Jerry Robertson (born January 2, 1962) is an American professional stock car racing driver.

Racing career[edit]

He began his racing career as a high school senior at Colorado National Speedway and won eight races, garnering the Rookie of the Year title. Over the next 12 years, he was a fixture on the national dirt-track racing scene, winning 126 times. In 1994, he switched to paved racing, and was named Rookie of the Year and champion in the NASCAR Grand American Modified Division. After being named "Oval Track Driver of the Year", he ran in the NASCAR Northwest Regional Championship series, winning titles in 2003 and 2004. In 2005, he signed up with the fledging Furniture Row Racing, and ran ten races. He also made his Nextel Cup debut at Phoenix International Raceway, finishing 41st after suffering engine failure.

Robertson was expected to run for Furniture Row in the Nextel Cup Series for the majority of 2006. However, without a guarantee of making the show, Robertson has been scaled back to the Busch Series while Kenny Wallace runs the Cup effort Robertson has a best finish of 22nd in the 2005 Ameriquest 300 and in 2006 did not have the results that they were looking for. Also, Robertson has raced eight times in the Craftsman Truck Series.

Robertson has not found a ride for the 2007 and 2008 seasons and continues to race locally. His racing career future is uncertain.
