Josh Berry has been around for a while.

While in the midst of just his first full-time season at the NASCAR national series level, the No. 8 JR Motorsports driver — one of the few full-timers at the Xfinity Series level over the age of 30 — has a longer page on Racing Reference than most of his peers. No, really, go look for yourself and get ready to scroll.

The row at the top, however — his Cup Series stats — is one of the shortest ones. He’s determined to change that.

“I think if I’ve come this far, I think that there’s no reason why I wouldn’t have a set goal of racing in a Cup car one day,” Berry said. “Who knows if that day will come?”

JRM entering the Cup Series is a long-rumored move, but one with little front-facing traction and often downplayed by the organization’s famous co-owners. Still, Berry has a tremendous shot at further impressing his boss, Dale Earnhardt Jr., who will be on site for NBC Sports’ inaugural coverage weekend of 2022.
