Last season's rookie of the year makes a step into a new race team in 2018. Jones will take over the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota that Matt Kenseth spent the last several seasons racing. The 21-year-old driver made a big splash last year with five Top-5 and 14 Top-10 finishes. Jones flirted with victory on a couple occasions with strong outings at Bristol, Michigan and Pocono. He showed that he could not only hold his own with the best in the series, but he could lead lots of laps and challenge for wins. With the move to the No. 20 Toyota team even more resources will be at Jones disposal. He'll continue to be paired with crew chief Chris Gayle, and that continuity will be key to his success. Jones has a tremendous opportunity to outperform anyone's expectations in the upcoming season.
Car: No. 20 Toyota   Crew Chief: Chris Gayle

  2. Erik Jones 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The 20-year-old Joe Gibbs Racing prodigy has spent the last four seasons carving up both the Camping World Truck Series and Xfinity Series. Over that span he's won one championship (trucks) and 13-combined victories. Jones' 74-combined Top-10 finishes in 100 starts between the two series speaks volumes of his abilities. Now he'll get his first full-time shot at NASCAR's top division. Joe Gibbs Racing affiliate team, Furniture Row Racing, has expanded to two teams in 2017. That will make room to put Jones in a strong Toyota Camry. He will be paired with crew chief Chris Gayle and the two will be top contenders to win this season's Rookie of the Year honors. Jones is incredibly talented, but he will face a bit of a learning curve in the Monster Energy Cup Series cars due to his lack of experience at this level, only three career starts.
  3. Erik Jones 2014 Preseason Outlook
    The Joe Gibbs Racing wunderkind is poised for a championship run in this series in 2016. Jones nabbed the Camping World Truck Series crown last year and piled up five-combined victories between Xfinity and the truck series in 2015. He’ll take over the No. 20 Toyota full-time, which was raced by a multi-driver lineup last season. Jones made just 23 starts last season for this team and the No. 54 JGR team and compiled some impressive numbers. He raked in 13 Top-5 and 17 Top-10 finishes in addition to his two wins. When projected over a full season, it indicates Jones will be one of the top contenders to win the Xfinity Series championship this year.
