Jeff Burton qualified for his second start of the season and will start 30th on Sunday for Michael Waltrip Racing. Burton finished 17th at Las Vegas in March.

No driver has more victories at New Hampshire than Burton, who posted all four of his wins in his first 12 Cup starts at NHMS. Although he could not say definitively, Burton 47, said “it’s a good chance” that this will be his final Sprint Cup race.

Morgan Shepherd, 72 years young, also qualified for his second race this season, driving Joe Falk’s Thunder Coal Chevrolet. Shepherd also raced at Phoenix this year.
