Joining Rev Racing in January 2023, Jones carries over 40 years of professional experience in all four national motorsports series (NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, and ARCA Menards Series). Jones will also lead the charge for the No. 2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet piloted by Andres Perez de Lara. Glenn Parker will serve as the Car Chief, who was part of Nick Sanchez’s team winning the AMS Driver Championship in 2022. 

“I’m looking forward to this season and working with the drivers here,” said Jones. “We have great cars this year and I’m excited to continue to build upon what they have done here at Rev.” 

In 2014, the Virginia native served as crew chief for driver Mason Mitchell as the duo earned the ARCA Menards Series championship. Prior to joining Rev Racing, Jones worked at AM Racing, where he oversaw operations and led the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series program. The highlight of his 2022 season was guiding rookie Max Gutierrez to an eighth-place finish in only his second career Truck Series start. He hopes to continue the momentum with driver Andres Perez de Lara. 

“I am really looking forward to working with him (Jones) and learning from all of his experiences he has from the sport,” said Andres Perez de Lara. “I am going to take advantage of what he has to offer and the chemistry we’ll make working with one another.”

Throughout his career, Jones has accumulated the highest of honors – from championships and race wins to poles and countless top-10 results. The veteran racer began his motorsports journey with driver Elton Sawyer and captured the 1995 NASCAR Xfinity Series championship as a car chief with driver Johnny Benson. Jones has worked with top talent at Red Horse Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing, Braun Racing, and MDM Motorsports. 

Jones and Perez de Lara participated in the practice session in Daytona on Jan. 13th and 14th. Due to age restrictions, Perez will make his ARCA Menards Series debut, with Rev Racing, at Phoenix Raceway on March 10th.
