Returning the #0 Chevrolet Camaro in 2017 will be Peachtree City Georgia native Garrett Smithley. Despite missing the season opening race at Daytona in 2016, Smithley was still able to finish 18th in NASCAR Xfinity Series points. Smithley gained his best career finish at Talladega in May where he finished 12th. Smithley returns to the program for the second straight season. #NuthinNation will run wild in 2017 as Garrett will seek to have a successful season behind the #0.

Returning in 2017 to the #4 Chevrolet Camaro will be Ross Chastain. Chastain was in the discussion much of 2016 of being one of the drivers to make the inaugural Chase but he failed to make it by just a few spots. It will be Chastain's third straight season with JD Motorsports behind the wheel of the #4 Chevrolet Camaro. Chastain finished 16th in NASCAR Xfinity Series points in 2016, gaining a best finish of 11th at Daytona in July. Chastain will be the veteran at JD Motorsports competing in 73 career races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Rejoining the organization in 2017 will be Harrison Rhodes. Rhodes made 28 starts for JD Motorsports in 2015 gaining his first Top-10 in the July race at Daytona. Harrison has 53 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with that Top-10 being his best career finish. Rhodes has a best points finish of 24th the last season he raced for JD Motorsports.
JD Motorsports stout lineup just adds to the excitement of the 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series Season that contains many stout drivers including William Byron, Michael Annett, Cole Custer, along with the three from JD Motorsports and many other great drivers in competitive rides.
