Previous Race Recap...What appeared to be an impressive day for Burton turned into a disappointing night when his No. 4 Arrowhead Chevrolet ran out of fuel with only six laps remaining in the WinStar World Casino 350 at Texas Motor Speedway. Receiving his seventh Keystone Light pole award of the season, Burton and his TSM team felt their brand-new truck had a real shot at returning to the Texas-sized victory lane for a second time this year. However, a combination of handling and fuel issues resulted in a 26th-place finish at the No Limits track, taking Burton to fifth in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings.
Jeb Burton on Racing at Phoenix International Raceway:
"This weekend will be interesting at Phoenix. Going into the final two races fighting for a top-5 position, well, this isn't the predicament we saw ourselves in. We're taking a good truck that's been successful this season, so I'm hoping the familiarity and confidence I have in the truck will help me tackle this track as a rookie. I know that this team isn't going down without a fight, so like every weekend, our game face is on and we're ready to give it another shot."
