Since being let go by TMG Motorsports Jeffrey Earnhardt has been waiting to hear some good news about the upcoming 2018 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series season.
Earnhardt recently took to Twitter to share a fortune he received from a fortune cookie. And if it’s any indication of what’s to come, he very well could be behind the wheel in NASCAR sometime this season.
The cookie said “within this year,” so there’s no timetable as to when it may happen, if it does at all. And while it’s only a fortune from a silly cookie, NASCAR would be foolish not to find a way for Earnhardt to get on the track for 2018.
For the first time since 1974 the sport is looking at a season without an Earnhardt driving in the Cup Series. Between his grandfather Dale Earnhardt Sr. and his uncle Dale Earnhardt Jr. one of the two had been involved in the Cup Series each year from 1975-2017 (Earnhardt Sr. 1975-2001 and Earnhardt Jr. 1999-2017).
Rumors have circulated as of late that something might be in the works for Jeffrey for 2018, but nothing has been confirmed.
