Jones Looking To Capture A Top-Five Finish at Virginia International
August 12, 2014 – The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) heads to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) for the 14th race of the 2014 season, the Biscuitville 125. This marks the second annual event at the Virginia circuit for the NKNPSE, as Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) returns to defend Dylan Kwasniewski’s 2013 victory. Scott Heckert, who was victorious for TSM at Watkins Glen one week ago, looks to continue that success while making his second-career start at VIR. Meanwhile, Kaz Grala, Brandon Jones, Ben Rhodes and Cameron Hayley will all make their first-career starts at VIR this weekend. All five TSM teams tested at VIR a few weeks ago in preparation for this weekend’s race.
Jones is coming off a solid-run of his own, as the 17-year-old put together a masterful run, overcoming some mid-race adversity to bring home a sixth-place finish at Watkins Glen. The young gun looks for more of the same this weekend at VIR, which marks the second-career NKNPSE road course start for Jones in the No. 33 Wolfpack Energy Services Chevrolet. Jones sits third in the NKNPSE Driver Point Standings, just seven points out of second position.
We had a great run for the No. 33 Wolfpack Energy Services team last weekend at Watkins Glen, and hopefully we can continue upon that this weekend at VIR. We’ve obviously got a road course car with quite a bit of speed behind it and, following last week’s race, I think we should be able to run up towards the front all weekend long. – Brandon Jones
