In morning practice it was reported on Fox Sports 1 that Erik Jones has been fitted for a seat in the No. 18 as a precautionary measure in case Kyle Busch fails to complete the distance for fatigue or pain.

It is unlikely Busch will get out of the car Sunday night, but the Coke 600 is the longest race on the schedule. Teams do not achieve elite status without accounting for all eventualities.

This weekend, Erik Jones is back in familiar territory competing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series 3M 250 at Iowa Speedway in Newton.

While Sunday’s race marks his first XFINITY start at the 7/8-mile tri-oval, he has never finished outside the top-10 in three Truck Series races, highlighted by a win last season and runner-up finish in 2013. During Jones’ last visit to Iowa Speedway, he piloted the No. 51 ToyotaCare Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), the team he’s competing full-time with in the Truck Series this season. Jones had the best truck for the majority of the race, but fellow competitor Ryan Blaney caught up with him near the end. The pair raced side by side throughout the last 16 laps until Jones edged Blaney to earn his second career Truck Series win.-True Speed Communication

Erik Jones was fast all afternoon in final practice. His top speed of 191.306 mph jumped to the top of the leaderboard in the closing minutes of practice.

Jones beat out Jeff Gordon and Joey Logano for the honor, which puts him in some rarified company. He needs to survive the knockout qualification session, but could be a dark horse to win the pole for the SpongeBob 400 at Kansas Speedway.

In a substitute role for Kyle Busch, Erik Jones logged the quickest 10-lap average in the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. His top speed of 185.065 mph was the best among 11 drivers who ran at least 10 consecutive laps.

Jones’ debut has been highly anticipated and at least in the opening session he is living up to the hype. Rookies are unpredictable, but so far he would seem to be worth the fantasy risk.

Camping World Truck Series regular Erik Jones led the only practice session for the XFINITY Series Winn Dixie 300 at Talladega Superspeedway.

When Denny Hamlin had a muscle spasm in his neck during the opening laps of the Food City 500, it set into motion a scenario that put Erik Jones in the seat of the No. 11. Jones was not credited with the finish, but he ran most of the race and scored a 26th in his Cup debut.

Jones lost six laps in total during the event, but even so he had a remarkable run for a driver with absolutely no practice in a Cup car. Joe Gibbs Racing’s willingness to put him behind the wheel also indicates that Jones is going to get some significant seat time in the No. 18 before Kyle Busch returns—and that could make him fantasy relevant.
