MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Brandon Jones will return to JR Motorsports’ No. 9 team next year in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
The 26-year-old Georgia native will continue his multi-year relationship with Menards, which began in 2015.
The partnership between Menards and JR Motorsports dates back to 2004, when team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. raced co-branded Menards Chevrolets for Chance 2 Motorsports to three Xfinity Series victories over two seasons.
Menards has been a fixture in NASCAR since 2003, and is active in all three of NASCAR’s national series.
“Competing for race wins and series championships alongside John Menard and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a driver’s dream come true, especially since both have worked together with great success before,” said five-time Xfinity Series winner Jones. “The partnership between the two organizations is top-notch and I am excited for the opportunity to continue that success.”
Despite missing the playoffs, Jones and the No. 9 Menards team are riding high off a runner-up finish last weekend at Kansas Speedway, where he has won twice in Xfinity Series competition.
On Friday night, Jones and team have their sights on a potential victory in the 300-lap event under the lights at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
