NASCAR rookie Erik Jones admitted Friday that he is uncertain if he will race in the Sprint Cup series beyond next week’s race at Kansas. Thursday, Joe Gibbs Racing confirmed Jones will take over the team’s No. 18 Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series starting at the race in Kansas on May 10. Jones will take over the No 18 until Kyle Busch fully recovers from injuries he received in a crash during the season opening Xfinity series race at Daytona International Speedway in February.
Friday at Talladega Superspeedway, Jones said that as far as he knows the deal is for him to compete in the Kansas race. Jones is as Talladega to compete in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity race.
“For right now, Kansas is the only race I’ve got in the 18 so beyond that I honestly don’t know,” Jones said. MORE>>>
