     As the next wave of young guns..gets set to try and take NASCAR by storm, veteran Jeff Burton forges ahead.  The 21-time Cup race winner is about to exit Richard Childress racing..but not the Cup Series. Burton says his plans at the Cup level are almost finalized, and he will soon be able to announce them. In the meantime- he's pretty clear on what it takes to make it to the top..and keep on racing. 

    Burton says if you are entering into a racing career just for the money and fame, it won't work out. He talked about it needing to be a passion, or your career won't be what you want it to be.

     The 46-year-old grew up in nearby South Boston, Virginia, and understands the history--and tradition..of Martinsville.  Having spent his formative years in the area he understands what NASCAR racing at Martinsville twice a year means to the area. Burton says after the area lost tobacco, and then later textiles, the economy was devastated. He says it would be a mistake for NASCAR to ever leave Martinsville, because if you don't respect your past you want have a good future.
