Harrison Burton claimed his 13th top-five finish of the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season in Friday evening’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Burton led his Joe Gibbs Racing teammates with his second consecutive fourth-place finish, while Brandon Jones finished in eighth and Riley Herbst was scored in 10th.

The 2020 Xfinity Series Playoff grid is set with the young Team Toyota trio ready to vie for the series title; a season that will culminate at Phoenix Raceway in November. 

Burton sits seventh in the Playoff standings. “I’m excited. I think we’re going to have a really good Toyota Supra in the Playoffs. I know my guys are putting in extra hours and I’m putting in extra hours and I’m just so excited to go to work and have a chance to run for a championship. It’s really going to be fun and I’m excited.”

Jones comes into The Playoffs on the heels of three wins in the regular season and fifth in the standings. “I think Vegas is the one we need to go out and just wear them out. That could be the one you just go and win and if we do that and lock ourselves into the next one then Talladega and the ROVAL, those two, you go out and be aggressive and try to get as much as you can. If it doesn’t work out, you don’t have to worry about it too much. That we will our plan going into Vegas, but not putting ourselves in position either to where it’s going to mess us up at the end of the day and make to where we have to be good at those other two tracks.”

Herbst rolls into the Xfinity postseason as the 11th seed.  “(We) Just couldn’t get the handle on our Monster Energy Supra tonight. I need to be better. We need to be better on pit road and me behind the wheel. It was a good wake-up call as we head to the Playoffs here. Going home so maybe we can get some home luck next week and cash in, get a win and advance and spoil some people’s Playoff bubbles.”

The NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs kick off next Saturday evening at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and can be heard on PRN Radio as well as Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
