Previous Race Recap...The last time Jones was behind the wheel of the No. 33 Exide Chevrolet was in March at Martinsville Speedway. Jones put together a solid race in the rain-delayed Kroger 250, making his way up into the top 10 during different portions of the event. Jones was unable to stay inside the top 10 in the closing laps due to some late-race restarts. The 17-year-old finished the race in the 15th position, bringing home a career-best finish in the NCWTS.

Brandon Jones on Dover International Speedway:
"I'm really excited about our opportunity this weekend at Dover. I've been looking forward to getting back into the trucks since our run at Martinsville, and I think our team can build on a good run last time out. I've only raced at Dover once and it was a blast; we were able to put together a solid run in the K&N car and bring home a top-10 finish. Hopefully we can put together a similar run this time in the Trucks, and bring home another good finish."
