Soap Fans Start Your Engines!

Nikki HechtCorrespondent IFebruary 18, 2009

If you are a fan of the daytime soap opera General Hospital you might want to keep yourself glued to the TV in March.  Jeff Burton recently filmed an episode of the daytime soap.  

He isn't playing a backstabbing friend, a crazed killer, a psychotic doctor, or a back from the dead family member.  Nope he's playing himself.  He's visiting GH talking to the head Neurosurgeon, one Patrick Drake (for you old time GH fans like myself...Yup that would be Dr. Noah Drake aka Rick Springfield's son). He'll be talking racing with Dr. Drake.  Patrick is played by actor Jason Thomspon, who is an avid race fan. 

If you can't wait until March to see Jason and Jeff together head out to Fontana this weekend.  Jason will be there.  He'll get a ride in the pace car and he'll be a part of a question answer session plus be doing other hospitality things before getting a seat in the 31 pits to watch the race!

Maybe if this cameo goes well for Jeff he can come back and end the Mob War between Sonny Corinthos and the Zacchara family!  He's a very wise man and isn't afraid to voice his opinion on things so I think ending a Mob War in Port Charles could be right up his alley.
