ASHLAND CITY, TN — State Water Heaters, a leading manufacturer of commercial and residential water heaters, today announced it will partner with Jeb Burton and Our Motorsports for the 2022 NASCAR season.

This year, Burton will be racing the 27 Chevy Camaro and will compete for a full season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the second consecutive year. The season kicks off Feb. 19, with the Beef. It's What's For Dinner. 300 at the Daytona International Speedway. During the 2021 season, Burton scored his first career Xfinity Series win at Talladega Superspeedway in the spring.
“After last year’s big season, I’m looking forward to carrying that momentum into 2022, and making our fans proud,” Burton said. “I’m incredibly grateful to have a continued partnership with a brand like State Water Heaters, which places a high value on many of the qualities I aim to exemplify through my racing career. It’s exciting that we also get to bring on a new partnership this season with the addition of Our Motorsports. We’re ready to make history this year.”

State has been involved with the Burton family since 2007 when it started working with Ward Burton, Jeb Burton’s father. The brand decided to continue its relationship with the Burton family when it began sponsoring Jeb during his debut NASCAR season in 2012. State will also remain a sponsor of Burton’s TV show, Crossroads with the Burtons, which chronicles Jeb’s and Ward’s work on the track and in wildlife conservation. The show can be found on the Sportsman’s Network.
“We’re proud of what Jeb continues to accomplish on the track, and we’re also incredibly proud to sponsor someone who so closely aligns with our values here at State Water Heaters,” said Jeff Storie, State Water Heaters marketing director. “Jeb’s resilience, consistency and reliability are just a few of the reasons we’ve continued to work with the Burton family for more than a decade.”
