Editor’s Note: Our interview with Bret Holmes is rescheduled according to the rescheduling of the Five Flags Speedway ARCA East race.

ARCA Menards Series driver Bret Holmes is coming off a great season finishing third in the series point standings last year. This year he’s taking Bret Holmes Racing in a new direction with a new look. And it’s all about winning in 2020.

The organization currently plans on running 14 events this season with new blue and white color scheme representing the No. 23 team. What’s not changing this year is that crew chief Shane Huffman is at the top of the pit box for every race. Last season the duo of Holmes and Huffman worked together garnering eight top-five and 18 top-ten finishes in 20 starts.

Brandon Jones Takes the ARCA Pole at Chicagoland Speedway

Coming off the hauler, Brandon Jones didn’t think his car was that good, they were fighting it free most of the day.  By the end of the ARCA Racing Series practice, that all changed when he and his crew chief hit on something that made a big difference for his No. 33 MDM Motorsports team.

“Shane Huffman has been my crew chief for a couple of years now, and we’ve cycled back into things since, I’m at MDM this year, said Jones after winning the pole award. “He kind of knows what I’m looking for’ he knows my feel (for the car) and we hit on something with about ten minutes to go in practice.

“All-in-all qualifying on the pole I think is going to be really good. It’s not a bad place to start from and hopefully, everything in the race will go the way we need it to go.”

Practice and qualifying during the day can mean a difference from racing in the evening when the sun starts setting. But, Jones knows what to expect from the track at Chicagoland Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series’ Scott’s 150.

“Usually, here at night it frees up a little bit,” continued Jones. “And I think we’ve got the car tightened up just enough to be pretty good for tonight. That’s what we’re expecting anyway. We’ll have to see what happens by the first pit stop and make the call after that.”

The ARCA Racing Series’ Scott’s 150 starts at 8 pm ET tonight at Chicagoland Speedway with coverage on FOX Sports 1.

But in Saturday’s Careers for Veterans 200 at Michigan International Speedway, Moffitt picked the perfect time to take the point for the first time.

Powering around Red Horse Racing teammate Timothy Peters and five-time series winner William Byron off the second corner of the final lap at the two-mile track, Moffitt held off Peters by 0.098 seconds to win a NASCAR national series race for the first time.

Brandon Jones is our guest on Fan4Racing Fan2Fan NASCAR & Race Talk on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 9 pm ET. Call 929-477-1790 or tweet @Fan4RacingSite, @Sal_Sigala or @beberly18 with any questions or comments during our LIVE broadcast.

In his début at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Brandon Jones’ patience brought him to his third top-five of the 2015 season. Jones’ finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rhino Linings 350 is his career best 1.5-mile finish.

After strong practice and qualifying sessions, Jones started from the third position and for the first 15 laps, he managed a loose car and tight on exit conditions while navigating traffic. Coming to pit road under caution on lap 21, Jones took two tires, fuel and both an air pressure and track bar adjustment and returned to the track in fifth, with the leaders taking only fuel.

On the restart, Jones’ No. 33 was extremely loose. Crew chief Shane Huffman brought Jones to pit road for his last stop on lap 93, for four tires, fuel and a track bar adjustment under green flag conditions.

As the rest of the field cycled through pit stops, Jones returned to the top-ten, just outside the top-five until the last laps of the race, finishing in the fifth position. The No. 33 is now eighth in the series owner point standings.

“We had a really fast RSD Chevrolet today,” said Jones during his post-race interview. “I felt like we were chasing the track throughout the entire race. We went from being tight to really loose and never quite got a hold of the right balance. Shane (Huffman, crew chief) made some really great calls to get us the track position we needed to be running up front at the end. I’m glad we were able to pick up another top-five finish for GMS Racing and the No. 33 team.“

Jones’s next Camping World Truck Series start for GMS Racing is at Talladega Superspeedway on October 24th.
