HARRISON BURTON, KYLE BUSCH MOTORSPORTS TEST AT CANADIAN TIRE MOTORSPORT PARK
In the first on-track activity of 2018 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP), NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) team Kyle Busch Motorsports tested today at the track. Driver Harrison Burton was behind the wheel of the team’s Toyota Tundra.
Seventeen-year-old Burton, of Huntersville, N.C., is the son of former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Jeff Burton and is the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion. Burton returns to Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2018 with an expanded NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule which will see him run nine races.
Harrison finished eighth at Martinsville in March and will run at Dover next week. Since he doesn’t turn 18 until October, he’s unable to run any of the 1.5-mile or larger tracks until then, so he’ll run Texas and Homestead at the end of the season too.
“I’m still on a part-time schedule in the trucks until I turn 18 in October, so I’ve been jumping around different series to be in the races that I can be,” said Burton. “I’ve got time and I’m taking that time and learning as much as I can. It’s a big learning curve, but I’m ready for it.
“One of my races at KBM this season will be at CTMP in August, so we came up here to test to help me gain some road course experience. I’m soaking in as much as I can during this test, so I can be more competitive when we come back for the race.”
Burton and the talented drivers of the NCWTS will race at CTMP August 24–26 as part of the Chevrolet Silverado 250 weekend. For tickets and more information, click "Buy Tickets" at the top or bottom of this page!
