NASCAR fans who have been missing Ward Burton in recent years will have a new driver to cheer for in 2013. Ward's son Jeb has signed with Turner Motorsports to race the full 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule plus a few selected Nationwide Series events.
Jeb, currently 20 years old, started five Truck series events early last season and produced a career-best eighth place finish in Charlotte.
2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton was very popular during his racing days as a down-to-earth driver and genuine nice guy. It will be interesting to see if Jeb has inherited his Dad's talent and can make his own way to Victory Lane.
