RICHMOND, Va. — ThorSport Racing has announced this morning that they have secured a full-season sponsorship for the No. 13 team driven by Jeb Burton.

After running the first four races on the Camping World Truck Series schedule on a race-by-race basis, the ThorSport No. 13 team has officially become a full-time race team.  Estes Express Lines – a national trucking company – announced today that their name will adorn the hood of the No. 13 entry throughout the 2014 season.

The announcement was made in a ceremony in Richmond, Virginia, that was attended by Burton and other members of the ThorSport Racing family.

“It’s an honor to be driving the No. 13 Estes Toyota,” Burton said. “Each time I get behind the wheel, I’m not only representing the Burton family and ThorSport Racing, now I have the privilege of representing everyone at Estes, which means a team of 15,000 employees including more than 6,000 truck drivers.”

ThorSport Racing owner Duke Thorson added on to Burton’s statement with a statement of his own at the ceremony.

“Everyone at ThorSport Racing has a lot of faith in Jeb as an up-and-coming driver and we’re happy to have found a company with Estes’ professional legacy and values to sponsor our program,” Thorson said. “We’d like to thank everyone at Estes for their support and confidence as this relationship moves forward.”

With this sponsorship, ThorSport will now field three full-time entries and Burton will join Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter as full-time Camping World Truck Series drivers.

The Estes Express Lines sponsorship will begin this Friday with the Lucas Oil 200 at the Dover International Speedway.
