Now in its fifth year, our sponsorship of Harrison Burton continues to develop as his career ramps up. The young driver, son of NASCAR legend Jeff Burton, clinched several important victories leading up joining the H Scott Motorsports racing team and participation in the K&N Series. Driving in the #12 DEX Imaging Camry, Harrison continues to impress with his maturity, sportsmanship and skill, and earn victories wherever he races.
While currently competing for the Rookie of the Year title in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Harrison became a three-time USAC Quarter Midget national champion and then moved into Late Models, where at the age of 11 he captured his first pole in the Limited Late Model division at Ace Speedway in Elon, N.C. At the age of 12, he graduated to Pro-Late Models and won two races at Dillon (S.C.) Motor Speedway.
At the age of 14, the talented teenager became the youngest driver to win a NASCAR Whelen Super Late Model event when he visited victory lane twice during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna (Fla.) last February and in May he picked up his first Southern Super Series win at Mobile (Ala.) International Speedway. In October 2015, at the age of 15 years and eight days, Burton became the youngest driver to compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West when he raced in the series stop at All American Speedway in Roseville, Calif.
In addition to his full-time schedule in the K&N Pro Series East this season, Burton will compete in numerous Super Late Model events around the country with his family-operated team. The 15-year-old driver returned to the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna this year and finished second in the Super Late Model point standings after collecting two wins and finishing inside the top three four times across the six-race schedule. He also posted a runner-up finish in January at 2016 SpeedFest at Crisp Motorsports Park in Cordele, Ga., against a field that included KBM owner-driver Kyle Busch and KBM Truck Series driver William Byron.
We’re proud to continue our sponsorship into 2017 as Harrison Burton develops his career into new, challenging areas. Stay tuned for more information on our social media channels, and Go Harrison!
