Erik Jones, No. 20 Craftsman Toyota (Started 8th, Finished 11th, Running 400 of 400 laps)

Erik Jones qualified the No. 20 Craftsman Toyota in the eighth position and finished stage one in seventh. A pit road penalty for removing equipment from the pit stall during the stage break cost the 20 team track position dropping him back outside the top 20. Jones battled back to finish stage two in 16th.  He lined up 16th to restart the final stage and barely missed out on a top ten finish taking the checkered flag in 11th.

Next Up: The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series moves to Charlotte Motor Speedway next Sunday for the debut of the oval as the final race in the opening three-race playoff segment.  Live coverage of the race will start on Sunday, September 30 at 2 PM on NBC.  Reser’s Fine Foods is the primary sponsor for the #20 Toyota Camry this week in Charlotte.
