DENVER (April 15, 2019) – For NASCAR rising star driver Jeb Burton, racing is in his blood. But, when the Halifax, Virginia native is not behind the wheel of his NASCAR Xfinity Series stock car, Burton can be found outdoors enjoying a hunting and fishing lifestyle that takes him far away from the fast-paced motor speedways of his “day job.”
Now, viewers of Sportsman Channel will have a chance to see what happens behind-the-scenes as Burton and team, including his father – former NASCAR driver and 2002 Daytona 500 champion, Ward – and fiancé Brandi, present an all-access pass to pit road and beyond in Crossroads with the Burtons.
The show, premiering in July 2019, will focus on Jeb Burton and his life on-and-off the speedways of NASCAR while also featuring his passion for hunting, conservation and the outdoor lifestyle.
“Crossroads with the Burtons will show us at our best and, hopefully, not worst, as we give viewers an inside look at the life of a professional stock car driver, son, fiancé, friend, outdoorsman and conservationist,” Burton described. “Viewers will get an up-close-and-personal look and come away thinking ‘these folks aren’t so different from me…except they race stock cars for a living!’”
“The Burtons are well-known in both the racing and outdoor lifestyle communities and we are excited to have them appear on Sportsman Channel,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore said. “We are doubly excited that Jeb, as a rising young star in NASCAR, is willing to share his other passion on camera, as well as help educate the public about conservation.”
Crossroads with the Burtons will air in July 2019. For more information about the show, visit: www.thesportsmanchannel.com.
