Jeb Burton will make his third Xfinity Series start with Biagi-DenBeste Racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Oct. 7.

The team announced Wednesday that Burton will drive the No. 98 Ford with support from new partners The Z Real Estate Group and Keller Williams Burlington. In his previous two starts with the team, Burton finished 12th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and 19th at Richmond International Raceway.

“I’m really excited and thankful for the opportunity to run the No. 98 The Z Real Estate Group KW Burlington Ford with Biagi-DenBeste Racing in Charlotte,” Burton said in a team release. “Biagi-DenBeste Racing has shown speed in their cars all year long, especially getting the win in Daytona in July. I’ve had a couple of solid runs with them this year, and am excited to get back to the track and get a good finish at Charlotte.”

Charlotte will be Burton’s 14th race this season. He started the year with Richard Petty Motorsports but lost his ride in June following a financial dispute between the organization and his sponsor, J. Streicher. Burton’s season-best finish is a 10th-place at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Puryear Tank Lines was also announced by Biagi-DenBeste as an associate sponsor of the No. 98 at Charlotte.
