FROM THE COCKPIT: “We’re coming off an amazing run at Talladega with a career-best finish of second, so the team and I have a lot of confidence that we can be in contention to run well at Dover this weekend. I also qualified for the Dash 4 Cash for the first time in my career, which gives us 100,000 more reasons to want to win this weekend. [laughs] Dover is a track that I have been fast at in the past and where I’ve run with multiple series. I always compare it to a roller coaster ride—there aren’t many moments where you can settle down and just ride. Instead, it’s like running a qualifying lap every lap. I know my JGR team has always been competitive at Dover in the past, too. With all the momentum we’ve gained over the last few weeks, I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do in the No. 19 XYO Network Toyota Camry this weekend.” – Brandon Jones

FROM THE PITBOX: “After coming off of our best finish of the season and Brandon’s best career finish everyone is really excited to get to Dover to continue our momentum and race in the Xfinity Dash 4 Cash. We are all really proud to introduce XYO Network into our sport with such a strong run at Talladega and feel confident we can go to Dover and give them something to cheer about again!” – Chris Gabehart
