Richard Petty Motorsports has signed Jeb Burton to drive its Number-43 Ford full-time in the 2016 NASCAR X-FINITY Series. Burton, the son of 2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton, competed in the Camping World Truck Series in 2013 and 2014. Last year, he made 28 starts for B-K Racing in the Sprint Cup Series, where Burton posted a best finish of twenty-seventh in the fall race at Martinsville Speedway. Veteran crew chief Drew Blickensderfer will lead Burton’s team, which finished thirteenth in the final 2015 point standings with Dakoda Armstrong behind the wheel. He has since moved over to J-G-L Racing for the 2016 campaign.
