Previous Race Recap...Following his sixth top-10 finish of the season, Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team had a disappointing run at Iowa Speedway. After ranking among the fastest in both practice sessions, Burton started the American Ethanol 200 from the 17th position. The No. 4 truck fought back, gaining eleven spots in track position within the first 100 laps. Shortly after, Burton lost control and spun out due to a tight restart, relegating him and the No. 4 team to a 22nd-place finish.
Jeb Burton on Racing at Eldora Speedway
"I'm ready to have some fun on this track. Testing at 311 Motor Speedway was wild and different, but I liked the feel of turning right and our truck handled it really well. I think we'll be able to put on a good show at Eldora and hopefully come out of there with a top-10 finish and in one piece. After Iowa, I'm just ready to get back into the groove of consistency."
