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.
Billy Ballew told SiriusXM that he Erik Jones will race Homestead in one of his trucks (and thus be eligible for the Harvick bounty as long as Elliott doesn't get it at Atlanta). #nascar @NASACARONFOX
