Burton to Appear on ABC Daytime’s “General Hospital”

Post  harleysgal62 on Tue Feb 17, 2009 7:52 pm

WELCOME, N.C. (Feb. 17, 2009) – Jeff Burton, driver of the No. 31
Caterpillar Chevrolet Impala SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will
trade in his fire suit and helmet for an acting role on ABC Daytime’s
“General Hospital.”

Burton, a 21-time winner in NASCAR’s premier
division, will visit the set of General Hospital Feb. 19 and take part
in scenes with top neurosurgeon and Port Charles resident Dr. Patrick
Drake. Drake’s character, which is played by Canadian actor Jason
Thompson, is an avid fan of racing on the popular daytime Emmy
award-winning series.

“I’m excited about going to the set of
General Hospital and taking on a role with Jason,” explained Burton.
“I’ve been in commercials and was a guest star on a sitcom a couple of
years ago so I’m hoping those appearances prepped me for my soap opera
debut. Luckily, I get to play myself and talk racing, which will help
take some of the pressure off.”

After Thompson teaches Burton
the ins and outs of being a soap opera actor, the roles will reverse
when Thompson visits Auto Club Speedway, located in Fontana, Calif., to
shadow Burton on the day of the Auto Club 500. The South Boston, Va.,
native will treat the actor to a pace car ride before heading out to
his sponsor’s hospitality tent where both will participate in
question-and-answer and autograph sessions. Before taking a seat atop
the Cat Racing team’s pit box for the Sprint Cup Series race, the
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada native will participate in the race track’s
pre-race festivities by attending the driver’s meeting and driver
introductions.

Scheduled air time of Burton and Thompson’s episode is slated for mid-March.

That's cool, but just saying Burton made me think you were talking about Steve Burton. I was about to say, whoa Guza must really be in love with SB if he thinks that's news! lol!

Me too, but we ALL know how much Guza loves Steve. Kinda makes you wonder if he's got a Steve shrine at his house.

My hubby has a race on right now and that reminded me of this. Did I miss it? I don't rememeber him being on...

It could have been while I was on vacation. I did not see any episodes from that week.

You didn't miss anything. He was at Jake's having a beer and talking to Coleman, and Patrick came in after fighting with Robin. Patrick kept talking about how much he knew about racing, and Jeff Burton was trying to give him some input. Patrick told him he didn't know what he was talking about. Jeff was slightly amused, said goodbye to Coleman and left. Then Coleman told Patrick who it was, and he obviously felt like a stupid ass.
