Meet Brandon Jones
Brandon Jones will be appearing alongside his RCR teammates, Brendan Gaughan and Daniel Hemric, at the Team Chevy display for a Q&A session beginning at 11 a.m. local time in the Darlington Raceway Fan Zone on Saturday, September 2. Fans can also catch the three drivers at the XFINITY Zone starting at 11:15 a.m. local time on Saturday in the track Fan Zone for a pre-qualifying chat.
Darlington Raceway, “The Lady In Black,” can be awfully tough, jumping out and biting cars when drivers least expect it. What do you think about the racing we have there?
“Darlington Raceway is one tough track. Last year was my first time racing there, even seeing the track in person, so it was a challenge. We ended up running well and finished ninth. It was a track that I thought we’d be decent at, but I just didn’t know what to exactly expect. Coming into this weekend, I feel like I know where we need to be to hopefully better our finishing position. I know where my marks are and where other people may be running. The 21 team tested there earlier this year, so we do have some notes from that to use for setups. We’re definitely going into the weekend as prepared as we possibly can be.”
