Harrison Burton will make his Xfinity Series debut this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, one of eight races he’ll drive for Joe Gibbs Racing this season, the team announced Monday.

Burton’s Xfinity races this season will be Bristol (April 6), Iowa (June 16), New Hampshire (July 20), Richmond (Sept. 20), Charlotte Roval (Sept. 28), Dover (Oct. 5), Kansas (Oct. 19) and Texas (Nov. 2). DEX Imaging will be Burton’s sponsor.

“It’s going to be a life-changing experience for me,” Burton said during the announcement on Joe Gibbs Racing’s Facebook page. “I’ve been working my whole life for this.”

The 18-year-old son of NASCAR on NBC analyst Jeff Burton is competing full-time this season in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

In five Truck races this season, Harrison Burton’s best finish is fifth at Las Vegas. His career-best finish in the series is third at Iowa and Phoenix in 2018.
