After two practice sessions spent gaining familiarity with the famed 0.533-mile oval, Jones made his first qualifying attempt in the NCWTS and earned the 26th-starting spot in his No. 33 Katy Springs Silverado for the UNOH 200. After 200 laps, Jones was able to gain valuable experience and brought his Katy Springs Silverado home with a 27th-place finish.

Brandon Jones on racing a Truck at Iowa Speedway
"I'm really looking forward to getting back in the truck. I think I was able to learn a lot at Bristol, and I think it will be good for myself and my Turner Scott Motorsports team that I am making my second series start at a track where I have a lot of seat time. I think if we go out and stay out of trouble, run the full race and bring home a clean truck, that will be a good run for the Wolfpack Energy Services team."
