Brandon Jones Leads Team Toyota at Road America
Brandon Jones led the way for Team Toyota in an eventful NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America. In a race that saw lightning, rain, rain tires and hard racing, it was the Joe Gibbs Racing driver who earned a 14th-place finish at the Wisconsin based track.
“At the start of the race, I had a lot of confidence coming into it. For about three weeks, I would say or so, we ran laps on the simulator at TRD and that was really the best I’ve felt coming into the weekend,” Jones said. “I still learned a bunch in the first half of the race as well. We’ll see. We’ve got some more crazy road courses coming up so maybe this is a little bit of a momentum booster going into those.”Brandon Jones
