  • LAS VEGAS RECAP: With rain washing out qualifying at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the field for Sunday’s race was set by the 2019 point standings placing Jones and the No. 20 Toyota Camry team 16th on the starting grid. From the start of the race, Jones and the team struggled with the handling of their Camry, running most of the race outside the top 20. Making significant changes throughout the race, Jones looked to be on his way to a top 15 finish when contact on the last restart resulted in a cut tire and dropped the No. 20 team to a 23rd-place finish.
  • RACE INFO: The Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway is scheduled for Sunday, March 1, 2020. Coverage will begin at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX, Sirius XM Channel 90 and MRN Radio.

From the Driver’s Seat:

Erik Jones: What are your thoughts heading to Fontana this week?

“I think it’s going to be different. Going into Fontana last year, no one really knew what we needed car-wise, balance-wise and this year we have a whole notebook to look back on to try to get better. I think it’s going to be a different race than last year. I think there will be a lot more lifting, the cars will be faster. Everybody has just gotten their cars better and more efficient and faster on the straightaways and that makes for more lifting in the corners. It will probably be a little different race, but Fontana is always a good show. I really like going there. It’s cool you can pretty much run anywhere on the track. It will be exciting, but a little bit different from what we had.”
