Brandon Jones also had a record year in the Xfinity Series with his best season to date. He started the year by earning a milestone for Toyota – the 500th NASCAR victory – at the spring race at Phoenix Raceway. He continued to show strength at Kansas Speedway with a masterful green-white-checkered restart to earn his second win of the season. He added a third victory in a throwback Toyota championship scheme on Labor Day weekend at Darlington Raceway. Jones advanced to the Round of 8 in the Playoffs and earned career-bests in wins, top-fives and top-10s in a single season. He also drove to his first-career Truck Series win at Pocono Raceway in June.

He was one of three Toyota rookies this season with Derek Kraus having a very consistent year led by a runner-up finish at Darlington Raceway and Raphael Lessard, who earned a victory at Talladega Superspeedway in Toyota’s 400th Truck Series event.
