Jeb Burton on his first start at Daytona International Speedway: “It’s hard to put the way I’m feeling about my first start at Daytona International Speedway into words. It’s a very meaningful place to my entire family and I feel blessed to have this opportunity. Watching my dad win at Daytona was one of the best memories from my childhood, so to be able to possibly recreate that is a dream come true. I’m also grateful to be running for a championship-winning organization. My No. 4 Arrowhead team is hardworking and I know this is going to be a great season for us all.”
