   The Burton name is synonymous with racing excellence in Southwest Virginia--and it's recognized  throughout the sport of NASCAR. And if you've been watching the truck races, you already realize that the next generation has arrived. Jeb Burton is the son of Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton and nephew to Jeff.  He explains that he uses dad on race weekend to make sure his truck is as fast as possible. Jeb says Ward is able to diagnose the way the truck is acting and suggest the adjustments that will make it a better. With that, Jeb is getting better too. He's grabbed six poles this season and has had solid finishes every week. He finds himself 4th in the point standings.  Jeb says he knows he must keep working hard and performing at high level in Trucks to achieve his ultimate goal--driving in the Sprint Cup Series.
