"I'm really excited about this opportunity," said Jones. "The Yellow team almost won the race at Nashville a couple of months ago. And I know that the
team expects to contend for the win again this time."
This will be the first NASCAR Busch Series start for Jones in two and a half years.
During his 145-race Busch Series career, Jones has scored two wins, 13 top-five and 33 top-10 finishes.
In the first race at Nashville this year, the Yellow team with Johnny Benson behind the wheel went into next-to-last lap of the race with a chance to

Benson ended up seventh.
