LONG POND, Pa. – In the wake of sponsorship issues that have curtailed his NASCAR XFINITY Series appearances for Richard Petty Motorsports, Jeb Burton is happy for a one-race opportunity to help establish a baseline for the No. 32 GoFas Racing Ford, which has been driven this year by Jeffrey Earnhardt.

Beyond this weekend at Pocono, however, future rides for Burton are uncertain.

“Getting back over here on the Cup side will be fun,” Burton said on Friday at Pocono. “I thank GoFas Racing for giving me the opportunity to come out here and try to improve their program a little bit.

“Right now, this is all I’m going to do. I’ll run here, and I’m not sure what the rest of the season holds for me.”
