2020 NASCAR Q&A: Monster Energy NASCAR Cup - Erik Jones


ERIK JONES, DRIVER OF THE NO. 43 RICHARD PETTY MOTORSPORTS CHEVROLET CAMARO ZL1 1LE, met with media via teleconference to discuss his anticipation going into the 2021 season, how the team has been preparing for their first season together, and more. Full Transcript:

BEING IN THE CLASH IS GOOD BEING WITH A NEW TEAM, BUT HOW MUCH MORE IMPORTANT IS IT NOW THAT THERE’S GOING TO BE A RACE THERE A FEW WEEKS LATER?
“Yeah, like you said, it was going to be big either way – thinking about going there and now really having any practice. Just getting in a new car, there’s going to be a lot of different things – from the way the motor runs, brakes, steering, everything is going to be totally different for me. So, just being able to get on track, have some laps on something other than the superspeedway at Daytona. Especially a road course, you have to really try out every system in your car. So, I think that’s going to be really important. And plus, now going into the road course after Daytona, is even bigger for me. We’re going to be able to take what we’ve learned in that race and, hopefully, improve on it.”

Live Fast Motorsports announced today that it will be competing full-time in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season as part of a strategic alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing and operate the No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports Ford Mustang. Co-owners B.J. McLeod and Matt Tifft were part of a NASCAR Zoom call to discuss their new organization.

MATT TIFFT, No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports Ford Mustang – HOW DID THIS ALL COME TOGETHER? “Actually, B.J. and I have been good friends for a long time and we started talking about this a few months before the announcement was made and we never thought in our wildest dreams that something like this would come to fruition, but lo and behold this situation with Archie came about to where he was wanting to exit the sport and still stay involved part-time. I talked about in previous years many years down the road before my health problems came up that I’d love to be an owner in this sport. I love NASCAR and I saw the pattern of what was happening between the other new owners and the things going on in the sport and just always thought I’d love to be a part of that side post-driving. I didn’t think the post-driving was gonna come as quick as it did, but B.J. has been a great team owner in this sport from every level, so when he and I got together – we were at dinner one night—and started talking about, ‘Hey, maybe this is something we’d like to do in the future,’ we didn’t think it was gonna come as quick as it did. I’m just so excited to be a team owner in the NASCAR Cup Series and I wouldn’t be wanting to do it with anybody else. B.J. is a great guy, but also more than that a great businessman and knows how to run a team. I just can’t wait to get this venture started.”

Cole Custer, driver of the No. 41 HaasTooling.com Ford Mustang, is this year’s Sunoco Rookie of the Year in the NASCAR Cup Series after his win at Kentucky Speedway cinched a spot in the Playoffs. Custer was part of a Q&A session today to discuss his season and officially winning the yearly award.

COLE CUSTER, No. 41 HaasTooling.com Ford Mustang – CAN YOU EVALUATE YOUR SEASON? “Definitely a lot of ups and downs. I think with any rookie year it’s like that, but this year was probably to the extreme by not having practice, not having testing, not having qualifying. It definitely wasn’t an easy year to be a rookie, but I think we all made the best out of it and I think we all made a lot of progression throughout the year. I think from our standpoint to have a race win, to make the playoffs, I think we can call it a success. Did we want to run better a lot of the time? Yeah, for sure, but I think we definitely made some huge strides in making more consistent runs and I think it’s just a matter of taking it to the next level to be consistently in the next group of cars.”
