Homestead, FL (4 March 2011)– Adam Burrows and Trevor Hopwood are eager to do Kia Motors proud in the Kia 200 race weekend at Homestead Miami Speedway, and that effort got off to a fast start on Friday in qualifying. Burrows set a fast lap time of 1:32.530 seconds with the No. 12 Kia Forte Koup to net seventh on the starting grid for Saturday’s Kia 200.

The performance was the best of the young season to date, and was all the more remarkable after a small mechanical issue saw the No. 12 entry not participate in one of the two practice sessions ahead of qualifying. But the Kinetic Motorsports crew hard work saw the car ready to go for the 15-minute qualifying session as Burrows delivered yet another stout performance.

“Thanks to the guys for getting everything sorted out and having the car ready to go in time for qualifying,” said Burrows. “We missed some time to work on the handling, so I think there could be some more speed still to be unlocked in this car. But I’m happy to be so close to the pole time and I feel like we’ve got a car thats going to be very good in the race tomorrow.”

The race, which will be paced by the all-new Kia Optima Turbo for the first time in Series history, will see Burrows open the 2.5-hour event from behind the wheel before turning the machine over to Hopwood. The duo often trade the qualifying and finishing race duties to find the best possible result at every track.

Saturday’s race will take the green flag at 4:15 PM local time, with SPEED set to broadcast the race March 19th at 2:00 PM ET.
