No doubt Jeb Burton’s holidays will be a bit merrier this year with the announcement Monday that he’s secured a full-time ride with Kaulig Racing for the 2021 season in NASCAR Xfinity Series, with Nutrien Ag Solutions on board as primary partner. 


Burton, the son of 2002 Daytona 500 Champion, Ward Burton, ran two full seasons in the Truck series and has 33 Cup starts under his belt, but has yet to run a full Xfinity schedule and compete for a championship. The 28-year-old Virginia native has 43 series starts across seven seasons for six different teams, collecting six top fives and 15 top 10s. His best series finishes, a second and a third, came in 2020 for JR Motorsports.  

While in the Truck series, Burton scored a win at Texas Motor Speedway along with seven top fives and 21 top 10s.  

Chris Rice, president of Kaulig Racing, declared Burton a great fit for the organization. “I’ve known the Burton family and worked with them back in the 1980s, so it feels like everything has come full circle. We are going to go out and compete for wins and championships. Jeb is a guy we can build a long term, successful program around.”


Burton said, “It’s an honor to have this opportunity driving full-time for Kaulig Racing and Nutrien Ag Solutions. I’ve worked so hard, not only behind the wheel, to get an opportunity like this, and it couldn’t be more perfect – representing a brand with the same values and beliefs as my family. This partnership represents everything we are, and I can’t thank Matt Kaulig, Chris Rice and Nutrien Ag Solutions enough.”

Brent Smith, VP of Marketing, Sustainability + Proprietary Products at Nutrien Ag Solutions stated, “Both Jeb and his dad Ward are longtime customers of ours and have worked tirelessly on agriculture and forestry conservation and sustainability. We can’t wait to lead the field with Jeb.”
