Jeb Burton NCWTS Preview: Chicagoland Speedway

Friday Night Lights...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) heads to the Windy City to race under the lights at Chicagoland Speedway for the EnjoyIllinois.com 225. Hitting unfamiliar grounds once again, Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team will make their debut at the 1.5-mile oval track on Friday night following a top-10 finish at Iowa Speedway.

Burton ranked fourth fastest in the weekend's only practice session and qualified eighth for the Fan Appreciation 200. Despite a spin with just 10 laps remaining, the No. 4 Chevy managed to collect only minimal damage. After two green/white/checkered flag attempts, Burton finished in eighth place and remains fourth in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings.

 

Jeb Burton on Racing at Chicagoland Speedway

"We needed that top-10 finish at Iowa. Heading to Chicago, my team and I couldn't be more prepared to do it again. We had a good truck in Kentucky and we're taking it to Chicago hoping for similar results. I've been studying film a lot and even though we've never raced at this track, I feel like we'll be a real contender come Friday night. There's no time to slow down now."
