Burton turns first laps in Canada

Harrison Burton completed a test at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in preparation for his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race there later this year.

While the NASCAR Pinty’s Series is still one month away from holding its annual season opener during Victoria Day weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Harrison Burton brought his Kyle Busch Motorsports truck up to turn some laps for the first time.

The second generation driver will compete in the Truck Series event Aug. 26, his first on a road course in the series.

Burton, 17, is the son of former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Jeff Burton and is the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion.

After competing in six races last season and one race in 2016, Burton returns to KBM in 2018 with an expanded Truck Series schedule which will see him run nine races.
