Jesse Little will move up to the Xfinity Series in 2020 and drive full-time for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller, the team announced.

The 22-year-old Little, son of former Cup driver Chad Little, has been competing in a part-time effort in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series the past five seasons. His team, JJL Motorsports, announced in September it will close at the end of this season.

Little has made 30 Truck starts and two Cup starts. He has not run in the Xfinity Series.

“I am beyond excited to have the privilege to race full-time in 2020 for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” Little said in a statement from the team. “It’s something I have honestly dreamed about since I can remember. They are a successful, established team that I can’t wait to begin working with. I hope to represent Johnny, the JDM brand, and especially all their partners to the highest satisfaction.”
