For the first time since 2018, Erik Jones will return to Slinger Speedway for the prestigious Slinger Nationals on Tuesday, July 6. The NASCAR Cup Series driver for Richard Petty Motorsports has partnered with Wisconsin native John DeAngelis to field a car for the Super Late Model event.
“We did some work for Todd Thelen at the Speedway and he knows we have really good equipment,” DeAngelis told Speed51.com. “He mentioned to me that Erik may be looking for a car for the Nationals. I’ve spoken to Erik a few times before and have raced against him a few times; we’ve made small talk at the track, so I reached out to him and within a few hours we had a deal in place for him to pilot our second Super Late Model at Slinger Nationals.”
