Menards will sponsor Brandon Jones in his move to JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2023, JRM announced Nov. 3.
Menards will be a primary sponsor on Jones’ No. 9.
“To be able to make this transition to JRM alongside Menards is a dream come true for me,” Jones said in a team release. “I am eager to win races and championships with Menards’ continued support. It will be significant to have my longtime sponsor and John Menard reunite with Dale [Earnhardt Jr., owner] and JRM. JRM’s commitment to their partners is second to none, and I can’t wait to come out of the gate strong with them in 2023.”
Added Earnhardt, “I’m happy for the chance to work with John and Menards again. Menards sponsored one of the most dominant cars I ever drove in the Xfinity Series. I have some great memories of winning races together. John and his company are big supporters of racing and have been for many years. I’m glad to have them at JRM backing Brandon.”
Jones moves from Joe Gibbs Racing, for whom he’s driven the No. 19 in the series since 2018.
In 2022, Jones has one win, six top fives and 13 top 10s.
