Past Fantasy Outlooks
Burton had a wildly successful season with Kaulig Racing last year in the No. 10 Chevrolet. He would collect career-best marks of one win and 16 Top-10 finishes. However, things would not work out for Burton to stay in that ride for 2022 as Landon Cassill would displace him there. The young driver lands squarely on his feet at the growing Our Motorsports stable. Burton will pilot the team's new car for the upcoming season, the No. 27 Chevrolet. He's being paired with long-time crew chief Chad Walter, and the two will look to form chemistry right away. Now with 76 Xfinity Series starts under his belt, Burton is becoming a seasoned driver. There will be some bumps in the road ahead as they get this new team off the ground, but Burton is capable of competitive racing.
With the promotion of Ross Chastain to the Cup Series, Burton is poised to take over the Kaulig Racing No. 10 Chevrolet. This will be his first full season of action in this division of NASCAR, but Burton is far from a rookie. He has 43-combined starts in the Xfinity Series spread over seven seasons. Last season's 11-race campaign with JR Motorsports was his most successful season to-date. Burton racked up three Top-5 and six Top-10 finishes in those 11 starts. The short tracks and superspeedways are definitely Burton's strength. At 28-years-old, he's more seasoned than many of the young drivers in the Xfinity Series. Burton has seen and experienced a lot in his time. Now with a strong race team and good resources, Burton has the chance to break into the win column for the first time and pile up career-best stats.
JRM has signed Daniel Hemric to pilot the team's car for most of the schedule, a total of 21 starts. Youngster Burton will take the wheel for 11 starts, and Earnhardt Jr. will get one start early in the season at Homestead. While there are three drivers for this team, it will mostly be an effort for Hemric. He comes over from the Cup Series last year in the RCR No. 8 Chevrolet. When Hemric last raced in the Xfinity Series he stacked up 16 Top-5 and 23 Top-10 finishes for old boss Richard Childress in 2018. The 28-year-old driver now has well over 100 combined starts in NASCAR's lower divisions. That experience will show in the No. 8 JRM Chevrolet Camaro.
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.
