Stage 1 Recap (Laps 1-25)
Brandon Jones and the No. 19 Juniper Networks team qualified strong with a seventh place position at Pocono Raceway.
Jones had a great start moving from seventh to fourth on lap one, but got loose snapping the rear of his Supra around on lap 6, spinning and backing into the outside wall in turn 1 ending the 19 team’s day early.
He finished 38th.
What happened out there?
“I’m more frustrated for the guys than myself. I never run great here, so to be running fourth the way we were, to have a really good Supra actually qualify way better than I thought we were going to as well – too good to be true I guess. I don’t know. We’ve just got to keep going. We’ve got really good cars. These guys are working really good in the shop. We’ve just got to keep staying up there.”
Next Up: Next week the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, June 8, 2019. Jones will be back in the No. 19 1st Foundation Toyota Supra. The race starts at 1:30 p.m. EST with live coverage provided by MRN and FS1.
