From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “Coming into the Dover double header weekend with an extra boost of confidence after a second place finish on the Daytona Road Course with our Menards team. At the Monster Mile I have attained some good runs and a pole. Our JGR Supras have been very strong this year and with all the preparation we have put into the concrete oval, I don’t expect this weekend to be any different. Personally, I have always loved coming to Dover and the intense racing the track brings for the fans and drivers. It’s very fast and provides the biggest sensation of speed of any track that we go to. It’s just a fun place. We’ve got Menards and Pelonis back on board for the double header and I am ready to put another Supra back in victory lane for the third time this season!”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
