N31JB is NASCAR driver Jeff Burtons private jet. This airplane is a 1999 Cessna Citation CJ1 turbo fan jet powered by twin Williams FJ-44 jet engines that produce 1,965 lbs. of thrust at takeoff.

A similar Citation would likely sell for $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 on the used jet market.
In a standard configuration this jet seats 4 passengers, and a crew of 2. But, it can be flown by a single pilot.

The Citation is a fast jet. It’s up to 150 mph faster than a turbo-prop. This jet can cruise at 448 mph, and has a maximum ceiling of 41,000 feet.

Normal takeoff distance for this jet is 3,250 feet, and normal landing distance is 2,590
feet.

Baggage access on this jet is convenient with an exterior baggage compartment located just behinds the planes left engine. No lugging your bags up and down
the stairs.

A CJ1 can fly up to 1,500 miles without refueling.
