NASCAR to offer free youth tickets for XFINITY Series , Camping World Truck Series
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Aug. 22, 2016) -- NASCAR today announced exclusively via Facebook Live that beginning in 2017, kids ages 12 and younger will be admitted free to all NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. The announcement was made during an all-kids press conference hosted at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C. The press conference also kicked off Kids Drive NASCAR, a week-long, youth initiative leading up to this weekend’s national series races at Michigan International Speedway and Road America . "There really is no other experience like attending a NASCAR race in person, and that's especially true for kids," said Jill Gregory, NASCAR senior vice president and chief marketing officer. "So many children become lifelong NASCAR fans because their parents brought them to their first race, and this new ticket offering makes it even more affordable for families to create memories that will last a lifetime." Many race tracks already have in place a bevy of offerings geared towards youth, including youth autograph sessions, youth garage tours, kids' clubs and designated kids’ zones. Numerous tracks also have employed various ticket platforms focused on youth, but this new program marks the first time where tracks will institute a consistent offer wherever NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races take place. Beginning in 2017, the number of complimentary tickets available for children 12 and younger will vary from venue to venue for every adult ticket purchased. Specific track policies and procedures, including sections in which the tickets are offered, will still apply and may differ for each track as well in an effort to welcome and accommodate as many families as possible. This program is another example of NASCAR-sanctioned tracks improving the at-track experience with the ultimate goal of delivering additional value and an unparalleled live-event experience for NASCAR fans. "NASCAR Hammer Down" host Karsyn Elledge, and NASCAR Next drivers Todd Gilliland and Harrison Burton helped announce the program during Monday’s kids-only press conference, the first in a series of industry events and activities that will celebrate Kids Drive NASCAR week. For the latest Kids Drive NASCAR news and content, fans can visit NASCAR.com and follow NASCAR on Facebook , Twitter , Instagram , and Snapchat. Be sure to tune-in when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series hits the track this weekend at Michigan International Speedway for the Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday, Aug. 28 at 2 p.m. ET on NBCSN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and MRN.
Burton readies for Camping World Truck Series debut with father at his side
Related: Martinsville practice results " Views from opening day MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Heading into this weekend, Harrison Burton's experience level at Martinsville Speedway was next to zero, counting only a smattering of laps shaking down his cousin Jeb's Late Model car not long ago. His lap count went up significantly Friday in practice for his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in Saturday's Texas Roadhouse 200 Presented by Alpha Energy Solutions (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Should things go according to plan, he'll add another 200 more circuits to his developing background at the .526-mile track in his first NASCAR national series event. But the 16-year-old NASCAR Next driver has some tangible factors to help offset his lack of laps around the historic short track -- a top-quality Kyle Busch Motorsports truck and some sage advice from his father, Jeff Burton , who logged 39 career starts here, including a win in 1997, before transitioning to the NBC Sports broadcast team. The elder Burton was by his son's side after Friday's final practice, providing a sounding board with helpful pointers. "He's had tons of experience at places like this and obviously at this very race track, he's won in the (Sprint) Cup Series which is one of the hardest things to do," Harrison Burton said. "Obviously he's a great resource and I've utilized him pretty much every day coming up to this event. I've talked to him about it and tried to pick his brain as much as I could. He's really smart about this kind of stuff, that's for sure." Burton posted the seventh-fastest lap in Friday's early practice and followed that with the 18th spot on the leaderboard in final practice in the KBM No. 18 Toyota. But Friday was also about gaining experience and making first impressions at one of NASCAR's most rhythm-dependent venues. "It's probably one of the hardest race tracks I've been to," Burton said. "I feel like the braking and how to get off the brakes, how to get on them and how far to drive in -- it's so easy to overdrive these corners because they're so little. Compared to how long the straightaways are, it's just disproportional. It really throws me for a loop, but I'm learning as fast as I can and I'm trying my hardest." Burton's path to NASCAR's national ranks has been a fairly conventional one, but with extraordinary progress. He finished seventh this year in his first full season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, but has also made his mark with an excellent run of Late Model success. Burton turned 16 on Oct. 9, making him eligible for national series races on tracks 1.25 miles or shorter. Making the move three weeks after blowing out the candles might seem like an accelerated jump, but Burton says he hasn't locked himself