Erik Jones claimed back-to-back Xfinity Series victories, at both Bristol Motor Speedway and on the season.
Rain has forced the postponement of the NASCAR Cup race from Sunday afternoon to Monday at Bristol Motor Speedway.
"We were racing hard", said Jones, who overcame a pit road speeding penalty with 70 laps to go. "I don't think there's any reason for cause for concern yet".
Daniel Suarez was third to give the JGR cars two spots in the top three.
NASCAR typically would wait out the weather, especially at Bristol where the nearby mountains can impact rain cells, but the unlikelihood of at least a three-hour window to dry the track and get to Lap 250 for an official race appeared dim, so NASCAR made the decision more than two hours before the scheduled start of the event. Kyle Larson will start from pole. He garnered the top starting point as a result of rain forcing the cancellation of qualifying on Friday and the starting grid being set by vehicle owner points.

Busch is a five-time victor at Bristol, but hasn't been to victory lane in his Cup auto since 2011. "That happened before and I said right then I wouldn't let it happen again". He listed Larson, Elliott, and Team Penske teammates Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano as the biggest threats, but noted that he goes into the race certain he will be the victor. "Bristol, this is one of my best wheelhouses and I really enjoy coming here".
"If you would have told me that we were going to win the race, I would have told you you were insane", said Chris Gabehart, crew chief for Jones and the No. 20 Toyota team.
Larson, the points leader, loves his chances.
"It's nice to be the point leader and be starting up front here at Bristol". "I didn't know whether we had a winning vehicle or not". "I just don't qualify well".
