have no doubt that this partnership will give Jesse the opportunity to show NASCAR and its millions of fans worldwide just how good this young man is.”
Little, who captured his first career victory on the NKNPS last July at New Hampshire Motor Speedway after starting on the outside pole, continues his partnership with the NASCAR Technical Institute onboard the #97 Toyota as a sponsor for the upcoming season as well as engine supplier for both LMR and Team Little.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for me and everyone involved in our program,” Little said. “To have someone the caliber of Larry McReynolds and his team approach us to join their efforts for 2015 is something we’re very excited about and I am looking forward to working with such a talented group.”
The partnership represents just one in a number of moves made by LMR since the conclusion of the 2014 season to begin to solidify its position as one of the top emerging teams and development companies in NASCAR. In addition to the Little Partnership, LMR will provide shop space, LMR shop personnel, as well as engineering and technical support for BMR East driver Nick Drake in the #15 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota.
Matt Goslant, generally regarded as one of the most promising young minds in the sport, has joined the team as its general manager and competition director, where he will be responsible for all on and off track activities of LMR.
“Since arriving at LMR I knew that Jesse was one of the top young drivers that I wanted to work during the offseason to bring over here,” said Goslant, “and now that that the partnership has been realized we are excited about the future successes that it will generate for both Jesse and our growing team.”
Established in 2014, Larry McReynolds Racing provides the technical and engineering support, marketing opportunities and additional assets necessary to successfully compete at the highest level of NASCAR for its expanding list of clients and sponsors. Under the guidance of former Crew Chief and Fox Analyst Larry McReynolds and Championship winning crew chief Matt Goslant, LMR seeks to continue its growth as an emerging fixture in the NASCAR K&N series and beyond.
