Erik Jones and the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing team remain determined to race strong through the end of the 2019 schedule. They approached Kansas Speedway with good intentions to be competitive with the Reser’s Fine Foods Toyota Camry. Following Friday practice, Jones qualified the Reser’s Camry Saturday afternoon in the 20th starting position.
When asked about his qualifying lap, Jones commented “It was alright. It was kind of where we expected. Not a whole lot you can do here, but I feel like the Reser’s Camry is pretty good in race trim. We focused a lot on that yesterday. I feel like we have it pretty good, pretty close, pretty good in traffic.”
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event will wave the green flag on Sunday, October 20th and will be broadcast on the NBC channel at 2:00pm ET.
