In those two Xfinity starts, Little started a track-best 19th (October 2020) and finished a track best 22nd in the same race. He has completed 494 of 500 laps in Xfinity competition at the legendary Virginia short track.


Jesse Little Truck Series Short Track Stats: At NASCAR Camping World Truck Series tracks classified as a short track, Little has made seven starts throughout his career with two top-10 finishes, while carrying an average finishing position of 17.9.

Circuit of the Americas | XPEL 225 Race Recap: Little’s teammate Kaz Grala piloted the No. 02 Young’s Building Systems | Randco. Chevrolet RST in the Truck Series most recent race at Circuit of the Americas on March 26th.


After qualifying mid-pack, Grala contended for a top-10 finish but was spun into the gravel on a late-race restart which thwarted the team’s chances for back-to-back top-10 finishes on the 20-turn road course.


Grala recovered with the few laps remaining to finish 14th.


In his most recent with Young’s Motorsports at Atlanta, Little earned a very respectable 15th place finish after starting deep in the field at the newly repaved 1.5-mile speedway that raced like a mini-Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway or Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.
