IK9, Musket Powder, MOJO Outdoors team up to put Jones in sleek new ride
Following his first Xfinity Series win at Kansas Speedway in October, Brandon Jones looks to prolong his success in the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing IK9 Toyota Supra at Texas Motor Speedway this Saturday, and he will be riding in style.
Jones will once again be driving with the IK9 and Xtreme Concepts Racing team, who has helped the 22-year-old driver find season-long success. This time, the Supra will sport a fresh scheme by IK9, Musket Powder, and MOJO Outdoors.
The No. 19 Supra will sport a sleek black body, peppered with scorching orange flames along the front and sides. The license plate reads “DUCKDOG,” a nod to the team-up between IK9, a world-class canine solutions provider, and MOJO Outdoors, the world leader in motion decoys and innovative outdoor products. WardDanger LLC’s delicious Musket Powder rub’s simple yet recognizable logo decorates the hood, while the license plate promotes 1st Foundation, a non-profit organization that aids both veterans and first responders.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 in Fort Worth, Texas will serve as the fifth race of the 2019 Xfinity Series Playoffs, and the second of the Round of 8. For Jones, the much-anticipated race will be his 135th start and first following his recent victory.
So far, the No. 19 driver has racked up 14 top-10 finishes, with five coming in the top-5. This weekend, Jones hopes to add another notch to that list.
Luckily for Jones, the IK9 team has experience winning at “The Great American Speedway” in the Xfinity Series. In March, Kyle Busch rocketed the No. 18 IK9 Supra past Tyler Reddick to clench the win. Jones will be looking to have his own strong finish Saturday night.
The looming playoff implications are making this Xfinity Series race one of the most anticipated of the season. At the center of much of the chaos is Jones, who is expected to have another strong finish, further complicating the playoff picture for many.
The 2019 O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 will air at 7:30 PM CT, November 2nd, on NBCS.
