Jones Seeks Unbridled Success at Kentucky


A Different Kind of Horsepower The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) returns to the track for the ninth race of the 2015 season Thursday night when the home state of the Kentucky Derby hosts the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway. Brandon Jones, driver of the No. 33 MasterForce Chevrolet for GMS Racing, will make his debut at the Bluegrass States 1.5-mile track, focused on continuing his successful season.


Looking Ahead Two weeks ago at Iowa Speedway, Jones captured a career-best second-place finish after running in the top five for most of the race and battling points leader Erik Jones for the lead in the closing laps. After seven of 17 scheduled starts in 2015, Jones has picked up one top-five result and two top-ten finishes. Jones is currently tied for seventh in Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings, while the No. 33 truck is tied for ninth in NCWTS Owner Standings.


Kentucky Chassis Choice Crew chief Shane Huffman has selected chassis No. 020 for the 150-lap event. Kentucky marks the fourth time this Chevrolet will be utilized this season, with previous results including Ty Dillons second-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Jones 13th-place finish at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

On what to expect in his first start at Kentucky Speedway:

Its been different running these mile-and-a-half tracks this year, but Ive found my rhythm and have a good idea of how to approach the larger tracks. The biggest thing Ive heard about Kentucky is that its bumpy, and weve raced on some other tracks that are the same, so I think well be able to adapt. It will be a little different to deal with the bumps on a larger track, but I dont think its anything our MasterForce team cant hande.


On GMS Racings recent success:

We just have to try to keep the momentum up. A good goal for us is top-ten finishes and top-five finishes on really good days. Every time we unload, our Chevrolets have a lot of speed and good balance. Were able to gain even more during practice, which only improves our ability to run well during each race. I think weve proven to ourselves that we can show up and compete for wins. It definitely helps our confidence as a group.
