Sports Force Parks to sponsor NASCAR driver Harrison Burton


NASCAR driver Harrison Burton has announced his 2018 racing schedule which includes races in the K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the ARCA Racing Series. Sports Force Parks will be Burton’s primary sponsor for the Toledo ARCA 200 at Toledo Speedway in May.

Burton, a 17-year-old who captured the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East title in just his second full season last year and won his only ARCA Racing Series start of the season, is the son of former NASCAR driver and current NASCAR on NBC analyst, Jeff Burton.

Once again, Burton is a member of the prestigious NASCAR Next class, an elite group of young drivers designated as part of an industry-wide initiative designed to spotlight the best and brightest rising young stars in racing.

“Harrison represents the future of NASCAR, just like many of the young athletes who enter Sports Force Parks’ gates with dreams of making an impact on their respective sports. Supporting up and coming talent is very important to us, so this partnership is a natural fit,” said Brian Storm, President & CEO of Sports Force Parks.

Earlier in his career, the Huntersville, NC native notched a third-place finish in his ARCA Racing Series debut in 2016. In 2015, he made history by becoming the youngest driver ever to compete in the K&N Pro Series West (15 years, eight days old). The previous season, Burton also became the youngest winner in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series history by visiting Victory Lane at New Smyrna Speedway in 2014.
