Although this story was broken by Dustin Albino of Frontstretch.com a month ago, Brandon Jones and Joe Gibbs Racing officially announced an extension on Thursday.
The announcement comes a couple of weeks after Jones’ first-career NASCAR Xfinity Series win, which came at Kansas Speedway.
“I couldn’t be happier to be back and race in 2020 with Joe Gibbs Racing,” stated Brandon Jones in a team release. “I am very proud of my team and the huge strides and experience we have gained over the past two years. I am ready for this next opportunity and challenge. “
No sponsorship was announced in the press release, all of that information will be released at a later date. But JGR is excited to have Jones back for another year.
“We are excited to have Brandon back at Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) in 2020 and with his experience take over as the senior driver in our NASCAR Xfinity Series program”, stated Steve deSouza, Executive Vice President of XFINITY and Development for Joe Gibbs Racing. “He has steadily improved over the past two years and has proven that he can compete with the top contenders in the series. We expect him to be a top challenger for the championship next year.”
