This Week’s Chevy Truck Month Camaro at Phoenix Raceway
Heading into the second leg of the ‘NASCAR Goes West’ tour after recording a top-15 finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Brandon Jones is eager to compete at Phoenix Raceway, a track he’s visited five times in his racing career. In two NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the 1-mile track, the 20-year-old driver has one top-15 finish (11th) from March 2016. Jones also has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts and one NASCAR K&N Pro Series West start at the track.
Meet Brandon Jones
Jones will be available to answer fan questions and sign autographs while he visits the Team Chevy stage at 9 AM on Saturday, March 18, located in the Fan Midway.
Jones will be participating in the first NASCAR XFINITY Series autograph session of the season on Friday, March 17. Fans can get his autograph, along with fellow RCR teammates Daniel Hemric and Brendan Gaughan, starting at 11:30 a.m. local time in the Fan Midway.
This weekend Jones will have new colors on his No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro. The white, gold and gray paint scheme celebrates Chevy Truck Month, which is going on throughout the entire month of March. Fans are encouraged to get to their local Chevy dealer and choose the Silverado that’s right for them.

You have a lot of experience racing at Phoenix. What are some of the keys to success at the track?
“In order to run well at Phoenix, you need your car to turn really well in both corners of the track, which is tricky since they are both very different. Turns 1 and 2 are extremely tight and have more of a banking, where Turns 3 and 4 are wide like at New Hampshire. Normally, a car will handle well in one corner but not the other, so if we can figure out how to balance both corners we’ll have a great day on the track and a shot at the win. With all the support Chevrolet has provided me throughout my career, it would be awesome to give them their first XFINITY win of the season while they’re on the car!”
