Ward Burton is one of the most acclaimed drivers in NASCAR history with a victory at the 2002 Daytona 500 and multiple wins at Darlington, considered the toughest course on the NASCAR circuit.

Ward has been an enthusiastic user of State Water Heaters products since the mid-1990s when he selected a large State gas unit to handle the hot water needs of his Halifax, Virginia home.

Since 2006, Ward has been an official ambassador for the State brand. He uses State products not only at his primary residence and vacation homes, but also at all facilities operated by the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation. Ward’s son Jeb is now part of the State racing team in his #27 Chevy.

Ward recently had an energy-saving 80-gallon State hybrid electric heat pump installed at his vacation residence in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.

Ward chose this innovative technology because he knows it can lower water heating costs by 70 percent or more. “That’s just one of the many reasons why I have State water heaters in all my homes and foundation properties,” said Burton.

“Over the years, I’ve done a lot of events with State dealers and contractors,” he said. “They’re great people who make and maintain great products.”
