From the Driver’s Seat:

Erik Jones: “Texas has been a really good track for us. I’m excited to get back there again and have Sport Clips on the car with us this weekend. Sport Clips has been a huge part of my career at JGR from Xfinity to Cup and we’ve had some really cool wins together. With only a few races left this season, I really want to get a win for not only the guys on this 20 team who have been with me, but all the partners who have been with me over the years at JGR. We’re in Sport Clips back yard this weekend, so it would be pretty cool to get them a win. Texas has been a great track for me over the years and we’ve been close to a lot of wins in the Cup Series, and won a few races there in Xfinity and trucks. Hopefully we can unload Sunday with a fast Camry and finally get a Cup win at Texas.”
