The Hot Pass: Early troubles for Burton

BY foxsports • February 7, 2009

Jeff Burton's start to the season did not go as planned.

Two laps into the second practice session for the Budweiser Shootout, the engine on the No. 31 Caterpillar Chevrolet blew.

"We just broke an engine," Burton said. "Our guys were real aggressive with our engine package here for the Shootout — which is what they are supposed to be doing. I am proud of them for throwing caution to the wind and coming out here to try and win this race.
