Byron, Michigan native Erik Jones looks to do it again. One year after winning the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship and its Sunoco Rookie of the Year award, Jones aims to capture the NASCAR XFINITY Series title and its Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award. At 20 years, 5 months and 20 days, Jones would be the third-youngest champion in NASCAR XFINITY Series history.

If he does accomplish the feat, he’d join Johnny Benson, Austin Dillon and Greg Biffle as the only drivers with a NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series crown.
