Race Notes:

  • Erik Jones started the race from the 22nd position and was involved in an early accident resulting in the use of the one reset designated by iRacing to repair the No. 20 CRAFTSMAN Toyota Camry.
  • Making his way back to the lead lap, Jones was able to work his way towards the fop 10 before a late race accident relegated Jones to a 21st place-finish with his mangled CRAFTSMAN Camry as the last car on the lead lap.

Finishing Position: 21st

“Race number two in the books here at Texas. Definitely a lot different than Homestead, we kind of struggled all day. We weren’t very fast and got in a lot of wrecks. Had a shot to probably run towards the top five there at the end, but got caught up with a few other guys. Just tough. Texas was hard to pass, and kind of reminded me of real life at Texas, but next week going to Bristol should be pretty interesting. Definitely going to be chaotic and a lot of, probably wrecking going on, but should put on a good show. Excited and it should be a fun one.”

 

Additional Notes:

  • This was Jones second race in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series, adding to his 10th-place finish from round one at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
  • With the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series following the original 2020 NASCAR Cup Series schedule, teams will now head to Bristol Motor Speedway for round three.
