The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series now heads to Kentucky Speedway next Saturday night.

The win for Jones, 22, was a landmark moment for the Michigan-born driver, as he broke through to claim the victory in his first season and 57th start with Joe Gibbs racing.

"No, it's aggressive speedway racing", he said.

The No. 17 vehicle, despite finding himself involved in a couple of crashes, managed to win both of the first two stages. "We needed to win to get in the playoffs, so it is what it is".

Kyle Busch and William Byron held the lead after 11 laps but were also eliminated in another coming-together less than 12 circuits later. AJ Allmendinger finished third, followed by Kasey Kahne and Chris Buescher. "It's discouraging because even if you're fast and you get up there and race, there's a good shot you're still going to get in a wreck". My first Cup win.

"It was a lot of hard work to be here", he said of Victory Lane.

That ended in a flash as Jones wrote a fairy tale finish to a crash-filled night by zipping past reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr., his former teammate at Furniture Row Racing, for the lead on the last lap of the second overtime.

Truex appeared to be in good shape after grabbing the lead in the first overtime. The caution enabled Jimmie Johnson to return to the lead lap.

JOHNSON PENALIZED: Jimmie Johnson, seeking to end a 40-race winless streak, was running up front with 40 laps to go when his crew serviced the vehicle outside its pit box. Stenhouse found himself involved in five of the eight crashes, and caused two of them.

THE SECOND BIG ONE: The night's second major crash occurred on lap 65.

Kyle Larson, who won the Xfinity Series race Friday night, was out in a crash with Stenhouse.

But the Roush Fenway Racing driver didn't feel a need to apologize.

"There was a ton of torn-up cars so I figured we'd be able to salvage something", Larson said, not knowing there would be a few more added to the wreckage by night's end.

Defending race victor Ricky Stenhouse Jr. started the melee when he tapped and turned Keselowski, who was running third.

"Ricky was doing the best he could to give me a good push and had a great run to take the lead, and the auto in front of me (Byron) just threw a late, bad block", Keselowski said. "He just told me some pretty cool things, so it was cool hanging out with him because I've always been a great fan of him". I know better than that. "I thought we were out of it and all of a sudden we're right back in it".

"I should have wrecked him and sent a message to the whole field".

Stenhouse finished 17th in the race and is 19 points out of the final playoff spot. Following in the top 10 were Kyle Larson, Byron, Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Keselowski, Austin Dillon and Alex Bowman.
