Erik Jones had the 16th-fastest speed in the first practice session of Daytona 500 prelims and was fourth best in the third-practice, but he finished 18th in his Duel and lines up 34th.
Those three factors combine for an average of 18.0, which puts him firmly in the middle of this chart. Great things are expected of Jones, but he should be saved for the upcoming unrestricted, intermediate speedway races. Feb 25 - 6:26 PM

As if the anticipation of his inaugural Daytona 500 wasn’t enough for Erik Jones, the driver of Furniture Row Racing’s No. 77 5-hour ENERGY Toyota Camry prepared for the 59th running of the Great American Race by experiencing a completely unique sensation of speed, horsepower, g-forces, and patriotism: a flight with the United States Air Force Thunderbirds.

Jones and fellow NASCAR Cup Series competitor Ryan Blaney took one-hour flights Tuesday in F-16 Flying Falcons from Yelvington Jet Aviation at Daytona Beach International Airport. He flew on Thunderbird No. 8 piloted by Captain Erik Gonsalves, who has logged more than 1,600 flight hours, including more than 500 hours of combat experience. The flight pulled as many as 9.3 g’s during the flight.-Furniture Row Racing

Erik Jones has finished in the top 10 twice in the Xfinity series at Daytona International Speedway after qualifying in the top 10 in four previous attempts.

One would prefer a more dominant record in the developmental series before risking an allocation on this Young Gun on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway. Jones and Daniel Suarez will be the principle contenders for 2017 Rookie of the Year and there will be plenty of opportunities to start them on more predictable tracks.

Kyle Busch and Erik Jones are two of the entrants who will run this year’s Winter Showdown at Kern County Raceway Park Saturday, February 11.

Busch regularly runs late model events and his drive to win is part of what makes him such a great value in Fantasy NASCAR. He will also get a chance to evaluate his corporate teammate Jones. Busch told Speed51.com, "One of the things that is going to be really cool is that this will be the first time that Erik Jones and I get to race against each other in the supers since he beat me in the Snowball Derby back in 2013."
