Past Fantasy Outlooks
Burton will make at least five starts in the strong No. 8 Chevy of JR Motorsports. This team is a multi-driver operation, however, with a lot of upside due to the team's strength, personnel and good equipment. Burton made only three Xfinity Series starts last season with a pair of Top-15 finishes in those efforts for Richard Childress Racing.
Burton's 2018 plans have not been announced.
Burton signed with Richard Petty Motorsports in February 2016 to drive the No. 43 Ford in the Xfinity Series.
The 20-year-old son of Sprint Cup Series driver Ward Burton will get his first full taste of NASCAR action in the truck series. Burton will follow his five-start effort of 2012 with a full 22-race slate in 2013. The up-and-coming driver earned one Top-10 finish in those five starts, so talent is clearly there. However, lots of lessons will be learned this season. Burton will pilot the No. 4 Turner Motorsports truck, so good equipment and good team support will be there. Mike Hillman Jr. will do the honors at crew chief and make Burton’s quest for Rookie of the Year an easier task.
