Brandon Jones will replace Noah Gragson in the JR Motorsports No. 9 entry in 2023.
JR Motorsports announced Wednesday (Sept. 14) NASCAR Xfinity Series veteran Brandon Jones will take over the seat next year.
“They’re a threat to win every week, and one of the premier teams in our series,” Jones said in a press release.
“I’m so thankful to Dale (Earnhardt Jr.), Kelley and Mr. Hendrick for allowing me to be part of it.”
Jones has raced full-time in the Xfinity Series since 2016, racing for Richard Childress and Joe Gibbs Racing.
Jones has been a part of the JGR stable since 2018, earning five wins with the organization, including one this season.
“Brandon’s been a tough competitor over the years, and he’s a talented addition to JR Motorsports,” said Kelley Earnhardt Miller, JRM co-owner and general manager in a press release.
“He’s a series veteran that brings a lot of experience, and we’re going to see big things from Brandon and the 9 team in 2023.”
