In honor of Jesse Love joining Richard Childress Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series stable, winning 10 ARCA races, and clinching the 2023 ARCA Menards Series Championship, it’s time to get to know and love Jesse Love. The 2024 season marks many firsts for Love, including his first time driving in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Here’s a few favorite things of Love’s:

• Love’s nickname is “The Hammer.”

• Favorite type of music is rock and favorite band is 38 Special.

• Favorite television show is Bones.

• Favorite food is anything Love’s mother makes.

• Love grew up in California and was an avid surfer.

• If Love wasn’t racing, he would aim to be on the PGA Tour.

While Carolina and California are states apart, there’s one aspect to Jesse Love’s new day job that makes the Tarheel State feel just like home, and that’s Richard Childress Racing. The family-oriented organization that is RCR drew Love in when he decided to take his career to the next level. Love is also very faith-driven and enjoys the outdoors in his free time, all of which are important to RCR.
