What’s Happening?

Brandon Jones said to Frontstretch in 2023 that he has “Two years here” at JR Motorsports, and he is now 1/3 of the way through his second year. While returning to JRM with Menards support is definitely an option, its it Jones’ only option for 2025?

  • Brandon Jones struggled mightily in 2023, missing the Playoffs. This came on the heels of a 2022 season where he was a bump from his teammate away from qualifying for the Championship 4. However, he is currently in Playoff position, albeit winless, as of this writing.
  • JRM is one of the premier teams in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. It’s easy to see Jones coming back, but, there are plenty of options out there.
  • Fans are always curious about JRM’s Xfinity Series program. Many of the best drivers in the sport have come through JRM at some point or another, and this team should look for their best option as well.

Return to JRM

Brandon Jones and JR Motorsports seem to have a solid relationship right now. Jones’ sponsor, Menards, has taken advantage of the Dale Earnhardt Jr. connection by including him in recent Menards commercials. Jones has also improved this season, putting himself in Playoff position.

However, JRM has plenty of prospects on the way up. Could Trackhouse ask Connor Zilisch to run there full-time? What about Carson Kvapil or Connor Mosack?

Kaulig Racing

Kaulig Racing has failed to win a race so far this season. Their prized off-season signing, Josh Williams, is outside of the top 20 in points. Bringing in a proven winner with funding like Brandon Jones could be a big move for Kaulig.

However, Kaulig’s future is uncertain. Rumors of a merger with Trackhouse are rampant, but, should Trackhouse not merge with Kaulig, Jones could boost that Xfinity program.

Joe Gibbs Racing

Brandon Jones enjoyed some solid seasons with JGR early in his Xfinity Series career. He won 5 races and made it to the doorstep of the Championship 4 in 2022. However, the way that season ended could keep Jones from going back.

Jones was knocked out of the way by Ty Gibbs, which cost Jones a spot in Championship 4. If there are still some hurt feelings there, Jones may not go there, but time heals all wounds. Toyota’s stacked prospect pipeline could more than likely keep Jones from this seat as well.

RSS Racing

RSS Racing feels like it’s one top full-time driver away from being a true contendes. They won last year at Sonoma with Aric Almirola, and Ryan Sieg nearly won for the team at Texas. Brandon Jones is a proven Xfinity Series winner.

However, this would be a step down in equipment for Jones. He would be asked to elevate the team instead of the team elevating himself. Can he do that?

Our Motorsports

Out Motorsports has been the surprise of the 2024 Xfinity Series. Anthony Alfredo won the Dash for Cash at Dover and is 10th in points. Could this be a wild card slot for Jones?

The team seems happy with Alfredo, so it might take a second car. Whether or not Our Motorsports wants to do that it is to be determined. It would also be a team Jones needs to elevate himself.
