Homestead, FL (29 April 2012) -For the second consecutive race, Adam Burrows brought Compass360 Racing a top ten finish as he teamed with Andrew Novich for a run to Tenth in the No. 74 Dr. Kimberly Henry / Speed Secrets Honda Civic Si entry.
Novich opened the race from 23rd on the ST class grid, and worked his way forward during the opening half of the 2.5 hour race. That forward progress saw the No. 74 climb as high as second on the scoring pylon before he pitted to turn the controls over to Burrows. The exchange was a clean one, but as the field cycled through their respective pit stops, it left the former series champ deep in the field.
A final stop saw Burrows rejoin the field 21st in the order, good to go to the finish on fuel. As the field fought through three restarts in the last 30 laps of the race, he once again made the most of every opportunity to work his way up through the 66-car field to take a 10th place finish, matching the No. 74's result in the previous race at Barber Motorsports Park.
"Track position is just so key with a field that is this large, and with cars that are so competitive, it is really hard to make that up," said Burrows. "You had to fight for everything you could get out there. We were hoping for a better result but it was still a very positive weekend. Andrew continued his stellar work this season and had a perfect first stint. Ray (Lee-C360R Technical Director) had all the sums figured perfectly and the Honda Civics once again performed flawlessly this weekend. I thank we can look forward to building on this at New Jersey and hopefully picking up some momentum in the points."
Burrows will be back in action May 11-13 close to home as the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge travels to New Jersey Motorsports Park for round four of the 2012 season.
