Disappointing Day In New Jersey For Burrows

Disappointing Day In New Jersey For Burrows

Millville, N.J. (12 May 2012) – After Compass360 Racing co-driver Andrew Novich notched a season-best qualifying result of sixth, his co-driver Adam Burrows was hoping that the strong qualifying result would translate to the best finish of the season for the driving duo.

Those ambitions were further fueled as Novich made a great start to the B+ Heroes NJMP 200, moving up to fight for a podium position in the early laps of the race. Unfortunately, the day came to a sudden and screeching halt as a dispute over third place at the entrance of high speed turn one saw Novich spinning and careening into the tire barriers after contact with a broad shouldered competitor.

Fortunately, the well-built Compass360 machine saw young Novich emerge unscathed, but the damage was done and the two will have to look ahead to Round 5 at Mid-Ohio for another bite at the apple.

“That was a big hit that Andrew took, so a huge thanks to the job the Compass guys do building these cars,” said Burrows. “It was a very good weekend for us, right up to that moment. I can’t say enough about the job Andrew has been doing this season. His maturity in approach has led to more speed and consistency at each race. The absolutely stellar job he did in qualifying is a perfect example of how his preparation has paid off. No question that today was a heartbreak, but there are a lot of positives to be taken with us to Mid-Ohio.”
