Burton notched his last Sprint Cup Series victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway in October 2008. Throughout the years, he has amassed three wins, eight top-five and 15 top-10 finishes at the track, leading 435 laps.

No Stranger to Victory Lane ... Burton has made six previous visits to Charlotte Motor Speedway's Victory Lane across Sprint Cup and NASCAR Nationwide Series competition. He owns two Coca-Cola 600 race trophies from wins in 1999 and 2001, the 2008 Charlotte 500 race trophy, hardware from three Nationwide Series victories (2000, 2002 and 2007) and one Nationwide Series pole award (2001).

Race Rewind ... A multi-car accident on a lap-16 restart collected Burton's No. 31 Caterpillar Chevrolet relegating him to a 28th-place finish under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

What are your thoughts on going back to Charlotte Motor Speedway after a strong run in May?
"When we raced at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May, it started a run of races where we ran better than the year before. That was the start of the No. 31 team understanding what it takes to run well. We're going back to Charlotte with more confidence than ever. The strong runs are there, just not consistent finishes. We've changed so much with our 1.5-mile program since the first Charlotte races that I am excited to see what we have to offer. These Gen-6 cars have also evolved a lot since May which was expected in the beginning."
