Burton was ruled the leader after a four-car wreck on Lap 111 placed the race under its second red flag of the day and sent it to overtime.
Debris on the track sent the race into a second overtime and this time, Burton easily pulled ahead of Sheldon Creed and held him at by 0.113 seconds to earn his first win of the 2023 season.
The victory is the first for Jordan Anderson Racing and just the second career win for Burton, whose first win also came at Talladega in 2021.
“The only thing I’m disappointed with is I couldn’t do a burnout because I blew the transmission out of it,” Burton said. “Man, I’m pumped up and out of breath from yelling.
“Man, went through some stuff in the offseason. I’m more focused now than ever and these guys made racing fun again for me. Four our little team, you have no idea how big this is. This is huge. We’re locked in the playoffs.
“I promise you one thing, we’re going to drink a lot of beer tonight.”
Saturday’s race lasted just over three hours and featured two red flags – one for a car that barrel-rolled six times and another that ended up on its hood – and 10 cautions.
Parker Kligerman finished third, Cole Custer was fourth and collected the $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus and Brennan Poole rounded out the top-five.
Custer, Burton, Creed and Kligerman will be eligible for the final $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus of the season next weekend at Dover (Del.) Motor Speedway.
