2019 Fantasy Outlook
Burton returns to KBM this season, and will take on his first full season of action in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. The 18-year-old prodigy has raced a combined 15 starts in this division over the last three years with Kyle Busch Motorsports. Burton has forged four Top-5 and seven Top-10 finishes, including one pole, in those starts. The talent level is quite obvious. Burton nabbed five wins and marched to the championship in the K&N Pro Series East in 2017, so he's clearly one of the up-and-coming talents in the sport. KBM will put him in the strong No. 18 Toyota entry, and likely pair him with veteran crew chief Rudy Fugle. One or more visits to victory lane is all but in the bag, and an outside run at the championship is possible. Read Past Outlooks
Eight Xfinity Races for JGR
XFINITY Series
April 2, 2019
Joe Gibbs Racing announced the newest addition to its NASCAR Xfinity Series team as Burton will join the organization for eight races in the No. 18 Toyota, starting in this weekend's Alsco 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway, NASCAR.com reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a tremendous opportunity for Burton to grow. JGR will give him a crack at the team's strong No. 18 Toyota in the Xfinity Series for eight starts. Burton is currently ninth in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series driver standings after a slow start for Kyle Busch Motorsports. The young driver will hope to grow his skills and show what he's learned starting this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway in the team's No. 18 Toyota Supra.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
KBM will once again carry on their rich tradition of developing young NASCAR talent. Burton is the son of former NASCAR great, Jeff Burton. The 17-year-old got just a cup of coffee in the truck series in 2017, but now he'll up his participation in the upcoming season. Burton will get nine starts in the strong No. 51 Toyota Tundra. He nabbed just one Top 10 in his six starts last season, but we expect he'll be much better this season. Jones, Davis and Herbst will fill out the rest of the 25-event schedule. Mike Hillman Jr. will call the shots from the top of the war wagon, and this will be one of the stronger multi-driver teams in the Camping World Truck Series in 2018.
