From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “Heading to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend for the Xfinity Series regular season wrap up, we are locked in, but are taking nothing for granted. We are pulling out all the stops, notes, and TRD sim time to make sure we are prepared. This trip needs to be solid and everyone needs to be on the same page. Bristol is one of my favorite tracks and I have had some real strong runs there, led a lot of laps, but now it is time to put it all together. Bristol is the perfect track for us and I always have it circled on my calendar. We’ve been so close to winning there multiple times, so it’s time to take this one. This team is working extremely hard and we are bringing fast Supras each week and focused on putting our Menards/Jeld-Wen Supra in victory lane.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
