Even though he sits in the middle of the field, Burton still believes his team can get back into the thick of things with so much racing left this season.  Coming into this weekend, Burton has had two top ten finishes and has won twice in the heart of Texas.

“Texas every time we go there, it’s different,” said Burton of the speedway he won the inaugural Sprint Cup Series event in 1997.  “That’s why we’ve seen so many winners.  That track doesn’t have a personality; every time we go there it is something different.”

Burton will race chassis No. 385 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable this weekend. This is a brand new No. 31 Chevrolet that will debut this weekend.

His last win at the track was in 2007.
