For the second year in a row, Jeff Burton made it into the chase, but for this 40-year old driver, just making it, isn't enough.
"It's very important to us, it's about competing and making it to the end," says Burton.
Though Burton may not be thrilled with the results thus far, the 14-year veteran of Nascar's top circuit is still excited to be out on the race track.
"I love what i do," he explains.
Sunday's race in Texas could be a turning point for Burton, he is the only two-time winner there, with his last victory coming earlier this year, and it's never too late to make a case in the chase.
