From the Cockpit: 

Brandon Jones: “It’s kind of surprising how much running ARCA for a few races this season has helped me in the Xfinity car. It gives me a big advantage to get on track before getting in the Xfinity car. Bristol has changed a lot from the first time I ran there to now and I love night racing so I’m excited for the race on Friday. The guys have been working hard in the shop on both the ARCA and Xfinity cars so hopefully we can get to Victory Lane in the No. 81 Menards/Homewerks Toyota Camry on Thursday night and again on Friday in the No. 19 Menards/Jeld-Wen Toyota GR Supra.”
