2020 NASCAR Xfinity Season Burton Strong Early
2020 NASCAR Xfinity Season – Burton Strong Early
Burton’s teammates, Brandon Jones and Riley Herbst, have also shown strength early this season.
Jones dominated the early portions of the Auto Club Speedway race – scoring the pole position and leading the first 73 (of 150) laps before a tire issue forced an unscheduled pit stop. He rebounded the very next race – taking the lead late from Kyle Busch and driving to his second career win at Phoenix Raceway. He also forever placed his name in the Toyota Racing history book by earning Toyota’s 500th NASCAR victory.
Rookie Herbst has also shown strength so far this season. Since experiencing trouble at Daytona, Herbst has scored three straight top 10 results – including a runner-up finish to his teammate Burton at Auto Club Speedway – and shown himself as a Playoff contender.
These three Toyota drivers, and the rest of the NASCAR Xfinity Series returns to the track May 19th at Darlington Raceway. The race will be shown on FS1 at 8pmEDT.
