ERIK JONES, No. 20 Sport Clips Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing

Finishing Position: 7th

“A good top 10 run. Thanks Sport Clips for coming on this week and running with us at Richmond for the iRace. We made a pit call there to stay out on tires and got towards the front. We ran second for a while, but lost a little track position there at the end. Good run for us and I’m happy we could get up front and contend for a little bit. Continuing to try to work on it and get close to the front and hopefully in the next couple of weeks we’ll have a shot to win one of these races.”
