Jeb Burton failed to qualify at Texas for the first time all season in a race with standard procedures. (He also failed to advance from the Daytona 500 heat races.)
He made the show at Martinsville on time, so he should be able to rebound on the short track of Bristol. In the races he made, he has been running at the checkers each time and could be a solid value for the Food City 500. Apr 14 - 9:44 PM

Jeb Burton is coming off his career-best finish of 29th at Martinsville last week and hopes he can continuum to post top-30 results as the NASCAR Sprint Cup series heads to Texas.

A more likely outcome is a result in the mid- to high-30s. Burton finished 35th at Atlanta and was 40th at Vegas in his two 1.5-mile races. He finished 39th on the two-mile Auto Club Speedway to add another result in that same range.
Apr 7 - 9:40 PM

Jeb Burton has been running at the end of every race he started this season. He failed to make the show at Daytona and sustained crash damage at Vegas, but every other race has been incident free.

Burton was five laps off the pace at Martinsville in the STP 500 en route to a 29th-place finish, which gave him a lot of track time. That is the only way rookies can improve.

Jeb Burton has made six starts in the Camping World Truck Series at Martinsville and has had some success on that track. He won the pole in spring 2013 and finished third. When he returned in the fall, he swept the top five by finishing third again.

Skills are not immediately transferable from trucks to cars, but Burton at least has a comfort level that drivers who spent the majority of their formative races in the XFINITY series lack.

Jeb Burton has started three races this season and he improved over his qualification attempt each time. His greatest advance in race trim came at Phoenix when he rolled off the grid 41st and finished 34th.

The only way for rookies to improve is to get seat time and that is what Burton is doing. He has been running at the end of every race he started, although he is still seeking his first lead lap finish.
Mar 18 - 10:39 AM

Jeb Burton will continue to gain seat time in the No. 26 BK Racing entry. He will make his fourth attempt of the season at Phoenix this weekend.

Burton failed to advance from the qualification races at Daytona and finished 35th at Atlanta. Last week might have been in the mid-30s as well if not for contact from Jeff Gordon, so he is still seeking his first top-30. It will take a little while to get comfortable at this level of competition.
Mar 11 - 3:31 PM

Last week Jeb Burton ran 316 of the 325 laps that make up the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500. He finished only 35th in his debut, but he gained valuable track time.

Burton has run strong enough in the XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series to make him of interest to fantasy players, but it is going to take some time before he is a starter in the Cup series.
Mar 5 - 11:20 AM

Jeb Burton is still looking to make his first Cup start, but that does not mean he lacks experience on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. So far in his career, he has made 16 Camping World Truck Series and two XFINITY starts on this track type.

Burton’s last three results in the Truck series last year ended with a fifth at Chicagoland, an eighth at Las Vegas, and a second at Texas. He also has a victory at Texas in spring 2013, and it was this success that undoubtedly got him noticed for the No. 26 ride. The competition level increases exponentially at the Cup level, but he should be able to make the show and some noise at Atlanta.

For Jeb Burton, the Daytona 500 will be a trial by fire of sorts. It is his inaugural Cup start after running only five previous races on restrictor-plate, superspeedways in other series.

Burton finished fifth in his first Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona in 2013 and has one other top-10 in four Truck plate starts. He finished 29th with crash damage in last year’s ARCA Lucas Oil 200. Not many rookies get to count Daytona as their first track and fantasy owners should be prepared for him to be a little conservative.

Less than two weeks after he was released from his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ride by ThorSport Racing, Jeb Burton confirmed to Sunday afternoon that he has accepted an offer to drive the No. 26 Toyota Camry for BK Racing in the Sprint Cup Series.

An announcement will be made Monday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in downtown Charlotte, N.C. Instead of entering his second season with ThorSport Racing, Burton was released from his Truck ride on Jan. 28 when an agreement could not be reached on a new sponsorship deal for this season. The first Sprint Cup practice session Burton will participate is this Saturday. Jeb Burton is the son of 2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton and nephew of former driver and now NBC NASCAR analyst Jeff Burton.

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.

Jeb Burton finishes 13th in Friday night's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Jeb Burton is looking to finish his first full-time season with ThorSport Racing on a high note in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season finale at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway (HMS) on Friday.

Burton posted a third-place finish in his only NCWTS start at HMS last year, and brings momentum from a second-place finish two weeks ago at Texas Motor Speedway into the 2014 finale. Burton hopes to combine his recent momentum on intermediate tracks with the strength of his third-place result at HMS in 2013 to break into victory lane in south Florida.-ThorSport Racing

Jeb Burton finishes 25th in Friday night's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.

He started the No. 13 Estes/Carolina Nut Company Toyota Tundra 13th in the lineup for the Lucas Oil 150. He was involved in a multi-truck wreck early in the race and, after repairs, he completed 102 of the 126 laps run. He is currently ninth in the 2014 NCWTS point standings after the event.

Jeb Burton heads to Phoenix International Raceway riding a wave of momentum after a season-best second-place run at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth last weekend.

The solid effort was the sophomore driver's second top-five finish of the season and allowed the Halifax, Va. native to gain one position in the NCWTS driver point standings. The ThorSport Racing driver is now eighth in points, knocking on the door of seventh - only seven points back. Burton hopes to improve on his 2013 result of 11th at PIR in Friday night's Lucas Oil 150 - a move that can leave him "riding" his way up the standings and finishing out the 2014 season on top.-ThorSport Racing
