From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “After a win at Iowa Speedway in the ARCA Menards Series two weekends ago and an off weekend, we are rejuvenated and ready to take on Nashville Superspeedway. I am feeling quite confident and know the No. 19 Menards/Ortho GroundClear Toyota GR Supra will be bringing the speed. This will be my second time visiting the track, so I have notes to read through and look over from last year. Even though Nashville is a concrete 1.33-mile D-shaped oval, it has a lot of short track tendencies. There will be heavy breaking points and multiple competitive lines to run throughout the race. With it being the middle of the summer in Tennessee, I have spent weeks preparing and hydrating with predicted temperatures almost reaching 100 degrees. We plan to be there at the end and competing for the win in our Menards/Ortho GroundClear GR Supra.”
