Hes since been named an analyst for NBC Sports Groups coverage of NASCAR. Although Las Vegas is the only announced race to date, Burton said he feels more races are coming. There are other ones we feel pretty sure about that were going to run, but we havent really talked about it yet so we might change our mind, he said.
