2014 Eldora: Jeb Burton NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Start to finish, Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, OH provided Jeb Burton and the No. 13 Estes Express team with one of its most complete efforts of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season. Following a win in his heat race, Burton lined-up in the second-position, a season-best start, for the main 150-lap feature. Divided into three segments, Burton showed speed early in NASCAR's only dirt race, running inside the top-three throughout the first 60-lap segment, even leading his first laps of the season, but settled for a position inside the top-five for the final two segments. Chasing a changing track and a loose Toyota Tundra in the final 40 laps, Burton tagged the wall late in the race and settled for a seventh-place finish in the 1-800-CarCash Mudsummer Classic, his third top-10 finish of the 2014 NCWTS season.

Quote - Jeb Burton:
"We had a great run today, something we haven't done for a while. It was a good point's night for our Estes Express Toyota Tundra, so hopefully we can keep gaining points every week and get back inside the top-10 where we deserve to be. We came here for a good finish, and it's something we can take to Pocono and build on."
