First Stage Recap:
  • When the green flag dropped, Burton started his No. 51 DEX Imaging Toyota Tundra from the 10th position

  • Burton was scored 17th when the stage ended
Second Stage Recap:
  • Burton started the second stage 10th but quickly raced his way to seventh
  • The 16-year-old continued to learn the track and make changes to his Toyota Tundra and ended the stage in the seventh position
Third Stage Recap:
  • After staying out on the track when the Second Stage ended, the No. 51 Tundra started the last stage of the 200-lap race from the third position
  • Burton and the No. 51 race team made a green-flag pit stop on Lap 156, but after an untimely caution the rookie finished the race 13th and two laps down
