Brandon Jones and the No. 33 Turtle Wax/Menards Chevrolet Camaro at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Coming off a solid top-15 finish in Atlanta, Jones and his No. 33 Turtle Wax/Menards Chevrolet Camaro head west to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend. Jones has one previous XFINITY Series start at the 1.5-mile track, in which he started fifth and finished sixth. The 20-year-old driver also has one Camping World Truck Series start from 2015, which resulted in a top-five finish.
Jones leaves his home track of Atlanta Motor Speedway with his first top-15 finish of the season. It was an up-and-down weekend for the Georgia native, as he was forced to a back-up car during the second practice of the weekend when a tire went down and pushed Jones into the wall. However, he and his No. 33 team worked hard on dialing in the back-up car’s handling and were able to come together to earn a respectable 14th-place finish on Saturday.

You’ve had a great showing the two times you’ve raced at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in NASCAR, starting and finishing in the top-10 both times. What about the track do you think suits your racing style?
“Las Vegas is a fun track for me, and I’ve had some good success there in the past. The pavement is relatively newer than some of the other tracks we visit, and there is low banking around the corners, so with the heat out there the track is slippery and fun to race on. You can carry a lot of speed around there, even in the corners. We almost had a top-five finish in the XFINITY Series but had to go into fuel conservation mode during the closing laps last year, so I’m ready to get back there and grab the finish we deserved.”
