Erik Jones to run Charlotte truck race: UPDATE

Jones won’t be racing after all. Due to a high number of entries at Charlotte, Jones did not make the field.

Original post: Erik Jones will compete in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Jones announced via Twitter. He will drive the No. 5 Toyota with support from Billy Ballew, James Finch and Richie Wauters.

Before the outbreak of COVID-19 forced NASCAR to postpone races, Jones was slated to compete in the Truck race at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the No. 5 team. The race was supposed to be one of the races with the bounty on Kyle Busch.

No announcement has been made whether Jones will compete in the rescheduled Truck Series race at Homestead on June 13.
