Jeb Burton to Pilot Biagi-DenBeste Car at Charlotte

The event will be Burton's second in a NASCAR Nationwide Series car and his first in 2014. He will drive the No. 98 Kendall-Jackson AVANTĀ® Ford in a first-time partnership between Biagi-DenBeste and the California winery.

The 21-year-old driver is the son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Ward Burton and nephew of Sprint Cup driver Jeff Burton. Still young in his career, Burton has already made his own name for himself, finishing fifth in the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings while capturing his first NASCAR win and seven pole positions over the course of the season. He has one previous Nationwide Series start, an eighth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway last September.

"I'm thankful to Fred, Bill, Lori and everybody for the opportunity to come drive the No. 98 car," said Burton. "I think the racing in the Nationwide Series is really good right now, and I'm excited to be a part of it. I'm also looking forward to working with Kendall-Jackson, bringing a new sponsor into the sport and having a good run for them."

"We're thrilled to have both Jeb Burton and Kendall-Jackson AVANT with us for the first time," said team co-owner Fred Biagi. "Jeb has impressed at every level he's raced, and we're excited to put that talent behind the wheel of our Ford Mustang. And with a name like Kendall-Jackson on the car, that car is going to turn some heads."

"As part of the launch for our newest line of wines, Kendall-Jackson AVANT, we're excited to partner with Jeb Burton for this race," said John Maxwell, Vice President of Marketing, Kendall-Jackson. "NASCAR is a beloved sport for many Americans and we're looking forward to building awareness with NASCAR racing fans and followers."

The History 300 will air live on ABC on Saturday, May 24, at 2:45 p.m. ET.
