Jones will return to the site of one of his most successful tracks this weekend as the NASCAR XFINITY Series visits Iowa Speedway for the second time this season.

In addition to the win, Jones secured two top-five and three top-10 finishes in the K&N East division. The 20-year-old driver also has one ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start and three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the track, which resulted in one top-five finish.

We return to Iowa Speedway this weekend. With it being a stand-alone race, do you feel like it’s a good opportunity for you to make some headway into making the playoffs?
“Iowa Speedway is definitely a place where I feel like we have a chance to shine in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. With those races being stand-alone ones, the pressure and expectation to win is a little higher than normal. We want to walk out of those places with solid finishes and know we got every position we could out on the track. A couple of years ago, I was really good at Iowa and seemed to have that place pretty figured out. Recently, they’ve had a couple of rough winters and hot summers, which has affected the track and broken it up a little. You can’t run it like it used to be run now. The track has changed, so each time we go back I take a little bit of time for myself to figure out what adjustments I need to make to best get around there.”
