Going over the wall for success

Tags: | |

A little late on this one, but as an East Carolina alum it's nice to see former ECU linebacker Jeff Kerr is doing well in NASCAR

He is jackman for Martin Truex's Nextel Cup team. At the pit crew competition in Charlotte in mid-May, he won the jackman competition and the team was the surprise winner of the competition

Kerr pocketed $10,000 in the individual competition and the team took $70,000 for first place.

"I'm sitting on cloud nine,"

-- Jeff Kerr

Bonesville's Bethany Bradsher has a good piece here on where Kerr is now and his journey from an intense and three-time all-conference college football linebacker to the pits.
