Erik Jones, Austin Dillon earn top spots for Xfinity heat races

UntitledErik Jones earned the pole for the first of two Xfinity Series heat races Saturday morning at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Jones topped the field with a speed of 125.914 mph.

“Starting up front is big any time at Bristol, whether it’s a heat race or main,” Jones said on Fox Sports 1. “It’s just nice to start up front. Hopefully, we can stay there.

Austin Dillon“Pretty cool to get the pole here. It’s been a couple weeks where we have been second, so it’s nice to finally get that pole and give us some momentum for the race today.

Austin Dillon was second fastest. He’ll start from the pole for the second heat race. His speed was 125.543 mph.

“It’s probably one of the best Xfinity cars we’ve had all year long,” Dillon said. “We’re going to do our best to stay up front and win one of these heat races and have fun from there on out.”
