Jagger Jones, grandson of Parnelli, lands K&N West ride

By

Jagger Jones, the 16-year-old grandson of 1963 Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones, is making his move from the NASCAR Whelen All- American Late Models to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.

Jones will pilot the No. 6 Ford for Sunrise Ford Racing, with Stock Car Hall of Fame driver Bill Sedgwick serving as his crew chief.

In 2018, Jones clinched the Kern County Raceway NASCAR Whelen All-American Late Model Championship with five wins at the 1⁄2 mile banked track. He also had 10 wins and podium finishes at Lake Havasu Speedway and Irwindale Speedway in only his second year as a late model driver.

Jones additionally ran three east-coast races for Dale Earnhardt Jr at JR Motorsports in the No. 88 late model car, winning the race at Myrtle Beach Speedway.

“I’m really looking forward to a new car, and the 2019 season with Sunrise Ford Racing.” he said “This year’s schedule includes such an amazing variety of tracks. From the dirt track in Las Vegas, the road course at Sonoma Raceway on a NASCAR Cup weekend, to short tracks like Kern and Irwindale, Iowa and Gateway on IndyCar race weekends, and then racing at my hometown track at ISM Raceway. I can’t wait for this season to begin. I’m going to do my best to use my experience to win some races.”
