Harrison Burton

No. 20 DEX Imaging/Hunt Brother’s Pizza Toyota Supra News and Notes:

· Phoenix Recap: Harrison Burton continued his hot streak to start his 2020 campaign last weekend, securing his fourth consecutive top-five finish to open this season at Phoenix Raceway. After qualifying third for the 200-lap event, Burton was a mainstay inside the top 10 for most of the race, eventually crossing the finish line in the second position for Joe Gibbs Racing.

· Rare Company: Burton continues to be off to a historic start to his rookie campaign. With his second-place finish last weekend, Burton continues to add to the record books, still being the only Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender to have four-consecutive top-five finishes in as many races. In fact, this feat has only been accomplished just seven times by six drivers all-time: Carl Edwards (2009, 2010), Elliott Sadler (2012), Harrison Burton (2020), Kevin Harvick (2005), Kyle Busch (2014) and Sam Ard (1984).

· Points Update: Burton continues to lead the Xfinity Series driver championship points standings, now holding a three-point lead over Chase Briscoe following Phoenix. Burton also left Phoenix extending his Sunoco Rookie of the Year points lead, now holding a commanding 67-point lead heading into this weekend.

From the Cockpit:

Harrison Burton:

What are you looking forward to at Atlanta?

“I have some experience at Atlanta. I’ve ran the trucks there, ran really good last year in the truck. I think I was running second most of the race to Kyle (Busch). I felt like I was a 10th faster than the field and he was a 10.5 faster than me. That was a good race for us. I finished eighth or so, had a bad restart. Ran up front all day. I have some experience at Atlanta. My teammate Riley (Herbst) tested there earlier this year, which I think went really well for him. We can pick notes off him. I have a teammate Brandon Jones I can pick notes off of. He’s been in the series for five years now. A lot of experience in Atlanta between the three of us now, so I’m looking forward to the weekend and having another solid finish in our DEX Imaging/Hunt Brother’s Pizza Supra.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
