Erik Jones scores one for Xfinity regulars at Bristol
Erik Jones had a banner day at Bristol (Ten.) Motor Speedway on Saturday, not only taking the win in the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race, but also claiming the first of four Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonuses awarded by series sponsor, Xfinity. With the win, Jones became the first series regular to break into victory lane, seven races into the season.
“I never thought we’d get our first win here at Bristol this year,” Jones said. “Couldn’t be happier to get this GameStop Camry to victory lane and cool to do it with After Glow and everybody. Thank you to Chris Gabehart (crew chief) and this whole team; it’s a really young team, but we’re getting better every week, and it’s cool to see it pay off here in victory lane.”
