Report: Burton, RCR Working On Extension

[1]Richard Childress Racing and Jeff Burton are reportedly [2] working on a deal to help Burton finish his career in an RCR Chevy. Burton’s contract is up at the end of the season, as is the team’s contract with sponsor Caterpillar.

Caterpillar is expected to renew, although to a lesser extent than it is currently involved, sources say.

Burton said:

My intention and RCR’s intention is to be back after this year for sure. That’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that we’re going to get all that done. I feel good about my future at RCR, look at it as the place where I want to spend the rest of my career. I’m real comfortable there. I really like Richard. It’s difficult because our job is difficult. But you’ll see me at RCR next year.
