With both Harrison Burton and Jenna Petty also quite open with each other's mentions on their social media, the couple is the talk of the town currently in stock car racing circles.

Contrary to popular belief, Jenna Petty is not related to NASCAR legend Richard 'The King' Petty.

Petty and Harrison Burton have been reported to have started dating all the way back in 2017.

Petty, 21, is also the captain of her university's dancing team, as well as a member of Dance Productions - The Remix. She was born on March 29, 2002.

While her dancing exploits and relationship with Harrison Burton is well known, Petty is also a part of the Motor Racing Outreach program, a non-denominational Christian Protestant organization.

With an aim to serve the NASCAR community, the non-profit organization offers various services to drivers from all series of stock car racing who are unable to visit regular church events due to their hectic schedules.

The organization was founded by Max Helton in 1988.
