Erik Jones working on contract extension

Erik Jones told NBC Sports on Thursday that he and Joe Gibbs Racing are “working through an extension” for him to remain with the team and that he has “no plans to leave JGR.” “I don’t think there’s any plans to change anything,” Jones said. “It’s just a matter of both sides agreeing to an agreement, which takes time. I imagine here soon we’ll have something ironed out. I think both sides are pretty set on staying on the path we got.” The 22-year-old is in his third year in the Cup Series and his second at JGR after moving over from Furniture Row in 2017. JGR did not respond to a request for comment on if 2019 was the last year on Jones’ contract.(NBC Sports)(4-4-2019)
