Huntersville, NC – Harrison Burton, the teenage son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup driver and current NBC Sports NASCAR analyst Jeff Burton, will make his debut this weekend in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series driving the No. 12 DEX Imaging Toyota for Jeff Burton Autosports (JBA).
Burton has already made a name for himself as one of the youngest drivers to run late models. The three time USAC Quarter Midget National Champion continues to make history being one of the youngest drivers to accomplish the following: pole position qualifying run in his second Late Model race (age 11), two PASS Pro-Late Model wins (age 12), two World Series of Asphalt Pro-Late Model wins (age 13), and three Super Late Model wins (age 14).
Burton’s current Super Late Model primary sponsor, DEX Imaging, a privately held document-imaging dealer, will also be the primary sponsor of the No. 12 K&N Series Toyota this weekend at All-American Speedway. They will continue their long-standing partnership with JBA in both the Super Late Model and K&N Series throughout the remainder of the 2015 season and in 2016.
“I am excited to have DEX on board as we break into the K&N Series,” Burton said. “I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish so far. They have been such an incredible supporter of our team and I’m looking forward to taking this next step together.”
Chris Wimmer will return as crew chief of the Super Late Model team, while Rich Lushes will come on as crew chief for Burton’s K&N races.
“I am honored to join Jeff Burton Autosports and have the opportunity to work with this successful team that Jeff has assembled,” said Lushes. “I have had the chance to watch Harrison grow as a race car driver and I’m extremely impressed with his talent. I look forward to building a great relationship with him and am certain this team will be contending for wins soon.”
Burton’s complete 2016 schedule is expected to be released later this year.
