Brandon Jones wins first Truck Series race at Pocono

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Kyle Busch Motorsports drover Brandon Jones won his first NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoor Truck Series race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday. This race was part of the first-ever triple header with three races in one day. 

Due to weather, the Truck Series race was moved to Sunday. Besides Jones winning his first Truck Series race, his entire crew that he was working with also won their first Truck Series race in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.

This was Jones’ 46th career Truck Series race. The Atlanta, Georgia native has raced sparingly in the series except for 2015 when he raced in 17 out of 23 races. 

However, the 23-year-old has made just 21 appearances over the last five seasons.

Jones outlasted Austin Hill and Sheldon Creed in the final laps. He defeated Hill by 0.864 seconds. 

“That was a heck of a battle,” said Jones, a full-time NASCAR Xfinity Series competitor who has won twice at Pocono. “I know it was fun to watch on TV — it was really fun for me there.”

Kyle Busch Motorsports has been one of the best Truck Series organizations in recent years. The Cup Series star gives his drivers the best equipment possible, as well.

“It’s not really that much pressure, honestly,” Jones said. “There’s so much they provide for us. We were all on a call with him (owner Kyle Busch) last night after the Cup race. He gave us so much information that led to this win today.”

Creed led a race-high 31 laps, while Jones led 11 laps and Christian Eckes led 10 laps. 

Zane Smith led seven laps and Ross Chastain led one lap.

Several drivers were not able to finish the race. This list included Eckes, Tate Fogleman, Ty Majeski, Raphaël Lessard, Austin Wayne Self, Codie Rohrbaugh, Matt Crafton, and Brennan Poole.
