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.
