Indianapolis, IN (26 July 2012)– Adam Burrows will achieve something he never thought possible this week as the former GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Champion is set to make his racing debut at the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Burrows will share the driving duties in the No. 74 Dr. Kimberly Henry/ Speed Secrets Honda Civic Si for Compass360 Racing (C360R) with co-driver Andrew Novich as the duo look to return to the GRAND-AM podium after having scored a strong run to third place at Mid-Ohio in June.

Friday’s 2.5-hour race (SPEED, August 5 12:00 PM ET) will be presaged by the most intense morning of the schedule, as the full race event-practice, qualifying, and race is all condensed into one fast Friday. Burrows will look to put the lessons learned in a brief test earlier this month to good use as he and Novich currently hold fifth in the Drivers Championship with three rounds still yet to go in the 2012 championship.

“It’s just amazing to be packing my helmet and suit – to go RACE AT INDY. Unbelievable,” said Burrows. “For me and my father (artist Bill Burrows http://billburrows.com/about.htm), the 500 was always THE race, so to have the chance to compete there is just incredible and I’m grateful to have this opportunity. It was good to get familiar with the layout earlier this month, and I think the big thing is going to be to have a clean day. We’ve only got a little window to go out there and find our rhythm with this car and the track and then it’s qualifying and then the race, so a mistake-free morning will hopefully pay off with a big result in the afternoon. This is going to be an exciting race. It is Indy, and everyone is going to be pushing harder and digging deeper. I can’t wait!”
