After starting seventh, Jones wasted no time jumping into the top five early and he held a top-10 position throughout the 250-mile race. The result was Jones’ second consecutive top-five at the two-mile oval in Brooklyn, Michigan. 
  • ARCA MENARDS SERIES: Jones will also race in the AMS Watkins Glen 100 on Friday night in the No. 81 Menards/Amerilux Toyota Camry.

From the Cockpit: 

Brandon Jones: “Watkins Glen is probably the fastest road course we go to. There’s a lot of right-handers there so that will be something that we need to keep in mind setup-wise. We had a pretty good finish there last year and the gains that we made in the off-season with our No. 19 Menards/MagickWoods GR Supra will be important so I don’t see why we won’t show up and have a top-five finish this weekend.”
