From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “Our No. 19 team is anxious to head back to Daytona for the Speedway race under the lights on Friday. The night race is always exciting for the fans, but the key is to stay out of the “big one”. Overall, we had a very strong Supra at Dover. We were able to overcome some ups and downs and have a solid fourth place finish in the final race of the doubleheader. Our Menards team will carry that into Daytona as we can definitely see the results from all our hard work. I have had some good runs at the Speedway and am still looking for a win at a plate race. Jeff Meendering and I have been looking closely at previous notes and tapes to help with some drafting techniques. We will have Menards and Pelonis back on our Toyota Supra and our team will be focused on finishing strong at Daytona and coming home with a win.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
