Barwick driver comes from family of successful racers

By David Ching

THOMASVILLE -- Judging by his family's history of auto racing success, it's not hard to figure out why Barwick native Tom Jones Jr. has been winning so many races of late.

Jones' father, Tom Jones Sr., was a fixture on the area racing scene for decades, and his brother-in-law, Morgan Shepherd, has had a long career on racing's grandest stage, NASCAR.

Growing up around the sport, the younger Jones has been a racing enthusiast since he was just a boy.
