Erik Jones and No. 43 Petty’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Garage team finished 29th in the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, located in Kansas City on Sunday, October 24.
The line-up for the 267-lap event was determined using the NASCAR competition-based formula, which takes into account the final positions of the previous race (weighted 25% owner and 25% driver, 12th place, Texas), ranking in owner of the team points (35%, 24th place) and the fastest lap of the previous race (15%, lap 17). Jones started at Kansas Speedway from 17th place in row 9.
At the end of the first stage on lap 80, Jones was scored in 18th place. By the end of the second stage on lap 160, he was in 19th place. The 25-year-old native of Byron, Michigan scored up to 11th place at the Kansas Speedway for the second round of 8 playoffs race.
“It was a difficult day for No. 43 Petty’s Garage Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE team. We never had the right balance where we wanted to, and then we cut a tire that put us far behind towards the end of the race. Hopefully we can bounce back to Martinsville (Va.) Speedway next weekend. “
