After over 100 starts, Brandon Jones drove his Toyota Supra to his first Xfinity Series win at Kansas Speedway on Saturday afternoon.
It was a strong weekend for Jones as he set on the outside pole for his best start of the season and ran in the top-10 for most of the day. After a pit road penalty, Jones drove from the back and continued to get stronger. He lined up third on the next-to-last restart and drove by both Cole Custer and Tyler Reddick to the lead. Another quick caution occurred but Jones was ready on the restart – driving away from the field and scoring his first career Xfinity Series win.
“This is incredible. I knew this was going to happen – that we were going to come here and have an amazing run like we did today,” said Jones. “It’s only because of those guys here. They have fought with me for a long time, and this feels way better because it has been tough to get to this point. Everyone that has been a part of my career to this point – Flow was on today, a new sponsor with us, we have had Menards in the past, iK9, Toyota, for all they do. I don’t think I could have done this without the manufacturer. I wish my parents were here. They have been through a bunch of wins with me. All-in-all, I cannot wait to celebrate with these guys.”Brandon Jones
“It was a lot of fun out there. Me, 00 (Cole Custer) , the 2 (Tyler Reddick), the 98 (Chase Briscoe) were all racing really hard and for Brandon (Jones) to get a win is very cool. It’s great for Joe Gibbs Racing, and great for Brandon too. He has deserved that one. We were close, and ultimately it was a lot of fun racing.”Christopher Bell
