ERIK JONES, No. 20 DEWALT Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 6th
Solid run, got shuffled back and came back up to sixth.
“It was clean; it was good. Nothing big happened, which is always good for this race. It was tough. Kyle (Busch) was the really the only one that we had on our side. Not a lot we could do there. We got shuffled back, and came back to a decent finish. The DEWALT Camry drove okay. We learned some good stuff, and made some good changes. I think we will be okay on Sunday to go after it.”
