NASCAR XFINITY Series – Food City 300
August 18, 2017 – Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
No. 33 Ohio Logistics Chevrolet Camaro
Brandon Jones and the No. 33 Ohio Logistics Chevrolet team finished 20th at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday night. After starting the race from the ninth position, Jones fought an ill-handling car throughout the early portions of the race. Getting loose and spinning during the race’s second stage, Jones sustained front-end damage and lost valuable track time while making repairs. No longer on the lead lap, Jones’ was unable to regain his lost track position throughout the closing laps of the race to result in a 20th-place finish.
“We had a really strong qualifying effort for the No. 33 Ohio Logistics Chevrolet but started the race with no grip in the center. Once Stage Two started, I got loose and lost it off of Turn 4 and we got some front-end damage. We fought from there to get back on the lead lap. We were hoping for cautions to fall in our favor to make a few handling adjustments. Unfortunately, one little screw up cost us a good day.”
Jones currently sits 16th in NASCAR XFINITY Series driver point standings. Next, the series will travel to Road America on Sunday, August 27 for the Johnsonville 180. NBC will carry a live broadcast of the event beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET, while radio coverage will be provided by MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
