From the Driver’s Seat: 

Erik Jones: “Las Vegas has been a decent track for us I’d say. This race last year we were actually really strong and had a really quick Camry, just had a mechanical problem towards the middle of the race and didn’t get to see how it was going to play out for us. I’m excited to get back there. Bristol was a really good race for us finishing third and being in contention at the end. Hopefully we can keep that momentum going and have another strong run at Vegas and keep contending and being up front. As long as you’re running up front in the top three, you’ve got a shot at the win depending on how it’s going to work out. Hopefully we’re in position and I think Vegas is a good chance for us to win the first one of the season.”
