It’s been weird and whacky with how the Kansas Lottery 300 played out in the NASCAR XFINITY Series yesterday.
You’ve seen how intense the battles come up for grabs, especially when a few of them lost it via cautions.
These examples we’ve looked at were the likes of Cole Custer and Tyler Reddick, who both made it to the semi-final rounds at this level.
Both Custer and Reddick got involved in a caution one time then at post-race turned the finger upon each other at pit road.
So does fellow contenders who are the moment trying to make their way to the Championship 4 Finale at Homestead-Miami.
Moments before the checkered flag, Christopher Bell and Chase Briscoe had a great battle back & forth, looking to stamp their crown in victory lane.
But likewise, with the battle gone too intense, Bell & Briscoe slid on the other side of the race track.
Although, for Briscoe, he recovered in the end right at 3rd with tape in the rear end of the car, unlike Bell, who finished 12th.
So that leaves one conclusion from a driver who we’ve never seen in victory lane before.
He may not have advanced further in this year’s Playoffs as proved to be inconsistent for most of the year.
However, Br. Jones proved everyone wrong with the best finish in this level, P1 & a trip to victory lane.
I’m sure his first NXS win at Kansas will lead a lot more positive things to come.
He could well go on and finish 9th in the Drivers’ Standings for the second straight time having done once before in 2018.
As long as it remains consistent with only three races left of the season, Br.Jones will be fine to reach that goal.
Furthermore, thanks to his dad’s business connections & sponsorship dollars, Br. Jones will stay for another year at Joe Gibbs Racing in 2020.
By then, he’ll be hopeful of learning the mistakes from the past before flipping towards several positive things:
- Winning more races
- Being consistent
- Winning the Championship
He doesn’t need to rush, just let him take his time.
Once again, congratulations to him on reaching his best race finish in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
And that’s it for now.
The second tier race cars will be back in a fortnight on Saturday, November 2, at Texas Motor Speedway for the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts 300.
