Jeb Burton NCWTS Preview: Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Viva Las Vegas...After a weekend off, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) will make its way to Sin City for a night of racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Jeb Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead/Honcho truck will make their debut at the 1.5-mile track this weekend for the Smith's 350 and with the momentum from their three recent top-10 finishes, the No. 4 team may just wind up in victory lane for the second time this season.
This Week's Silverado...The No. 4 Turner Scott Motorsports team will unload a familiar chassis this week at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Chassis TSM-602 brought Jeb his fifth Keystone Light Pole award at Chicagoland Speedway two weeks ago, along with two top-10 finishes in both of its track appearances.

The Smith's 350 can be seen live on Saturday, September 28 beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1 and can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.
Previous Race Recap...During his weekend off from the NCWTS, Burton made his NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) debut at Kentucky Speedway in the Kentucky 300. The 21-year-old hit the track in the No. 34 Arrowhead/Kangaroo Express Chevrolet Camaro with hopes of a top-10 finish, but things took a turn for the worst when the weekend's two practice sessions were drastically affected by rain in the area. With just 20 laps of experience in his NNS car, Burton exceeded expectations by qualifying the No. 34 Camaro in the 13th position and continued to impress as he crossed the finish line in eighth place.
Jeb Burton on Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
"I'm really looking forward to racing at Las Vegas [Motor Speedway]. After the success we had in our Nationwide debut at Kentucky last weekend, my TSM team and I are hungrier than ever for another win in our truck. We've been really good at 1.5-mile tracks this season and our truck for Vegas is nothing short of awesome. I think the No. 4 team will be one to watch for this weekend. We're back in the game and ready for victory lane."
