Jeb Burton NCWTS Preview: Michigan International Speedway

Back on Track...Making their way to the Great Lake State, Jeb Burton and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) head north to tackle Michigan International Speedway in Saturday's Michigan National Guard 200. Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team remain second in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings heading into this weekend's race.

 

This Week's Silverado...The No. 4 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team will unload chassis TSM-220 this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. Although it boasts quite the resume, including Burton's first career win at Texas Motor Speedway, TSM-220 had a disappointing run at Pocono Raceway. Hoping to bounce back, the No. 4 team will try once again to land this truck in victory lane.

 

Stop and Say Hello...If you're at the track on Friday, stop and meet Burton and his TSM teammates at the NCWTS autograph session located in the tent outside of Turn 1 from 4:15 to 5:00 p.m. EDT.

 

Watch and Listen...NASCAR trucks action will be live from Michigan on Saturday, August 17 on the newly branded FOX Sports 1. Coverage begins at 12:00 p.m. EDT. The race can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

 

Previous Race Recap...Making their return to pavement, Burton and the NCWTS headed to the Tricky Triangle of Pocono Raceway. Following a top-three finish in practice, qualifying was cancelled due to rain, placing Burton in third position on the starting grid for the Pocono Mountains 125. Early on, Burton struggled with handling issues and despite several adjustments made by the No. 4 team, Burton was unable to gain solid control of the truck on the 2.5-mile track. Fighting until the end, Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead Chevy crossed the finish line in 12th place.

 

Jeb Burton on Racing at Michigan International Speedway

"To say I'm ready to race at Michigan is an understatement. We just couldn't get things right at Pocono. The handling was off; it felt like it was all over the place the entire race. I know what our team is capable of and I definitely know what our truck can do, so we've put that race behind us and set our focus completely on Michigan. I've been studying race film, talking to teammates and doing some iRacing to prepare. I think our Arrowhead Chevy has a good shot this weekend. Like always, we'll sure give it all we've got."
