Jeb Burton NCWTS Preview: Texas Motor Speedway

Time To Two Step...Jeb Burton heads to Fort Worth, Texas as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) makes its first start of the season at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS). Burton has never competed at TMS in his short NCWTS career, but he's proven himself at intermediate tracks. In only 11 NCWTS starts, Burton has scored two poles and three top-10 finishes at tracks one to two miles long.


This Week's Silverado...Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team will utilize powerhouse chassis TSM-220 for Friday's race at TMS. This is the same chassis Burton and his team used to capture the pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway before bringing home a top-15 finish.


Come Say Hi...Burton and his NCWTS teammates will be signing autographs next to Hospitality Village outside of Turn 1 on Friday, June 7. The session will run from 4:30-5:30 p.m. CDT.

Previous Race Recap...Burton continued his early-season success by taming the 'Monster Mile' and capturing his fourth top-10 finish of 2013. The Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate has been handling himself like a veteran, claiming three poles in the first five races of the season while maintaining second in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings. The rookie qualified third on the board and battled sweltering heat before claiming a ninth-place finish.


Jeb Burton on Racing at Texas Motor Speedway

"I'm looking forward to heading to Texas [Motor Speedway], if for no other reason than the momentum it gives us. It's good anytime we can race back-to-back weekends because it keeps you in a groove. We've been good at intermediate tracks and we're bringing a good truck, so I'm hoping to get myself one of those cowboy hats in victory lane."
