While running ninth on lap 61, Jeb Burton went for a ride into the inside wall down the backstretch at Texas Motor Speedway in the Alsco Uniforms 250 in his No. 10 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet Camaro.
Burton appeared to get loose as Josh Berry closed from behind in the No. 8 JR Motorsports car, and then the two appeared to make very slight contact. The contact sent Burton spinning, and eventually, crashing.

Burton, a native of Virginia, entered the day fifth in the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship standings. In his first season with Kaulig Racing, Burton has scored his first-career NXS victory and he had only scored one finish outside the top-20 before Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway.
