The All-American Speedway in Roseville, Calif., will be the site of the K&N Pro Series debut of Harrison Burton, son of former Sprint Cup driver and current NBC Sports analyst Jeff Burton.

Harrison Burton, 15, will make his series debut in Saturday’s NAPA 150 with his father’s race team, Jeff Burton Autosports. The younger Burton will be behind the wheel of the No. 12 DEX Imaging Toyota. Dex Imaging also has been his sponsor in six races this season for JBA in the CARS Super Late Model series, where he has two top-five finishes.

“I am excited to have DEX on board as we break into the K&N Series,” Burton said in a team release. “I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish so far. They have been such an incredible supporter of our team and I’m looking forward to taking this next step together.”

Burton, a three-time USAC Quarter Midget national champion, will continue in both Super Late Model and K&N racing in 2016 with Dex Imaging as his sponsor.

Burton has earned two PASS Pro-Late Model wins, two World Series of Asphalt Pro-Late Model wins and three Super Late Model wins.
