Last September, in his first career start at the 1.5-mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Erik Jones drove the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) Toyota Tundra to victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.
After starting the race 13th, Jones methodically picked his way through the field, providing valuable feedback to his crew along the way that helped make his truck better throughout the 146-lap race. In the closing laps, Jones passed his then-KBM teammate Darrell Wallace Jr., to move into the lead for the final 14 circuits and take the checkered flag. It’s just one of four victories in 19 career starts for Jones, who is competing full-time in the Truck series this season for KBM. This weekend, Jones returns to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the Boyd Gaming 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race, during which he will pilot the No. 20 Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing.-True Speed Communication Mar 3 - 4:38 PM
