Erik Jones to race the No. 20 car for Joe Gibbs

One of the brightest young stars in NASCAR is changing teams. 

Erik Jones will drive the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starting in 2018.

The 21-year old currently drives the No. 77 Toyota for Furniture Row Racing.

This is his first year driving in the Monster Energy Series and he's done well for himself with five top-10 finishes in his first 18 races.  

The Byron, Michigan native has routinely raced in West Michigan: He won the Battle at Berlin 251 in 2015 and 2016 and three weeks ago he raced in the Money in the Bank 150, also at Berlin Raceway. 

Jones has eight victories in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and has seven wins in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, where he was the series champion in 2015.
