From the Cockpit - Erik Jones: "It's pretty neat to race at Indy. I remember my first time at the track in the XFINITY Series a couple of years ago and how cool that was and now my first Brickyard 400. I think that's another milestone for anyone's career. I'm excited to make my first start in the brickyard and hopefully have a good showing. It's just neat to be at Indy and close to home really for me. It's neat to be there at a track that not only has the Brickyard 400, but the Indy 500 and all the history involved is pretty special.
