ABOUT HARRISON

Harrison Burton, native of Huntersville, N.C., will run a combination of races in the NASCAR K&N Series, ARCA Racing Series and multiple Super Late Model Series, with limited appearances in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series during the 2018 NASCAR season.

The 17-year-old driver won the 2017 NASCAR K&N East Series championship on the strength of five victories, 12 top-five and 14 top-10 finishes. The young driver also competed in a variety of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, ARCA Racing Series and Super Late Model Series events.

In 2016, he competed in his first ARCA Racing Series event as a 15-year-old, notching a third-place result in his series debut. He also won three Super Late Model races during the 2016 season, including the Southern Super Series at Five Flags Speedway.

Burton made history in 2015 by becoming the youngest driver to start and compete in the K&N Pro Series West Series (15 years, eight days old).

Following a victory at New Smyrna Speedway in 2014, he became the youngest Division I winner in the history of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.

Burton earned his first pole position at the age of 11 in the Late Model Series and won his first Pro Late Model race the following year. He won three quarter midget championships early in his career, proving his talent from the minute he stepped into a race car.

Burton hopes to continue his family’s rich racing heritage. His father, Jeff, earned 21 NASCAR premier series victories, and his uncle, Ward, won the 2002 Daytona 500.
