Similar to the Xfinity Series, Jones dominated the 2015 Truck Series race leading 151 of 167 laps before finishing 11th. Kansas marks the place of Jones first-career Cup Series start from when he filled in for the injured Kyle Busch in 2015. During his Series debut, Jones started the race from the 12th position, led one lap and was poised for a strong finish before a late-race incident ended his day in the No. 18 Camry with a 40th-place finish.

From the Driver’s Seat:

Erik Jones: “I like Kansas a lot and with the momentum from the last few weeks on our side, I think we can go there this weekend and contend for the win. We’ve come close to winning in the past at Kansas and it’s a place I’ve always run well at over the years in Cup, Xfinity and Truck. We’ve got Reser’s on the car this weekend for their last primary race and it would be cool to get them a win. Kansas has always been a big track for them with their plants nearby. Reser’s has been a big part of my career at JGR and we’ve been able to celebrate with a few wins over the years. We’ve got a good starting spot for Sunday and hopefully we can run up front and contend for the win and get our first win of the season this weekend at Kansas with Reser’s.”
