Buckshot Jones Track Notes Atlanta Motor Speedway

"I think our team has a firm grasp on being successful at Atlanta. I liked the track before they made the changes and I ran well then, but I like the new configuration as well. This has always been a track that I enjoyed driving and I believe that's part of what makes us successful here." - Buckshot Jones, driver of the No.00 Brunswick Indoor Recreation Pontiac
