This partnership will mark the second time Burton has driven the No. 98 Ford, including a 15th-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2014. Most recently, Burton competed in 11 NASCAR XFINITY Series races with Richard Petty Motorsports, recording one Top-10 and four Top-15 finishes.
"I'm really excited to get back on the track in the XFINITY Series with Biagi-DenBeste Racing," said Burton. "They've shown they have fast cars and just scored a big win at Daytona," said Burton. "I'm thrilled to again partner with Estes. They are a great company and have been big supporters of my career."
Estes Express Lines is a full-service freight transportation provider, headquartered in Burton's home state of Virginia. The Richmond-based company has previously partnered with Burton in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Camping World Truck Series.
Estes President and CEO Rob Estes weighed in on the sponsorship. "We're proud of our association with this Virginia native who has gone on to gain national recognition. It's exciting to once again support him as he takes to the track in the No. 98 Estes Ford in Indianapolis and Richmond. We want to thank our vendors who helped make sponsoring these two races a reality. The Estes team is very excited to be part of the 2016 season, and our 16,000 employees nationwide will definitely be rooting for him."
