Brandon Jones: “Coming out of Daytona with a top five and a career-best finish for me has me really excited for the 2019 season with our No. 19 Menards / Jeld-Wen team. I’m looking forward to getting to my home track in Atlanta this weekend. While that track has not always been my strongest, I do enjoy the challenge that the track brings like saving tires. Our No. 19 team spent a lot of time over the off-season preparing for Atlanta; we probably put in 200 laps around the track using Toyota’s simulator. My Joe Gibbs Racing teammates have had a lot of success there the last few years, so I’ll definitely lean on them this weekend, too. I think whichever team gets their car dialed in the best to run the bottom will be the team we see in victory lane.”
