Harrison Burton will have many voices in his ear this season.
Competing in four series with three teams in more than 30 races across NASCAR, ARCA and Super Late Models, a trio of crew chiefs will be guiding Burton as he attempts to rebound from a disappointing 2016 season.
It might seem overwhelming and perhaps discombobulating to have so many feedback echoes as the 16-year-old makes the leap into a partial schedule in the Camping World Truck Series.

“My dad obviously knows a lot about racing, and he’s been doing it for many years, but nobody knows everything, so it’s always good to have second opinions. In this case, I have third and fourth opinions, which is really good. I think the more knowledge I can soak up the better.”
