Jordan Anderson Scores Career-Best Second Place Finish in Season Opener at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.  – Jordan Anderson used a combination of driving experience and timely strategy to come home as the runner-up in an incredibly exciting photo finish during the season-opening event for the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series at the unpredictable Daytona International Speedway. The side by side finish between eventual race winner Grant Enfinger was the closest ever recorded finish at Daytona in Truck series history with a margin of victory of only .010 seconds.

Anderson and his Wally Rogers led team qualified 23rd at the 2.5-mile World Center of Racing and laid low throughout much of the evenings action. The goal was to maintain position in the trailing group of drafting partners throughout the race, looking to avoid the inevitable carnage in the lead pack as the laps wound down.

Near the 35-to-go mark Anderson first cracked the top 10 but decided to drop back as trucks began to dice it up on the track. Later on as the NextEra Energy 250 went into overtime after a late-race caution, Anderson would restart in the sixth position in his No. 3 K-Seal/Bommarito.com Chevrolet Silverado after a mistake-free race.

In the ensuing Green-White-Checker restart, Anderson maneuvered to the bottom line as the action began to unfold. On the final lap as the field powered through Turns 3 and 4 coming to the checkered flag, the popular owner-driver from Forest Acres, South Carolina, would catch a strong enough draft to get to the rear bumper of Enfingers’ machine and slingshot to his outside. Anderson looked to the outside and briefly pulled ahead as the two banged doors in the tri-oval, with Enfinger barely reaching the start-finish line first.

For Anderson, the finish was a testament to the hard work of his team, all the people responsible for getting them to the track, and a focus on his faith.

“God is good. You look at our race team and the opportunities that we’ve had, and it’s just because people have come in and believed in what we’re doing and what we’re trying to do and God’s put the right people in our path. Forever thankful to John Bommarito and everyone at the Bommarito Automotive Group, our new sponsor K-Seal, Capital City Towing, Sefton Steel, Lucas Oil, FVP, Randy Knighton and Bobby Reuse, and so many other people that have believed in us, and made this whole dream into a reality.” said Anderson.

“To try to put into words what this means to our team, I had to move some money around this winter just to get through to buy this truck. We knew that we needed to bring the best truck we could. This sport isn’t easy, but I love NASCAR and I love this sport. This is what NASCAR is about. To do this for every single one of my guys. Everybody that’s supported us, from the biggest sponsor to the smallest sponsor.  The journey isn’t easy but it’s worth it. Life is all about embracing the journey. We’re at Daytona, we almost won!”

JORDAN ANDERSON RACING AND AM RACING SET TO WORK TOGETHER IN 2020

STATESVILLE, N.C – With every new season, comes fresh opportunities. As the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series begins its 2020 schedule next Friday night at the Daytona International Speedway in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 – Jordan Anderson Racing and the #3 team will be looking to build off the momentum created in the off-season thanks in part to moving shops, and the sharing of resources with another race team.

Yesterday in Statesville, AM Racing and its driver of the #22 Austin Wayne Self, and Jordan Anderson Racing and its driver Jordan Anderson of the #3, jointly hosted fans and media at their new shop location that each organization will operate out of moving forward alongside Win-Tron Racing. Dayne Pierantoni from Chevrolet was in attendance as well and discussed how the new opportunity would help bolster on track performance among the two teams. The 30,000 sqft facility previously occupied by Front Row Motorsports, boasts a well laid out main shop floor filled with Chevrolet Silverado race trucks, separate fab shop, paint booth, chassis dyno, and offices for engineers and crew chiefs.

Along with the shop announcement, both teams discussed their intentions to compete again full time in the Truck Series, and discussed each others goals and expectations for the upcoming season. The 2020 season will be Anderson’s sixth year to compete full time as a driver and will be the third year of operation for his team after its launch in 2018. The team also welcomed back primary partners Bommarito Automotive Group, Lucas Oil, and Capital City Towing.

The synergy between both teams carries into a relationship off the track as well as Jordan Anderson’s sister, Jennifer Anderson, and Austin Wayne Self recently announced their engagement in December.

“This move is such a big step forward in so many ways” said Jordan Anderson. “To be aligned with a team that operates the way that AM Racing does and to work closer with Austin this year is a great move forward for us. Wally Rogers will be back as crew chief with us this year and it’s exciting to be able to provide him with more resources as we strive to keep making this team more competitive each and every week. We’ve been extremely blessed with some amazing people like John Bommarito and his organization that stand behind us and support us. To be able to make this move is another perfect example of that.”

Anderson set for 100th Career Nascar Truck Start with New Partner

Returning to the same track that he made his debut at back in 2014, Jordan Anderson is set to embark on his 100th career NASCAR Gander Truck Series start this weekend at the ISM Raceway in Phoenix, AZ. To make the Friday night race that much more special, Anderson and the team will be sporting new colors and a partner on his #3 Chevrolet Silverado.

