Erik Jones makes it 2 straight this season with Xfinity win

Publish date:

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) Erik Jones has back-to-back Xfinity Series victories after a win Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Jones also won at Texas Motor Speedway on April 8. He was the defending race winner at Bristol from last year.

Jones won in a Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing on Saturday, but he's shown strong speed in his Furniture Row Racing car all weekend in preparation for the Cup race on Sunday.

Ryan Blaney finished second - the same result he's had in all three Xfinity Series races he's entered.

''Three seconds this year, so that's getting old,'' Blaney said.

Daniel Suarez was third to give the JGR cars two spots in the top three. Xfinity Series leader Elliott Sadler was fourth.

Daniel Hemric won a $100,000 bonus from Xfinity as part of its Dash-4-Cash program. He finished fifth.
