Burton Family Feature: Tune in to ‘NCWTS Setup’ on SPEED at 1:00 p.m. EDT to catch up with the entire Burton family for a sit-down interview at their home in Halifax, Virginia. Rockingham Speedway is a favorite track of the Burton clan, as father Ward Burton captured his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory in the 1995 AC Delco 400 at the famed North Carolina track. A year ago, Jeb Burton brought home an 11th-place finish in his first and only start at the one-mile oval.
Last Race Recap: Less than a week ago Burton opened eyes and turned heads at Martinsville Speedway. After dominating the weekend’s only NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) practice session, the 20-year-old went on to claim his first career pole award, as well as the track qualifying record. After leading 154 laps and earning valuable bonus points, Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team brought home a third-place finish, a career best for the Rookie of the Year contender.
Eyes in the Cockpit: Be closer to the action with the No. 4 Arrowhead team during the SPEED broadcast as their Chevy Silverado is equipped with an on-board camera for 200 laps around Rockingham Speedway.
This Week’s Silverado: Under the direction of veteran crew chief Mike Hillman Jr., the No. 4 team will utilize chassis TSM-211 this weekend at Rockingham Speedway. This truck is a powerhouse for Turner Scott Motorsports, having made laps in 2012 at Martinsville Speedway, Iowa Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway.
Say Hello: Burton will be joining the rest of the NCWTS field for an autograph session outside the main ticket office on Saturday morning starting at 10:15 a.m. EDT.

Jeb Burton on his Second Start at Rockingham Speedway: “Last weekend was a dream come true for me. Even though I wish I went home with the win, I’m focused on the bigger picture and it was a great points race for my entire team. My dad has a few trophies from Rockingham and I would love to add to that collection. My team and I are equally determined to make this dream a reality.”
