Finished 20th On A Rainy Afternoon In Bristol

NASCAR XFINITY Series – Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300
April 22, 2017 – Bristol Motor Speedway
No. 33 M-D Building Products/Menards Chevrolet Camaro

Brandon Jones and the No. 33 M-D Building Products / Menards Chevrolet team finished 20th at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon. In an action-packed race, complete with an extended red flag for rain, Jones found himself near the front of the field throughout much of the afternoon and vied for a position in the Dash For Cash race during the race’s second stage. However, contact on a late-race restart left Jones’ pinned against the wall and out of contention for a top-five finish.

“We just can’t seem to catch any luck this season. My team worked so hard to get the No. 33 M-D Building Products / Menards Chevrolet Camaro handling to where I needed it, and we had it dialed in there toward the middle of the race. I was able to run up front and contend for the lead for a lot of the race. It’s unfortunate that after waiting out that rain delay our shot at a top-10 was taken away after receiving contact and being pinned against the wall on a restart. We had a really strong race again but just couldn’t get the finish.”

Jones currently sits 13th in NASCAR XFINITY Series driver point standings. Next, the series will travel to Richmond International Raceway on Saturday, April 29. FS1 will carry a live broadcast of the event beginning at 1 p.m. ET, while radio coverage will be provided by MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
