Former Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton is getting back behind the wheel in NASCAR. He's bringing his son along, too. Burton signed with Hillman Racing and will drive in next month's season opening Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway. Hillman also agreed to start a driver development program for Burton's 19-year-old son, Jeb. Jeb Burton has been racing in NASCAR's Whelen All-American Series and eventually will drive Hillman's No. 27 Chevrolet in the Truck Series. Ward Burton last competed in a Sprint Cup race in 2007. He has made 375 starts at NASCAR's top level, earning five wins and 24 top-five finishes. Burton also has four Nationwide Series victories in 161 starts. Driver details for the rest of the season will be announced later.
