Brandon Jones: “This year is off to a great start. There’s only been a few teams that have been able to consistently run inside the top-five both during the stages at the end of the race, and fortunately our No. 19 Menards / Jeld-Wen team has been one of them. We felt like Atlanta could be a challenge for us with it being what I consider to be one of the most difficult tracks, so to come out of there with a fourth-place finish really boosts my confidence about what our team could possibly accomplish this year. Las Vegas Motor Speedway has a lot of similar driving characteristics as Atlanta, but it’s a newer track surface so the tire fall off isn’t as drastic. I’ve had some strong runs there in the past in both the Gander Outdoor Truck Series and the Xfinity Series, so we’re really excited about our chances this weekend. There will definitely be some tough competition with some of the Cup drivers in the field this week. However, the No. 19 team is really excited to have both Menards and Jeld-Wen back on our Toyota Supra this week and we think we’ll have what it takes to be in the mix at the end of the race.”
