Brandon Jones will once again return to pilot the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Supra for the full NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule in 2022. The team made the announcement on Wednesday.

This will mark the fifth season that Jones has driven for Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

According to a release from the team, Menards will be the full season sponsor for the No. 19 car and crew chief Jeff Meendering will return next season as well as Jones and the No. 19 team look to chase a championship in 2022.

“This has been a very strong season so far and I couldn’t be prouder of our 19 team,” stated Jones in the team release. “It will be great to have Jeff Meendering back as my crew chief for the third consecutive year; his leadership is exactly what this team needs. I also realize how fortunate I am to have partners like Menards and Toyota; their support means the world to me. I couldn’t be more excited to have Menards return and more importantly, their support for the full season. It’s huge. I am thrilled to be back at Joe Gibbs Racing next season. Right now, I remain focused on our championship run and making it to Phoenix this year for a shot at the Xfinity Series title.”

For JGR, Jones, provides stability in a NASCAR Xfinity Series driver lineup that will look very different next season.

“Brandon provides a veteran driver presence in the Xfinity Series for us,” said Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing. “He has advanced into the final eight of the NASCAR playoffs for the second consecutive year and now our focus is to make it into the next round with the opportunity to race for the championship in Phoenix. We’re excited to have him back next season with the opportunity to represent Menards every week.”

Jones is currently in the thick of the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs Round of 8. Jones will attempt to work his way into the Championship 4 this weekend at Kansas and next weekend at Martinsville.

The 24-year old driver has scored four NASCAR Xfinity Series wins in 200-career starts and Jones has finished inside the top-10 of the championship standings in four of the last five seasons. He’ll finish inside the top-10 in the standings once things are all said and done in 2021, as well.

The native of Atlanta, Georgia, has a career-average finish of 15.5 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Jones returning to the No. 19 team is the latest silly season domino to fall for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. Here is the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series driver / team chart:
