Father and Son: When Jeff Burton drove the No. 9 Roush Racing Ford to victory in the Alsco Uniforms 300 on May 27, 2000, his wife, Kim, was pregnant with the couple’s second child.

The final half of the 300-mile race that day was a battle between Burton and Jeff Gordon as the two NASCAR Cup Series drivers exchanged the lead multiply times before Burton made the race-winning pass on lap 192.

Later that year, on Oct. 9, the Burtons celebrated the arrival of Harrison Brian Burton.

On May 29, 2021, Harrison Burton will make his second Alsco Uniforms 300 start as he attempts to join his dad as the only father and son to win the prestigious NASCAR Xfinity Series race.

■ Torrid Tyro: Ty Gibbs, the 18-year-old grandson of NASCAR Hall of Fame team owner Joe Gibbs, shocked the racing world in February when he went to Victory Lane in his first NASCAR Xfinity Series start.

Driving the No. 54 Toyota Supra, Gibbs has the opportunity to become the youngest NASCAR Xfinity Series race winner in Charlotte Motor Speedway history if he can execute a similar feat during the Alsco Uniforms 300 on Saturday, May 29.

The current mark is held by Kyle Busch, who won the 300-mile race just 27 days after celebrating his 19thbirthday in 2004.

Exclusive Club: Only two drivers – Rob Moroso (1989) and Tyler Reddick (2019) – have won the Alsco Uniforms 300 and the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship in the same year since the series debuted in 1982.

Defending series champion Austin Cindric and Justin Allgaier, who finished second to Cindric in the title chase a year ago, are among those who could make that select group a trio.

Cindric has two top-10 finishes in three Alsco Uniforms 300 starts, and he ended up third a year ago.

Allgaier has recorded top-five finishes in the two most recent Alsco Uniforms 300s. He was second to Reddick in 2019 and came home fifth behind Kyle Busch last year.
