Jeb Burton NCWTS Preview: Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

Twists and Turns...Making its return to road-course racing after 13 years, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) will cross the Canadian border this week for some winding roads and tricky turns. On Sunday afternoon, Jeb Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team will take on the 2.459-mile course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for the three-day event surrounding the inaugural Chevrolet Silverado 250 on Labor Day weekend.


This Week's Silverado...
The No. 4 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team will unload chassis TSM-501 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this weekend. With no previous road-course experience, Burton and the No. 4 team tested the Chevrolet Silverado at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) in early August.  

 

Watch and Listen...Be sure to catch the NCWTS action as the trucks go road-course racing on Labor Day weekend. Coverage will be live from Canada on Sunday, September 1 on FOX Sports 1 beginning at 1:30 p.m. EDT. The race can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

 

Previous Race Recap...Burton and the NCWTS put on an impressive show at Bristol Motor Speedway as they raced under the lights for the UNOH 200. Making multiple adjustments throughout the one-day event, the No. 4 Arrowhead Chevy landed outside the top 10 in both practice sessions and qualified 18th, despite a spin during the warm-up lap. Burton remained patient during the race and managed to fight his way into the top 10 just before a last-lap incident forced the No. 4 truck into the wall, resulting in a 12th-place finish and a one-position drop in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings.

 

Jeb Burton on Racing at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

"This weekend should be fun. I'm completely new to this type of racing, but luckily our No. 4 team had the chance to test at VIR earlier this month and that allowed us to get one step ahead in our planning. Since my TSM teammate Miguel Paludo has had a lot of success in road-course racing, I really relied on him to teach me the ins and outs while we were testing our trucks. Even though it will be a first for a lot of us young drivers, I think it's great that NASCAR wants our series back on this type of track. It's great preparation and I'm happy I get the opportunity to learn from some of the best this weekend."
