Harrison Burton‘s rookie season in the NASCAR Cup Series was completed, but he was still unhappy

His opening 12 races in the No 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing were not celestial, making him sad

The 21-year-old son of a retired driver and recent NBC Sports judge Jeff Burton learns that he is coming off a career-best 14th-place finish Sunday at Darlington Raceway

Burton said in a Wednesday teleconference that It’s been an uneven start, to confess the least,”

He said that the Fourteenth place is our best finish, so this is not good, and no one tries to hide that

Again Harrison Burton said he thinks there have been some accumulating injuries there, and he realizes now they’re reaping and rolling in the right direction

Burton ranks 30th in average running position at 24647, ahead of Corey LaJoie and Cody Ware of the 32 drivers who have run all 12 races

That’s far from his ordeal in the Xfinity Series, where he rated sixth on average by the end of 2021 after acquiring four wins for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2020
