Jeb Burton will make his second start with Niece Motorsports in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday.
“I’m excited to get back behind the wheel of one of these Niece Motorsports Chevrolets again,” said Burton. “Martinsville is certainly a very special track to me and a place that I have a lot of experience, so I’m confident that we can turn that into a strong result.”
Burton’s debut with Niece Motorsports came earlier this season at Kentucky Speedway, behind the wheel of the No. 44 Alsco/State Water Heaters Chevrolet Silverado. In his 54th NGOTS start, Burton was able to earn his 20th Top-10 finish in the series after starting 28th and finishing ninth.
The Virginia-native is no stranger to Martinsville; growing up racing late models at the “paper clip.” In addition, Burton has four Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts and seven NGOTS starts at Martinsville.
In his seven NGOTS starts at the half-mile track, Burton has earned one pole, which came in 2013. At a track where passing is tough, and track position is paramount, Burton has qualified in the top-10 on four occasions. His best finish at the track is two third-place results, both coming in 2013.
The No. 44 Chevrolet Burton will drive at Martinsville Speedway will carry the Alsco, State Water Heaters and Puryear Tank Lines colors.
