South Boston Speedway News
Jeb Burton Returning to His Roots at South Boston Speedway Saturday Night
Jun 16, 2017 - updated Jun 16th, 2017 4:54am

--

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (June 15, 2017) – Jeb Burton has been busy the past year, but just not doing what he loves to do most.

The 25-year-old South Boston racer has spent a good portion of his time putting together his own internet-based outdoor show: Crossroads: Outdoors with the Burtons. It’s a very well-done, engaging lifestyle show that’s a mix of his outdoors and racing adventures.

He would like to be spending more time racing than filming, though.

This Saturday night it will be all about racing for Burton as he returns to his racing roots for the Halifax Insurance presents Whelen NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s at South Boston Speedway.

“H.C. Sellers and I started a Late Model team last year … Sellers-Burton Racing. We own the car together,” said Burton. “The goal is to rent it some and use it for developmental drivers. We decided to get it together for this weekend. I’m looking forward to being back and getting a win.”

It’s been a while since Burton raced on his home track. His racing for the past five or six years has taken him from coast-to-coast in NASCAR’s top three series. He won a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway in 2013 and ran that full series again in 2014. He made 28 starts in what is now the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2015. A year ago, he ran in about half of the Xfinity Series events and has made two Xfinity starts this year with about another half-dozen planned.

After making the jump to the Cup series in 2015 following two solid truck seasons when he finished fifth and eighth in the points, his career stalled, mostly because of a lack of funding.

“It’s been frustrating. A lot of my buddies are out there running every week and I know I can do it,” said Burton, the son of 2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton. “It’s been tough. I’ve got to get back on the radar. We’re working on some good things for next year.”

Now he’s concentrating on a strong run at South Boston Saturday night. He tested his Late Model twice in the past few days working to get it dialed in for Saturday.

“We tested last week. We were fast, but it wasn’t handling the way it needed to,” said Burton, who was back at the track Wednesday for another test. “One fast lap won’t cut it at South Boston. We’ve got to get the balance better.”

Burton, who is sponsored by Felton Brothers Concrete, H&M Logging, Kejaeh Enterprises, US Cellular and Fry, Jordan and Wilson Insurance, said he is pumped about Saturday night’s race.

“The main thing is to come over here and have fun, get back to something that I started with, get back in my zone.”

Saturday’s action includes twin 75-lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division, twin 25-lap Limited Sportsman Division races, a 30-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and a 15-lap race for the Budweiser Hornets Division.

In honor of Father’s Day, all dads will be admitted for $5. Other adult admission is $10 and $5 for youth ages 7-12. Kids ages six and under are admitted free with a paid adult.
