Unaware that Jamie McMurray was pitting on lap 27 of the Alabama 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Erik Jones ran into the back of Jamie McMurray and sustained heavy crash damage.

Jones will finish 36th. He was considered one of our favorite dark horses entering the race, but will end up losing considerable points for fantasy players.

Erik Jones did not clear technical inspection in time to make a lap during the first round of qualification and will start the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway 38th as a result.

The good news is that Jones is going to earn a ton of place differential points and this poor starting spot will not keep him from challenging for a top-10 finish. His value to fantasy players has increased.

Erik Jones was this highest finishing rookie of the ISM Connect 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway with a sixth-place finish.

Jones was one of the top picks this week for Daily Fantasy despite his struggles in the summer. He qualified well earlier in the year, but he ran into trouble early. This year, he avoided a mid-race accident and that put him in a position to capitalize at the end of the race.

Erik Jones is the only driver in the top 12 in qualification for the ISM Connect 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway who is not in playoff contention. His lap of 133.971 was good enough for eighth on the grid.

Jones qualified sixth this summer for the Overton's 301, but he ran into trouble and finished 39th. If he stays out of trouble this week, he should easily score a top-10.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Erik Jones, driving the No. 20 NBA 2K18/GameStop Toyota, won the Coors Light Pole Award for the TheHouse.com 300 with a lap of 177.229 mph.

This is his 13th pole in 72 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races. It is his first pole and 10th top-10 start in 2017 and his first pole in four races at Chicagoland Speedway. Cup driver, Daniel Suarez (second), posted his eighth top-10 NXS start of 2017 and his fourth in five NXS races at Chicagoland. Kyle Larson (third), another Cup driver, posted his fourth top-10 NXS start at Chicagoland and his 10th in ten NXS races this season. Cole Custer (fifth) was the fastest qualifying Rookie of the Year contender.

Erik Jones qualified 24th for the Chicagoland Speedway race and will have to pass more than half the field to get to the front.

It is possible that this is a case of letdown emotions after failing to make the playoffs. He should be watched closely, but the odds are good that he will be able to continue this top-10 streak.

He ran a fast lap of 173.310 mph. No. 23 Spencer Gallagher, No. 18 Daniel Suarez, No. 00 Cole Custer and No. 22 Ryan Blaney round out the top-five of the 39 cars out on the track. The No. 74 Dodge, driven by Mike Harmon, was the slowest in the final practice session. Jones also led the first practice session earlier this afternoon. He also had a 10-lap average speed of 170.681 mph. This was the best of the 19 cars running at least 10 consecutive laps in this session.

Erik Jones narrowly missed earning his fourth consecutive top-five at Richmond International Raceway when he finished sixth in the Federated Auto Parts 400.

This was Jones’ sixth consecutive top-10, however; and he is fulfilling the promise that he showed at the start of the year. Jones is likely to continue to improve during the playoffs now that the pressure is off his shoulders.
Sep 10 - 2:01 AM

Erik Jones posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session among Rookie of the Year contenders. His top speed was 119.936 mph.

That put him eighth on the speed chart—and that is the good news. The bad news is that NASCAR will enforce a penalty of 60 minutes from this afternoon’s 90-minute Happy Hour session and that could derail his effort.
Sep 8 - 11:26 AM

Erik Jones scored a top-five finish in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, which is his third consecutive top-five in the past three races.

Jones finished third at Michigan International Speedway and was second last week at Bristol Motor Speedway; in fact, he had a car capable of winning the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. Jones also finished in the top 10 at Pocono Raceway and Watkins Glen International, giving him a four-race streak of top-10s.
Sep 3 - 10:48 PM

Erik Jones finished second in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol after leading the field to green from his first pole.

Jones had the best car for periods of the race, leading 260 of the 500 laps. He got caught in traffic and lost spots to the eventual winner Kyle Busch and the driver he will replace at Joe Gibbs Racing next year, Matt Kenseth. Jones chased Busch down and closed to within about a half with a handful of laps remaining. Jones failed to win, but he was the top values in most fantasy games.
Aug 19 - 10:44 PM

Erik Jones earned his first career pole at Bristol Motor Speedway for Saturday night’s race and will lead the field to green in his 27th attempt.

Jones has 11 top-10 starts in 26 previous races. His best previous start was a fifth at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coke 600 and he earned one of eight top-10s with a seventh.
Aug 18 - 6:42 PM

Erik Jones matched his career-best finish at Michigan International Speedway in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway when he crossed under the checker third.

Jones had an opportunity to win and he was equal to his teammate Martin Truex Jr. in the closing laps. While he didn’t get the win, he was one of the best values at his salary cap level—as we predicted in this week’s Weekend Update.
