NASCAR driver Erik Jones may be young, but don’t ever say that he doesn’t have style.
As of now, the 24-year-old Jones hasn’t yet joined the likes of Bubba Wallace among the younger household racing names. That could change, however, after Jones joined Richard Petty Motorsports for the upcoming 2021 season.
Jones may cultivate a bigger fanbase after recently sharing his car collection, which includes classic Corvettes, on social media.
Erik Jones is a young NASCAR driver
Born in Byron, Mich., Erik Jones got his start at the Truck Series Level in 2013.
Jones was only 17 years, five months, and eight days when he won the Lucas Oil 150 in November 2013. At only 19 years old, Jones participated in several races at the Cup Series level in 2015.
By 2017, Jones had an opportunity to race full-time at the Cup Series level for Furniture Row Racing. Jones spent 2018-20 at Joe Gibbs Racing, finishing anywhere from 15th-17th in each of the last three seasons.
Now 24 years old, Jones has two wins and 62 top-10 finishes in 147 races over parts of five seasons.
Jones has an impressive car collection at his age
Erik Jones is only 24 — and he doesn’t turn 25 until May 2021 — which makes him one of NASCAR’s youngest full-time drivers.
Age is only a number, though, especially when it pertains to wealth and style. Despite being as young as he is, Jones already has an extremely impressive car collection.
Jones recently shared his three-car library on social media, including a full tour on his official Facebook page.
Three cars may not sound like much, but Jones isn’t only keeping 2020 trucks at his home. The collection includes a 2019 ZRI and a pair of classic Corvettes from the 1960s.
Jones said he spent multiple years restoring a 1969 Corvette and bought a 1965 Corvette, one which once belonged to his father.
Jones has a barn on his residence that also includes a motorcycle and a tractor.
Erik Jones is a name to know for the 2021 season
Besides continuing to grow at the Cup Series Level, Erik Jones has dreams of one day owning a 1967 Corvette.
A successful 2021 season could help Jones accomplish both of those goals. Jones joined Richard Petty Motorsports for the coming campaign, and he is certainly a name to know next year.
Jones is entering his fifth season as a full-time racer, and five could wind up being the magic number. The 2021 racing season is expected to begin in February with Daytona week and the Daytona 500.
Erik Jones will drive the No. 43 for Petty Motorsports. Bubba Wallace, who last held that role, joined Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin’s 23XI Racing earlier this year. Wallace will drive the No. 23 car for the basketball and racing icons.
