ABOUT JEB BURTON:
Growing up as the son of NASCAR legend Ward Burton, it was only natural that going fast was all Jeb Burton ever knew. Burton began his professional racing career in 2008 at 15 in what was known as the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at South Boston Speedway. Close to his hometown of Halifax, Va., Burton continued to move up in competition at South Boston Speedway to drive in the Late Model Series, where he earned Rookie of the Year honors.
Burton moved into one of NASCAR’s premier series in 2012 when he made his first start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. The following year, he competed in his first full season and earned his first win at Texas Motor Speedway, as well as seven pole awards, five top-five and 11 top-10 finishes.
Burton recorded only two starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) before making his NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) debut in 2015 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He went on to make 33 NCS starts and 109 NXS starts between 2013 and 2022, with his first Xfinity win coming in the spring race at Talladega in 2021. This year will mark Burton’s third full season in the NXS as he competes for a championship with Jordan Anderson Racing Bommarito Autosport.
Away from the racetrack, Burton enjoys hunting, fishing, and time outdoors. His love for conservation and land management led to the creation of “Crossroads with the Burtons,” an outdoor series featured on the Sportsman Channel that highlights the life of the outdoorsman and NASCAR driver.