Goettl Air Conditioning, celebrating their 80th year in business, will adorn the truck with a special primary paint scheme featuring their blue, white, and gray colors just as the 504 Goettl service trucks that are driving throughout the Southwest USA do. The Goettl name has been recognized for serving the southwest with excellence in heating and air conditioning installation and service for over eight decades.  Goettl CEO Ken Goodrich was excited about the partnership and stated that “The hard working perfectionists at Goettl Air Conditioning are proud to partner with Jordan Anderson because, like Team Goettl, Jordan does things the right way, not the easy way.”

The driver of the 3 was just as upbeat about the new partnership. “I’m forever grateful for the journey that we’ve been on ever since hitting the track for the first time back in 2014” said Anderson. “There have been so many incredible people that made this dream even remotely possible, and it’s humbling to think about all the stories, memories, and friendships made along the way. Lots of amazing blessings to look back on and answered prayers. Never giving up, and embracing the journey are two phrases that we coined early on – and we continue to live them out each and every day in the pursuit of continuing to build this race team and competing to achieve what we once thought was impossible. To have Goettl join us for this milestone weekend is exciting, and the start of something that I hope will spark a growing and lasting relationship between the two of us moving forward.”

The entrepreneurial spirited driver started his own team before the start of the 2018 season, and has continued to make the Truck series home as they look towards 2020 and continuing their growth upward after the addition of veteran crew chief Wally Rogers earlier this summer.

Joining Anderson on the truck for his 100th start will also be longtime partners Bommarito Automotive Group, Lucas Oil, Knight Fire, FVP, Sefton Steel, Capital City Towing, WCI Parts, Rustys Off Road, and LTi Printing. Another new partner to the team will be riding along with Anderson as well with Pour Fragrance Co. making their debut as a sponsor in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series.

Tune in on FS1 at 8:30 EST or 6:30 local time to catch all the action in the Lucas Oil 150 as Anderson and his #3 team try to keep the momentum rolling as they look to finish the season out strong.

ANDERSON BUILDS SUMMER MOMENTUM WITH 3RD STRAIGHT TOP 15

In a sport as tumultuous as NASCAR, positive momentum can play a big role in a small team. For Jordan Anderson and his #3 organization, they’ve been able to ride the results of three straight Top 15 finishes in their last 3 races at Kansas, Charlotte, and Texas respectively as they look to continue building the second-year team moving into the summer months of 2019 with a focus on performance and consistency. The race results have not only been a boost of confidence for the crew, but they have allowed the team to climb into the 13th spot in the series’ championship points standings.

In between races at Charlotte and Texas, Jordan also made an excursion to the Alaskan frontier and competed for the first time in the state driving the #89 Pro Late Model for Bobby and Roger Reuse. The trip proved to be a worthwhile and exciting one, as Anderson captured both the pole and race win – along with meeting and making new fans at the beautiful track located at the base of snow covered mountaintops in Anchorage, AK.

With races at the Iowa Speedway, and at the newly renamed World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in Anderson’s adopted hometown of St. Louis coming up, there will be plenty of action served in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series this month. The two events will be part of the Triple Truck Challenge where drivers are competing for a $50,000 bonus for each race win.

In Jordan Anderson’s most recent race in the #3 Bommarito.com Chevrolet Silverado this past weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth, the organization put together one of their best performances to date using fan favorite chassis 007. After posting the 6th fastest time in 1st practice, the team and driver worked on setup changes all weekend, using the extended practice time available as a test sessions of sorts to build their intermediate track notebook.

After overcoming issues during qualifying, Anderson and team began their march forward during the race. With the setting Texas sun and cooling track temperatures, the asphalt began to gain grip that favored the #3. At the end of the 1st stage, Anderson had climbed up to 9th and earned 2 stage points for the effort. After a bold pit strategy to stay out and not pit for the start of the 2nd stage, Anderson would restart 2nd on the field. Upon the drop of the green flag, he would make a move on Todd Gilliland for the lead, and eventually settle in to 3rd place for the majority of the stage bringing the entire team and sponsors sitting on pit road to their feet.

At the drop of the checkered flag at the end of the race, Anderson had brought home another solid Top 15 finish for the team after overcoming a late race spin while fighting for position that took place in the slippery turns 1 and 2 that fought the drivers all night.

“An absolutely amazing weekend for us overall to see the potential that lies ahead.” said Anderson after the race. “Although the finish doesn’t show how well we ran tonight, this is a huge boost of confidence for each of the guys on our team that works their hearts out, and each and every one of our partners that have supported and believed in this team from Day 1. The journey has been filled with more blessings than I can count, and to be able to run towards the front with the resources that we have, has me more motivated than ever to keep moving this organization forward and press on towards what’s ahead. I’ll forever be grateful to everyone that’s supported us, and helps make this dream possible every week. I can’t wait to race at Iowa and Gateway these next two weeks and put a show on for all the amazing fans that our sport has in the midwest.”
