Now retired from Ford, who he joined shortly after his Indy effort. Runs his own development company and still attends races. Danny was also known as "Termite" Jones and largely raced in dirt track racing and stock cars. Danny's father, also called Danny, was one half of the Smith and Jones Camshaft company, and this led to Danny getting involved in racing at a younger age, but the younger Jones also was a qualified mechanic and worked in that role for a research and development firm before beginning racing.
