Burton and Jones Join Silver Hare Racing at Charlotte Pro-Am
March 17, 2021
(High Point, NC) Two NASCAR Xfinity Series stars will drive Silver Hare Racing prepared TA2 Camaros at this weekend’s Trans Am Series Presented by Pirelli Pro-Am event at the Charlotte ROVAL. Harrison Burton and Brandon Jones, both four-time winners in the Xfinity Series and Joe Gibbs Racing drivers, are no strangers to the Trans Am series, having made multiple starts between 2018 and 2020. Both drivers will be working around their Xfinity Series commitment on Saturday at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
In addition to fielding multiple full season Trans Am TA2 entries, Silver Hare Racing uses the TA2 platform to provide road course driver development and testing opportunities to NASCAR teams. Burton and Jones are using the Pro-Am event to gain valuable seat time ahead of the ROVAL Xfinity race that is part of the NASCAR Playoffs in October.
“We’re really looking forward to having Brandon and Harrison join us at the ROVAL,” said Silver Hare Racing team manager Michael Self. “Both are not only great drivers that I’ve had the chance to work with and race against, they’re also great people and good friends of mine. I’ve watched both of them win through their racing careers and climb from the NASCAR K&N level up through the Xfinity series, so it’s really special for me to have them competing in the Silver Hare TA2 cars this weekend. We’re putting a big focus on road course driver development at Silver Hare Racing and having two winning Xfinity series drivers in our cars at a NASCAR Playoffs track really highlights our program.”
The Charlotte ROVAL Pro-Am event is the first of two back-to-back Trans Am weekends. The Silver Hare Racing crew will be working hard after the ROVAL to turn around three cars for the National Championship event at Road Atlanta one week later.
