Jones lands first Xfinity win at Texas

Takes Checkered from Pole

It was just his ninth outing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series; however newcomer  Erik Jones earned his first trip to victory line in the series.  Jones also became the second-youngest series winner ever at Texas Motor Speedway at the age of 18 years, 10 months and 11 days.

Jones lands first Xfinity win at Texas

"This is surreal," said Jones, who has already been making waves in the last year as a breakthrough talent in the Camping World Truck Series driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports. "This is just amazing. We beat Cup guys tonight! Just a really cool day and something I'm really proud of not only for myself but everybody at Joe Gibbs Racing.  "It's a great feeling knowing you had to work for it, that it was not just handed to you," he added. "That confidence is something I never doubted in myself."
