Brandon Jones was the highest-finishing Toyota driver in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday with a 16th-place result.
 
Jones was involved in a late-race incident but was able to recover and finish within the top-20 in the No. 19 Supra. 
 
His Joe Gibbs Racing teammates, Harrison Burton and Riley Herbst, were also involved in incidents that took their Supras out of the race early, finishing 32nd and 37th, respectively. It marks the first time this season Burton did not finish among the top-10 in an Xfinity Series race, ending his rookie record-breaking streak of 10 consecutive top-10 results this season. 
 
June 20, 2020, Harrison Burton (bottom) had his rookie record-breaking streak of consecutive top-10 results this season halted at 10 when he was involved in an incident during the Xfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday.

“It’s so hard to tell,” said Burton of what happened in the on-track incident. “There’s so much going on, even when you’re running single file. We had a fast race car and trying to make moves work on the bottom. Just kind of got shuffled to the back and from then on, that’s just kind of how it went down. Proud of our guys. We always have fast Supras and I have no doubt that next week won’t be any different and we’ll hopefully go out and get a win.”

The Xfinity Series returns to action next Sunday, June 28 at 12:30 p.m. ET at Pocono Raceway in a double-header day of racing with the NASCAR Cup Series.  

In ARCA Menards Series action on Saturday at Talladega, Camry driver Drew Dollar won his first career ARCA race. Dollar avoided a late-race accident to lead the final two laps and cross the finish line first ahead of Venturini Motorsports teammate Ryan Repko, who finished second.

The ARCA Menards Series will also travel to Pennsylvania and compete at Pocono Raceway on Friday, June 26 at 6:00 p.m. ET.
