Erik Jones Takes Checkered Flag at Darlington
Congratulations to Marathon coach owner Erik Jones on winning the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina, over the weekend. Erik crossed the finish line in the top spot despite a four-hour rain delay and a huge pileup near the end of the race, leading the pack for the last 40 laps to secure the victory. The win is Erik’s first this season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and secures him an automatic bid in the Cup Series Playoffs. Great job, Erik!
