Jeb Burton is starting to get a little more interesting on short, flat tracks. The Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway will be his eighth attempt on this track type and his most recent effort ended in a 27th at Martinsville Speedway.

Burton has not yet finished on the lead lap on this track type and that will not happen at Phoenix either. He has been running at the end of every race, however, which is allowing him to gain a lot of experience.

Jeb Burton, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Rookie of the Year candidate, will climb behind the wheel of the JR Motorsports (JRM) No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Texas Motor Speedway on Nov. 6.

A previous NCWTS winner at Texas in 2013, Burton will make his JRM debut and first series start since completing his second full season in 2014. In 49 career NCWTS starts, the 23-year-old’s resume boasts one win, seven top-five and 19 top-10 efforts, with seven poles.

Jeb Burton’s failure to qualify last week at Talladega was the first time in eight weeks that he was not in a Sprint Cup race. His previous seven starts came as the result of an owner’s provisional.

In order to improve overall, Burton is going to need to start making the show on speed, but even with provisional starts he is gaining a lot of experience. Only 43 cars are entered this week, so Burton will definitely be in the show and his last attempt on a short, flat track came at New Hampshire this September where he finished 33rd after starting 41st—gaining eight place-differential points in the process.

If Jeb Burton qualifies for the 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, it will be his second restrictor-plate, superspeedway race. He started 40th this July in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway and finished 36th.

In two previous attempts he failed to advance into the Daytona 500 after finishing poorly in his qualification race and he failed to qualify at Talladega this May by a fairly wide margin. His prognosis is unknown and questionable, which leaves fantasy owners searching for a different dark horse.

Jeb Burton may face his toughest challenge in the NASCAR Cup series as he attempts to qualify for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. To comfortably make the field, he needs to qualify among the top 36, but he was only 44th in the first practice session.

The 37th through 46th positions on the morning practice charts had several drivers ahead of him in points including Matt DiBenedetto, Michael Annett, Justin Allgaier, and Cole Whitt. That increases the importance of qualifying well and he is one of the drivers most in jeopardy of going home on Saturday.

Three drivers failed to find enough speed to make Saturday night’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. They were Travis Kvapil, Jeb Burton, and Reed Sorenson.

Make certain that these drivers are not on your lineup. Some attractive dark horses who did make the show are Brett Moffitt and Josh Wise in the No. 32 car this week.

Jeb Burton spun off turn three at Pocono in the first few minutes of final practice for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono. His car was destroyed and he will have to go to a backup.

Burton was already starting near the back of the pack with a 38th-place qualification effort, so this will not impact his handicap greatly. The rookie is taking some time to get up to speed and has not been a great value this season.

Jeb Burton has qualified for four flat track races this year and he finished better than he started in each race. His greatest improvement on this track type has been seven positions—most recently at Pocono Raceway in June.

Burton’s other seven-race improvement is even more meaningful. He started 41st at Phoenix International Raceway and finished 34th on New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s closest comparative.

With a larger than normal entry list of 46 cars this week, simply making the race could be a challenge for Jeb Burton at Kentucky Speedway. He has failed to qualify for three of five races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year.

Burton failed to qualify at Texas Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway, but he made the Kansas Speedway show on time. Once in the race, he should be evaluated only since his career-best on this track type was a 35th at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March.
Jul 9 - 9:13 AM

Jeb Burton failed to qualify at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coke 600, but that seems to have galvanized the team. He made the next show at Dover International Speedway on time before finishing 30th; last week he took a provisional to start 40th, but advanced to 33rd at the end.

With a relatively light field of 44 cars, Burton should be able to make the show and gain some seat time. If he practices in the 30s this week, he could be a good gamble at his modest cap level.
Jun 11 - 9:11 PM

Jeb Burton needs track time and he should get plenty at Pocono Raceway. Only 43 cars are entered the week, which means no one will go home from the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 and the No. 26 does not need to worry about qualification.

Burton failed to qualify in four of the last seven races, but he made the show last week at Dover and finished fairly well considering his experience level. He started 35th and crossed under the checkers 30th in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks. This will be his first Pocono attempt.
Jun 3 - 8:20 AM

Jeb Burton has been running at the end of a Cup race only once in his last six attempts. That came at Richmond International Raceway in April when he finished 38th in teammate JJ Yeley’s car.

Burton showed a lot of promise in the opening races with one top-30 and three other results inside the 30s in five starts. He was forced to take a provisional to start three times, however, and needs to improve his qualification efforts.

Jeb Burton has had a difficult time this year on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He attempted to qualify for all four races with a best of 35th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Burton needed a provisional to start that race and was forced to use the same avenue to make the Las Vegas Motor Speedway race. He failed to qualify at Texas Motor Speedway, and finally made the show on time last week at Kansas Speedway. Unfortunately, he broke a rear gear and finished 42nd in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400.
May 21 - 12:38 PM

Jeb Burton had to rely on provisionals to make his first two starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. He rolled off the grid 40th at Atlanta and 41st at Vegas en route to 35th- and 40th-place results respectively.

In those two races, Burton failed to finish on the same lap as the leaders, but he completed 96 percent of the circuits and was running at the end of each. The only way a driver can improve is to log track time.
