From the Cockpit:

Brandon Jones: “Our No. 19 team got bit once again by bad luck after having such a strong car in Iowa last weekend. On a positive note, we were very competitive all weekend long and hopefully that will give us some momentum to carry into next weekend. I always like that Watkins Glen is the road course we visit to kick off this next stretch in our schedule. It’s by far the fastest and most aggressive road course that we go to. I’ll be racing in the K&N Pro Series East race on Friday to help prepare and get acclimated to the track before our Xfinity Series race on Saturday. I feel a bit more confident every year on these road courses, which also helps us get a little faster every year. I’m looking forward to turning left and right this weekend in our No. 19 1st Foundation Supra.”
