Blake Jones to run Cup race at Talladega for Spire Motorsports

Blake Jones confirmed to Frontstretch that he’ll return to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Talladega Superspeedway in under two weeks. Jones will pilot the No. 77 Tennessee Shine Co. Chevrolet Camaro for Spire Motorsports.

"First of all, I’d like to thank God for all he does not only for me but for all of us," Jones told Frontstretch. "It’s an honor to drive for a team of this caliber – they for sure know how to win – and for the opportunity to drive this race is totally amazing. Hopefully, we can live up to their expectations and have a good finish."

Jones ran three races last season with BK Racing including his debut at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. His most recent race was at Bristol Motor Speedway where he earned his career-best finish of 27th. He has one career victory at Talladega Superspeedway, coming in 2015 with Cunningham Motorsports in the ARCA Menards Series.