into a firm timetable for his stock-car racing career. "It's hard to tell," Burton said. "Just to make it in one of NASCAR's three series is so, so tough. You have to do so many things right and have so many things align for you to have an opportunity like I have now, so I didn't really have a timeline. I was just going to go out every race and race as hard as I could every time I did and hopefully impress some people to get a shot at it." The timetable isn't quite set for 2017 and beyond, Burton said, with plenty of pathways still to be decided in the offseason. "The schedule's still in the works, for sure," Burton said. "We have a lot of options and a lot of things to think about, which is great. You always want to have options and hopefully you make the right choices leading up. It's tough to foresee the future. We might choose right, we might choose wrong, but no matter what, we've got to stay 100 percent committed to our choice. I'm really excited for the future and what it has to come. I hope we make the right choices." Burton indicated he has modest goals for his maiden voyage in the truck series , hoping to complete every lap but also keeping the door open to grab more if the opportunity exists. It's helped having Kyle Busch Motorsports personnel as support, bringing a certain level of swagger in their approach to the race weekend. "All these guys out here want to come out here and win every single week and that's what you have to have," Burton said. "You have to have that drive to come out and beat everyone and walk down pit road and say, 'I'm going to beat you and you and you and you,' and that's what these guys have. They come out here 100 percent committed. There's a lot of intensity involved, which is awesome. It's a great environment and I've loved it so far." &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;

Byron earns fourth Camping World Truck Series win of 2016
RELATED: Results SPARTA, KY. -- William Byron didn't have the fastest truck at the end of Thursday night's Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway. But Byron had the most important ingredient in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the newly repaved and reconfigured 1.5-mile track. Byron held the top spot for all 42 laps after the final restart of the event on lap 108 of 150. It was no cakewalk. Byron had to stave off assaults from both runner-up John Hunter Nemechek and third-place finisher Daniel Hemric , who dogged the race winner -- and each other -- for the entire closing green-flag run. At the end, after surviving a last-ditch effort from Nemechek, Byron's No. 9 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota crossed the finish line .190 seconds ahead of Nemechek's family-owned No. 8 Chevrolet. Hemric was .291 seconds behind the winner at the finish. The victory was the fourth in 10 starts this season for the 18-year-old Sunoco Rookie of the Year frontrunner, and it was the 51st win for KBM, most all-time for a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team. "It's a dream come true to get a fourth win like this," Byron said. "I can't thank the team enough." With Christopher Bell finishing fourth, KBM grabbed two of the top four spots, but team owner Kyle Busch had to watch the last 93 laps from the sidelines after Spencer Gallagher checked his Chevrolet up in front of him and triggered a wreck that sent Busch's Toyota spinning into the outside wall on Lap 57. Busch expressed frustration in the aftermath of the crash, but was more upbeat after the race when reflecting on the meteoric rise of the team he launched in 2010. "This is a special moment," said Busch, whose drivers have won the last four series races. "It's been really cool. What to me makes it most special, I think, is how we've done it in such a short period of time. "From 2010 through 2016, we've gotten 51 wins, and many of the teams that we excelled ahead of have been around a lot longer than we have. That's pretty awesome." Byron felt a vibration in his truck in the closing laps but stayed on the throttle. "It was tough," he acknowledged. "I honestly felt like I had a right rear tire going down. With the new surface, it's hard to get a tire to last that long. I had quite the vibration the last three or four laps. "I was just hoping and praying that there would be no cautions. Just a great run for us. Our Liberty University Tundra was really good tonight, and we were able to stay out front that last run and that was the key." Though they had faster trucks in the closing laps, Nemechek and Hemric couldn't focus solely on Byron because they were battling each other. Hemric lost momentum into Turn 1 on Lap 146 when he closed quickly on Byron's bumper, and he and Nemechek ran side-by-side for the better part of two laps before Nemechek took the second spot on Lap 147. Though Nemechek was clearly stronger than Byron through high-speed Turns 1 and 2, he wasn't able to get to Byron's rear bumper on the final lap. "The 19 (Hemric) got down on my right rear a couple of times and got me loose, but that's just racing, I guess," Nemechek said. "It sucks to be disappointed with second, but I guess that's a good thing." Hemric gave a tip of the hat to Byron, who had to work extremely hard to stay out front. "The 9 (Byron) was put in a position where he had to run perfectly for the last 40-45 laps, or else he wouldn't have won," Hemric said. "So congratulations to him." Byron, locked into the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase, extended his series lead to 13 points over second-place Matt Crafton , who ran eighth, and 17 points over Hemric and Timothy Peters (ninth Thursday), who are tied for third.
