Erik Jones wins at Bristol, wins Dash4Cash and locks into the Chase

CgL_u7ZUUAAfPRrErik Jones emerged from a restart with three laps remaining to surge to victory Saturday in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Bristol Motor Speedway, pocketing a $100,000 bonus as part of the series’ Dash 4 Cash promotion. 

Jones wheeled his Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota past Kyle Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet in the 198th of 200 laps, then held off a charging Kyle Busch by .419 seconds at the checkered flag. His win in the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 was his first XFINITY triumph of the season, his first Bristol win in the series, and the third of his XFINITY career. 

The victory also qualified Jones — who led three times for 62 laps — for the NASCAR XFINITY Series’ Chase playoffs.

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.”
