From the Cockpit:

Brandon Jones: “After a solid run last week at Dover, we are stoked to head to one of my newly favorited tracks, Darlington Raceway. We have seen great success in our Joe Gibbs GR Supra from years prior including a win and multiple top-five finishes. In honor of throwback weekend, we have the privilege to run Paul Menards 2011 Brickyard 400 scheme. The No. 19 teams’ confidence level has been building with the triumph we have endured over the past few weeks, and we intend to keep it going. I know we have all been putting in the work; to see the accomplishments have been quite rewarding and special so far this year. With the specific characteristics Darlington brings I believe a lot of what I have been learning at the dirt track will come into play. Hoping the recently added dirt races, sim time and past notes bring greater success this weekend. We hope to put the Menards/Turtle Wax GR Supra in victory lane for the second time this year.”
