Erik Jones still working on 2021


Erik Jones finished second in Sunday’s Cup race at Talladeaga Speedway and met with the media afterwards.

Q. You’ve had quite a last month, strung some strong races together. What does a race like today do for your hand as you try to find a ride for next year? Where exactly are you as far as finding a new situation?

ERIK JONES: I’m still working for 2021. There’s still some things I’m trying to work out, get locked in for next year.

I don’t know that it really changes my hand at all with them. The teams I’m in discussion with I’ve been in discussion with a for a while anyway. I don’t know that this is going to change it.

I’ve told teams here in the last few months, I know I can do it, I’ve won a couple of these races and feel like we could have won more along the way. Haven’t always had it click here. I’ve enjoyed my time at JGR, but wish we could have won more races along the way.

I don’t know, this last month has been awesome as a driver, running strong, run up front. I don’t know it changes too much what I’ve got going.
