CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Turner Scott Motorsports announced Wednesday that South Boston, Va.-based company Arrowhead has signed on for the 2013 season to support hometown driver Jeb Burton as he races full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for the first time.
The 20-year-old Burton, who is racing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in 2013, has made five Truck Series starts in his career, all last season. His best finish of eighth came last May at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The Burton name is no stranger to racing -- Jeb's father Ward is a former Daytona 500 winner, and his uncle Jeff is a 21-time winner on the Sprint Cup tour.
"I am so thankful to have the opportunity to represent Arrowhead in 2013," said Burton. "We all have high expectations for the 2013 season, including capturing the Rookie of the Year title and competing for wins in NCWTS.”
Burton’s announcement comes on the tail of a string of Turner Scott Motorsports news, including the rebranding of the team, the return of Justin Allgaier and sponsor Brandt and the hiring of Scott Zipadelli.
Arrowhead is a disposable electronic cigarette made by parent company Sequoyah Brands.
"We are confident in Turner Scott Motorsports and in Jeb's ability on the track. We know that Jeb will represent Arrowhead with class and continue the Burton family tradition of excellence in racing," said Kathy Farley, president of Sequoyah Brands.
