Blake Jones Bio

Blake Jones is a young racer and his career is just getting started. With aspirations to one day be like his idols Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch.

In a recent interview following his first ever Monster Energy Cup Series race Jones said, “Starting a Cup race is just a different world out there compared to what we’re used to, even in the Xfinity Series.”

“You’re out there with the best drivers in the world but we just wanted to run all the laps and learn all we can to get familiar with the cars. It was the first time I had ever sat in a Cup car this weekend.”

While Jones may not have as much experience as his idols, his achievements so far indicate he does have the talent.

NASCAR Xfinity Series and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series

So far in his young career, Jones has a total of 8 races in Xfinity and Cup Series combined. That being said, he does know how to win.

In ARCA and X-1R Series he had 20 top-10 finishes and won the International Motorsports Hall of Fame 200 in 2015 at Talladega. That result being extra special as he became the youngest ever winner at the Talladega Superspeedway.

First NASCAR Win

Following that he had his next best season at the ARCA Series level in 2015 with three top-10s and one champagne popping podium celebration.
