2 Comments

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Harrison Burton held off the field in a one-lap overtime shootout to win Saturday’s ARCA Menards Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

It was Burton’s first career start at Daytona.

“To win at Daytona is so special,” Burton said. “I wanted to do a crazy burnout but I wanted to take it in. It was a really humbling experience to win at Daytona.

“This is probably the biggest day in my life, in my racing career at least.”

The win is the third career ARCA victory for the son of NASCAR on NBC analyst Jeff Burton.

Harrison Burton, 18, will run the full Gander Outdoors Truck schedule this season for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Todd Gilliland finished second. Grant Quinlan placed third and was followed by pole-sitter Christian Eckes and Sean Corr.
