“Yeah, it’s been a busy week,” Jones said. “I didn’t get home ‘til Tuesday night, drove back up here and went over and tested a late model on Wednesday over in Grand Rapids, Michigan and then yesterday kind of got to take the day off, visit a little friends and family and then back it again today, so just nice to come home.”
“Nice to sleep in the house that I grew up in and stay there – it’s only about an hour away from here – and roll into the race track in the morning. It’s just cool to be here and on Sunday get all the family and friends out. I’ve burned through every possible hot pass I can get, so just nice to have everybody here and be close to home.”
Jones starts 14th this Sunday and comes home to Michigan after his best Cup performance last week where he finished 3rd at Pocono.
“It’d be really cool,” Jones said. “I told somebody, that I was jealous last year watching Kyle Larson get his first win here because I was saying, ‘Man, that sure would be pretty storybook if I could do something like that.’ I’d love to get my first win here. We have a lot of momentum right now and I think we brought a good car again this weekend, so it would mean a lot to me. It definitely would be cool with as many people that would be here watching and would get to enjoy it all with me in victory lane and then head right over and do another ace on Monday, so it’d be pretty special.”
