Indianapolis, IN (4 September 2012)– After a long break in the racing schedule, Adam Burrows is itching to get back to work this weekend as the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge is set to stage the penultimate race of the 2012 season with the Continental Tire Sports Car Festival at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (MRLS).

Burrows will share the driving duties in the No. 74 Honda Civic Si for Compass360 Racing (C360R) with co-driver Andrew Novich, and the duo will sport a new look this weekend as Slime (www.slime.com) has signed on to partner with the team starting with the MRLS weekend.

The two, who scored a break through podium at Mid-Ohio, will arrive to the long-loved and hilly circuit with a month-long break to have digested the disappointment after leading but getting crashed out of the most recent race at the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Burrows and Novich enter the Continental Tire event weekend leading the Compass360 Racing championship charge, holding sixth in the Team Championship standings.

“Every driver loves racing at Laguna Seca, and I’m looking forward to having Slime on board with us–it’s exciting to have a new partner get involved and we’ll obviously be hoping to give them as strong an introduction to this as possible,” said Burrows. “Of course any visit to Laguna Seca isn’t complete without getting to see our old friend Bev Braga–who will of course be mad that I’m not calling the track by its real name!”

Instead of letting the disappointment from Indy marinate, Burrows has been keeping busy. The hot summer months have made the extensive cycling regimen all the more challenging and rewarding, and he has also been a frequent commuter to Lime Rock Park working as an instructor, trainer, and coach for the Lime Rock Park Club as well as during SCDA (http://www.scda1.com) events.

The steady progression up the charts, with four top-10s and two top-five finishes, was stalled somewhat after the No. 74 was crashed out of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway event. But with two rounds left in the Championship there is still a lot to play for.

“For us, it’s a big priority to deliver as many points as we can to help Compass360R’s partner Honda in this Manufacturer Championship,” said Burrows. “So we are hoping to be on the podium again and if not, the biggest thing is to bring as many points as we can out of this weekend. We’ve seen a lot of ups and downs with this championship and you never know how it is going to play out so it’s up to us to maximize these last two events.”
