Jeb Burton, driver of the No. 13 Estes Express Toyota Tundra, made his second start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) in Saturday night’s Rhino Linings 350. Starting seventh, Burton ran as high as second and as low as 17th, but maintained a position inside the top-15 for the first half of the 146-lap event, battling a Toyota Tundra that was “plowing tight” in the opening laps. Crew chief Jeriod Prince brought the ThorSport Racing driver to pit road for scheduled stops at laps 32, 57 and 109, respectively, for four tires and fuel. The Estes driver broke into the top-10 with 25 laps remaining and never looked back. The sophomore driver crossed the stripe in the eighth position behind race winner, Erik Jones. The solid run marked Burton’s track best finish in two starts and his sixth top-10 finish of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.

Quote – Jeb Burton:
“We were just really tight the whole race, but the guys worked really hard, never gave up and we were able to salvage a pretty decent night. This team has made tremendous gains all year and we are right there to have a decent year in points. We just need to keep doing what we’re doing, improving, and making gains and we’ll get there.”
