Michael Waltrip Racing | Jeff Burton to return in June

Michael Waltrip Racing will have driver Jeff Burton running a limited schedule. He will drive for a test Tuesday, May 27, at Pocono Raceway, and his first Sprint Cup Series event in an MWR car will be June 15 at the Michigan International Speedway. Burton has already made one start this season for MWR, and he placed 17th in that event in March back at Las Vegas. "I've really enjoyed the situation I'm in, I really have. When (NBC executive producer) Sam Flood and I first sat down and talked, one of the things that he was me was, 'Are you going to be ready to do this?' I told him I was, and I thought I was, but to be absolutely honest, how do you really know? It's all I've ever done, and it's been such a huge part of my life," Burton said.

Fantasy Tip: Burton will be a nice play for savvy fantasy owners in pools which allow limited starts for drivers. Since Burton is running a limited schedule, there is no worry about exceeding his starts. He is a sleeper at Michigan, and a guy you need to remember when the circuit stops in the Irish Hills.
