About

NASCAR driver spent 15 years in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Cup series, finishing more than 30 races in the Top Ten.

Before Fame

His grandfather dubbed him 'buckshot' after Jones ran smack into a table and apparently didn't feel a thing.

Trivia

After a disappointing rookie season with his own Buckshot Racing team, he hired the son of the legendary David Pearson as his crew chief, and began winning races - while also gathering a reputation for being an aggressive, crash-causing driver.

Family Life

He was born in Monticello, Georgia, joining the stock car circuit at the suggestion of his father, who thought that would be safer than Buckshot's other choice, motocross.

Associated With

He had a longstanding feud with fellow racer Randy LaJoie.
