Burton signs extension with RCR, CAT staying on #31

Veteran driver Jeff Burton will continue to drive the #31 Caterpillar Chevrolet in the Sprint Cup Series.

Burton joined RCR racing in August of 2004 with a 12th place finish at Michigan, previously he had raced at Roush Racing in the #99. Burton began sporting the yellow and black Caterpillar colors in 2009 after Sprint forced RCR to end it’s contract with AT&T.

Since joining RCR Burton has 4 victories, the last coming at Charlotte in 2008. In 19 seasons at the cup level he has 21 career victories.

The exact financial terms of Burton’s new deal have not been revealed but the 43-year-old has been on record saying he would like to end his career at RCR.
