BRANDON JONES QUOTES: qualifying.
We have another short track this weekend with Dover International Speedway. Does Dover feel similar to Bristol Motor Speedway, or do the two just look alike and that’s it?
“Dover really only looks like Bristol. It’s is definitely a roller-coaster ride. You go into Turn 1 and it sinks down so much when you get in the corner, and then it sort of pops back up on the straightaways. It’s very unique and has the biggest elevation changes we feel on an oval track. There’s really nothing like it on the circuit. There’s nothing like Bristol either, so those two tracks are two completely different animals compared to anywhere else we visit.”
AAA is back on the car for the first time this year. How does it feel to have them returning as a sponsor for you this season?
“I’m honored AAA has returned this season to our No. 33 team after the great run we had with them at Kentucky Speedway last year. I’ve worked with AAA a couple of times now across the NASCAR XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series, and they’re a great partner to have. I’m looking forward to representing such an established brand and hope we can have more successful races together this season.”
