He was a nine-time winner in the Xfinity Series and a seven-time winner in the NASCAR trucks.

“I am very much looking forward to returning to SpeedFest at Watermelon Capital Speedway, ”Jones remarked. “We had good runs there and I enjoy all the people down there a lot too. We only had a few races in this new super late model and are now just having a good run at the Derby, so I hope to go to SpeedFest and knock out our first win at the start of the season. There is always a wonderful group of riders there, so this is definitely another trophy I want! ”
