Toyota Trio Top 10 in Miami
Team Toyota Trio Finishes Top-10 in Miami
For the first time in 36 years, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race twice in a single weekend! Team Toyota’s trio of NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers brought home top-10 finishes led by Brandon Jones.
The No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing driver narrowly finished in the runner up spot, while Harrison Burton continued his top-10 streak with an eighth-place finish and Riley Herbst earned finished ninth.
“I think it was great that we were able to run back-to-back races. It was great that we were able to take the same exact car to the second race as well. That really helps us with our notes to adjust on the car for today,” Jones said. “This was kind of redemption for us really. I know yesterday we were in the same exact spot and had a chance to win it today,” he continued.Brandon Jones
Burton continued his impressive top-10 finishing streak in Homestead, FL with eyes on the rest of the season. He has finished the first 10 races in his rookie campaign inside the top 10.
“We want to win more stages, things like that. I still haven’t won a stage – won two races but haven’t won a stage,” Burton said. “(We’ve) Got to find a way to get those Playoff points, they are really important come later in the year. We saw last year with (Tyler) Reddick, (Cole) Custer and (Christopher) Bell, all of those guys were pretty much locked in though the first round of the Playoffs, and that’s because they the stage points and the points from winning.”Harrison Burton
Brandon Jones qualified himself for the Xfinity Dash 4 Cash in next weekend’s race at Talladega Superspeedway and will race for an extra $100,000 bonus.
