The Good News Is... Wrong Jeff Burton makes great story

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Jamie Gibson has long shared his love of NASCAR with his five kids.

The 40-year-old father from Louisville, Illinois has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Gibson is on a mission to get his favorite drivers to sign autographs so his kids will have something to remember him by.

Gibson sent a letter to Jeff Burton's home in Salisbury. Gibson enclosed cards for Burton to sign and return.

The only problem with this simple request, Jeff Burton the racing legend doesn't live in Salisbury, but Jeff Burton the Norfolk-Southern engineer does.

The train driving Burton got in touch with us to help get the request to the race car driving Burton.

The simple story ends with a request fulfilled and an even better story than just some autographs. Click the red camera icon to see the story.
