Erik Jones qualified in the top five and ran near the front of the field for a majority of Sunday‘s (March 10) Cup event at Phoenix Raceway.

After the final restart with 92 laps to go, Chase Briscoe was racing with Jones in the middle of the field when both drivers got four-wide. Things got tight and Jones slapped the outside wall, damaging his car and knocking him off the pace for the rest of the day. He finished 31st, seven laps down.

Jones was not happy with Briscoe after the race, and he expressed as such with Frontstretch.

“[The] No. 14 (Briscoe) is dragging us down over and over, restart after restart,” Jones said. “He put us four wide because he‘s slowing us down so much, and I got wrecked.

“So, that sucks, but he seems to have an issue with me every week. I‘ll call him this week, he probably won‘t call be back, and [I‘d] love to talk to him.”
