For the second consecutive January, a sponsorship implosion suddenly has Jeb Burton scrambling for a NASCAR ride with only two weeks before the season.

A deal to keep him in a ThorSport Racing Toyota recently fell through for the Camping World Truck Series driver, who finished eighth in the 2014 points standings. The news comes exactly a year after sponsorship trouble knocked him from a ride with Turner Scott Motorsports. He landed with ThorSport a week later, and the part-time ride eventually grew into full time. His prospects seem bleaker this season. The son of 2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton and nephew of NASCAR winner/NBC Sports analyst Jeff Burton brings cachet with a well-known surname, and he has produced results, too. He won at Texas (April 2013) in the 12th start of his truck career, and he also captured seven pole positions in his rookie season.

The year 2015 represents the 67th consecutive season of competition for Kimmel Racing.

A time-honored tradition that reaches back to its inception in 1949 under the guidance of family patriarch Bill Kimmel, Sr., moves forward today with Bill Kimmel, Jr. at the helm. His son, Will Kimmel, a third-generation ARCA driver, is again set to steer the No. 69 Kimmel Racing Ford Fusion in ’15, the same number his grandfather wore in ’49. The 2015 season is still coming together for Kimmel Racing, which finished third at Daytona in 2012 with Will behind the wheel. Kimmel Racing has already tested the new ARCA Racing Series composite body at Salem and Daytona, and plans to be ready with it for the short track portion of the fast-approaching new season.

Tony Stewart, already the owner of the beloved Eldora Speedway and a World of Outlaws team that features series champion Donny Schatz and legend Steve Kinser, has acquired the All-Star Circuit of Champions from its former owner, Guy Webb.

Additionally, Stewart has reached separate terms with principal owners of the Renegade Sprint Series. As a result, the Renegade and All-Star drivers will unite under the All-Star banner in 2015 and compete in a 50-race schedule. It’s a sign that such passion still endures for Stewart despite his 2013 season-ending crash and his involvement last year in an accident that killed 20-year-old competitor Kevin Ward Jr.; a grand jury ultimately cleared Stewart of any charges from the incident.
