I admit I am not but for those of you who are, driver Jeff Burton will have a guest appearance on General Hospital. According to NASCAR.COM Burton will share scenes with Dr. Patrick Drake portrayed by NASCAR fan Jason Thompson. Burton, driver of the No. 31 Chevrolet, will visit the set of General Hospital on Thursday to take part in scenes with top neurosurgeon and Port Charles resident Dr. Patrick Drake. Drake’s character, 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," Burton said. "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."
