Jeb Burton heads to Texas for his fifth start this season
behind the wheel of the No. 8 Chevrolet for JR
• In four previous NXS starts at the 1.5-mile oval, Burton has
scored one top five and two top 10s with a best finish of
fifth coming in this event last season. Both of Burton’s top10 results at Texas have come while driving for JRM.
• Texas is the site of Burton’s first career victory in the Truck
Series, coming in June of 2013. Burton started third and
led 25 laps en route to the victory.
• This will be the first primary race of 2020 for State Water
“Texas is a definitely a special place for me and my career
having won my first truck race here. It’s a track that I’ve
always enjoyed coming to and have always felt really
confident at. We had some really good runs here last year
and I have no doubt that we can unload with that same
speed on Saturday with our State Water Heaters Chevrolet.
Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all of the guys on this JR
Motorsports team have been working really hard and I
can’t wait to get to the track and see what we can do.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
