“Getting the chance to compete at Daytona is an unreal feeling,” Jones said. “I’m really looking forward to learning as much as I can and gaining valuable experience in my first IMSA event. I really can’t thank everyone on the ALARA Racing team enough for opportunity and we’ll work towards a strong showing this week.”
