2013 Phoenix: Jeff Burton NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview


This Week's No. 31 Cheerios Chevrolet SS ... Jeff Burton will race chassis No. 392 this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. This No. 31 Chevrolet was utilized three times during the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season at Kentucky Speedway in June and both Dover International Speedway races in June and September.

Burton in the Desert ... Burton has 27 starts at PIR with two wins (2000 and 2001), seven top-five and 13 top-10 finishes. He has also led 222 laps at the one-mile facility.

Black and Yellow ... The iconic General Mills brand Cheerios returns to the track this weekend as the primary sponsor on Burton's No. 31 Chevrolet SS. America's No.1 cereal franchise will bring its fan-favorite yellow and black paint scheme to these additional races in 2013: Bristol Motor Speedway (March 17), Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 26), Dover International Speedway (June 2), Michigan International Speedway (August 18) and New Hampshire Motor Speedway (September 22). General Mills has roots as a NASCAR sponsor for more than 15 years and began its partnership with RCR in 2008 with Cheerios brand as the primary sponsor of the No. 33 Sprint Cup Series team. The program moved to the No. 31 team as a co-primary sponsor for the 2012 Sprint Cup Series season.

Race Rewind 2012 ... After running in the top 15 for 254 of the first 291 laps in last year's Sprint Cup Series race at PIR, Burton's No. 31 Wheaties Chevrolet suffered engine problems and was forced to retire early relegating the RCR driver to a 33rd-place finish.

JEFF BURTON QUOTE:
Have drivers adjusted to the repave changes at Phoenix International Raceway?

"I think all drivers have become accustomed to it. It is different now because when you get there and unload, the track has no grip and you have to pace yourself in practice. The track gets better throughout the weekend and it changes all weekend long. A lot of the time, the guys who don't look so good in practice are the ones who win the race because the track changes so much. Understanding the way it is going to change is going to be most important. It's hard to know how it is going to change."
