Erik Jones salvaged his season and, quite possibly, his career with Joe Gibbs Racing when he took home the checkered flag in the rain soaked Bojangles Southern 500. Racing in his 100th Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, Jones had to wait an extra four hours for the opportunity to capture his second career victory, and his first win at Darlington Raceway. “Well, it’s pretty special, my 100th start. I guess sometimes funny things happen, right, and 100th start we’re in victory lane… so it’s pretty special,” Jones said. “It’s been a big year of speculation and maybe moving around and I don’t think there’s much more to say than this right here, so it’s pretty good.”
