Joe Gibbs Racing’s Harrison Burton broke another record last weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He became the first Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender to finish inside the top-10 in the first 10 races of the Xfinity Series season. His finish at Homestead broke the previous rookie record of nine consecutive races to start the season with top-10 finishes by Carl Edwards in 2005.
Overall, the driver of the No. 20 Toyota, has dominated the rookie standings!
This weekend will be Burton’s series track debut at Talladega Superspeedway. Burton made one start at Talladega in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2019 and finished 11th after starting from third.
Burton is currently sitting in third in the series points standings, behind leader Noah Gragson and second-place Chase Briscoe.
Burton also joins them on the list of multi-race winners this season in the Xfinity Series. Combined, Burton, Gragson and Briscoe make up seven wins in the 10 races run so far.
Plus, don’t forget Burton kicked the season off with a runner-up finish at Daytona; right behind Gragson!
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
