2014 Eldora: Jeb Burton NASCAR Truck Race Preview

Much like the "Burton" name, the tenth race on the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule is arguably one of the most historic stops for NASCAR's top-three touring divisions. In 2013, the series returned to its roots for the first time since Richard Petty, one of 77 NASCAR drivers to win on dirt, won at N.C. Speedway in Raleigh in 1970. On Wednesday night, Jeb Burton and his NCWTS competitors will return to Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio for the lone dirt race on the 2014 schedule - the 2nd Annual 1-800-CarCash Mudsummer Classic.

Second-generation driver Burton has a history on dirt; racing go-karts and motocross in Virginia and North Carolina. Therefore his impressive debut last season at Eldora was no surprise to the 21-year-old driver. In the inaugural event at the half-mile clay oval, Burton started first in the fifth and final qualifying heat race, led all eight laps and placed his tough truck on the third row of the starting grid for the main event. Despite receiving damage towards the end of the race, Burton walked away with a top-20 finish.

As one of the most anticipated races of the season, Burton hopes to write his own chapter in the NASCAR history books and put the Burton name back in victory lane.

Sounding off - Jeb Burton:
"Eldora has got to be one of the wildest, craziest things I've ever done. It's a tough little race track, but we had a decent run there last year - won our heat race, ran in the top-12 until I got into the wall, but managed a top-20 finish. Track position is key and just surviving will help us manage a solid run. This race brings a lot of hype, a special format and it's become a pretty cool stop on our schedule. It's a historic event that I'm happy to be a part of."
