Erik Jones Joining Kyle Busch Bounty Hunt at Homestead-Miami Speedway

Erik Jones will throw his hat into the ring for the Kyle Busch bounty for the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway (March 20). His involvement was announced via a tweet from the track’s official account.

Jones, Busch’s Cup Series teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing, will pilot a truck for Billy Ballew Motorsports, per a tweet from Bob Pockrass. The team is not scheduled to run the series in 2020 outside of Jones’ appearance.

The bounty was originally $50,000, as put up by Kevin Harvick. Marcus Lemonis matched the amount to bring the bounty to $100,000.

Jones joins fellow Cup Series drivers Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott, who will drive for GMS Racing, at Homestead. Elliott will also drive at Atlanta Motor Speedway at March 14.

I guess sc one of the truck series regulars might as well not show up. What a frigging joke.
