Jones qualified the Bayer Aspirin / Alka- Seltzer Pontiac in 13th position for the Autolite Platinum 250. The No. 00 immediately moved into 10th position at the start of the race. On lap 13, Jones was tagged from behind by another car and sent spinning into the wall. The No. 00 Bayer Aspirin / Alka-Seltzer Pontiac suffered a flat tire and extensive damage to the driver's side and rear of the car. The car was taken to the garage and the team worked feverishly to repair the damage so they could finish the race.

Jones returned to the track on lap 133, but immediately told the team there was a steering problem. The No. 00 pitted under caution for adjustments and returned to the track in 42nd position. On lap 191, a caution was called and the No. 00 pitted for four new tires and an adjustment to tighten the car. Jones was able to gain some track position and completed the race in 36th position.
