Estes Express Lines Teams Up with JGL Racing and Jeb Burton
DENVER, NORTH CAROLINA (March 29, 2017) – JGL Racing is proud to announce that Estes Express Lines has joined them to sponsor Jeb Burton starting with the upcoming NASCAR XFINITY Series event at Texas Motor Speedway. Burton will pilot the No. 24 Estes Express Lines Toyota for the first of his scheduled events on April 8th at the Fort Worth, Texas track.
Headquartered in Virginia, Estes is a leading, full-service freight transportation provider offering a complete range of shipping solutions including LTL, time critical, volume & truckload, global and custom solutions. Founded in 1931 by W.W. Estes and still family-owned, Estes is the largest privately held LTL carrier in the nation. Estes is now one of the most respected total-solutions providers in the industry, with more than 200 U.S. terminals and a global service footprint.
“Estes and Jeb Burton Racing share the same Virginia roots, so we are pleased to help support Jeb as he continues to grow in the sport,” stated Rob Estes, President and CEO of Estes. “It will be exciting for our Estes team members to see the company’s name on the No. 24 Toyota Camry as it makes the rounds in six races, including Texas, two in Bristol, Daytona, Kentucky and Indianapolis. We like to think that having more than 16,000 Estes employees rooting for him will give Jeb the extra fuel he needs to race to victory!”
As previously announced, Burton will pilot the No. 24 Toyota for multiple races during the 2017 season. The 24-year old racer will be making his 17th career start in the NASCAR XFINITY Series when he climbs behind the wheel of the No. 24 Estes Express Lines Toyota for the first time at Texas Motor Speedway.
“I’m excited to have Estes Express Lines back on board this year,” said Jeb. “They’ve been a partner for 4 years now, and I’m grateful for their continued support. I’m looking forward to getting back to the terminals to visit employees and bring home some good finishes for them on the racetrack.”
Burton will also pilot the No. 24 Toyota in events at Bristol Motor Speedway (4/22), Daytona International Speedway (6/30), Kentucky Speedway (7/7), Indianapolis Motor Speedway (7/22) and Bristol Motor Speedway (8/18).
