Brandon Jones:  “After the start that we’ve had to our season and leading 19 laps in Bristol, I am confident that our No. 19 team is capable of competing for wins and top-fives. Richmond is a tough track and last year I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but our team had a lot of speed and in my opinion we overcame a big obstacle that weekend. I always turn to my Joe Gibbs Racing teammates when we race at Richmond; I look to them for advice on how to run the track and get any tips that they’re willing to share. One of the keys to success at Richmond is tire management and making sure you don’t abuse your tires, which honestly is pretty difficult since we typically have long green flag runs there. I’m excited to have Juniper Networks back on our car this weekend and I’m looking forward to our team getting another strong finish for them.”
