Jeb Burton will return to NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Martinsville (Va.) on Oct. 28 as a result of a one-race deal with Young’s Motorsports. He’ll drive a No. 20 Chevrolet, a second entry for the team.

“I’m really thankful for this opportunity to drive for Young’s Motorsports at Martinsville,” Burton said. “It’s going to be great to get back into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and have an opportunity to come out of the box and compete for a strong finish. The Young’s Motorsports team has always flourished with speed at Martinsville, and I’m hoping that, with me behind the wheel and Chad (Kendrick, crew chief) calling the shots and our ECR engine, we’ll have a chance to put ourselves in the hunt for a top-five finish. It’s a home game for me and short track racing, so I’m very excited. I love racing at Martinsville, and I felt like I should have already won there. I really want that clock. We’re going to do what we can to bring it home.”

The Virginia native last raced in the Truck Series in 2015, running one race that season at Texas Motor Speedway near Fort Worth. He raced full-time in the series in 2013 and 2014, and in all, he has 50 races of Truck Series experience, resulting in a win, seven top-fives and 19 top-10 finishes.

Burton has run six NASCAR Xfinity Series races this year, most recently at Bristol (Ten.) Motor Speedway in August.
“Jeb is a tremendous race car driver,” Young’s Motorsports owner and primary driver Tyler Young said. “He isn’t afraid to go fast and put himself in a position to make some breathtaking moves that pay off in a big way. We’ve been blessed to have a good truck every time we go to Martinsville, and I feel like with Jeb’s guidance and breakdown of the track, we have the potential to do a lot of good things in a few weeks. I’m excited and can’t wait to get to Martinsville.”
