Jones was out there on the track by himself when he spread the ashes. He’ll compete on the track on Tuesday just hours after spreading his father’s ashes.

The action is expected to begin at 2 pm EST.

The Council Bluffs, Iowa native will get you emotional when you watch this video. His father will look over his son now as he takes part in the dirt racing action.

The Bristol Dirt Nationals is currently featuring multiple short track races that feature more than 1,000 teams competing in events from March 13th through March 20th. On Saturday, it will conclude with a $50,000 dirt late model feature.
