BURBAGE SHAKES THE BAD LUCK – RETURNS TO VICTORY LANE AT EAST CAROLINA

By: Justin Kern

Robersonville, NC – “Man that was one of the most fun I have had in a race in a long time,” an excited Thomas Burbage said in victory lane the past weekend at East Carolina Motor Speedway. Burbage had shown speed all afternoon and it transferred to both qualifying and race time. Despite having minor scoring issues, that were fixed before race time, Burbage tied for the pole position with points leader Brenden Queen with a time 15.44 seconds. Burbage would have to settle for the outside pole after race control confirmed per track rules the “advantage” would go to the diver who clocked their lap first.

After an intense battle for the lead, Burbage was able to get around Queen using what a lot of people at East Carolina have a hard time using – the high line! “It’s hard to pass on the outside here,” Burbage also said in victory lane. “Specially with Brenden on the inside of you. He’s a good driver and he will certainly make you work for it. I’m just so happy to be out of this drought.” Things seemed to get off to a rocky start quite literally when flagman Terry Bullock did not like the original start, waiving it off calling for take two. There was however a large delay in the caution lights as the field set off into one causing the middle of the pack to stack up. Terry Carroll of Williamsburg, Va got the worst end of that deal and ended up nose first into the outside wall. His night was over before it even had a chance to get started.

Michael Fose Sweeps East Carolina – Catapults To Top Spot in North Carolina Points

By: Justin Kern

Robersonville, NC – With just about a month left to go in the NWAAS National and State title race, wins are a must and are coming at a premium. Fose, 21 of Jacksonville, North Carolina, put on a clinic two weekends ago at East Carolina Motor Speedway in not only his first Late Model Stock career win but his very first twin sweep. A track that has proven to be a good track for Fose and his career as he earned his first Limited Late Model win back in 2013

Fose paced the field earlier in the afternoon with a time of 15.451 to grab the pole position for race number one. There was no looking back for Fose after the drop of the green flag. Ten laps into race number one and Fose had opened up a solid eight-car lead over Thomas Burbage, Louis White, Tyler Matthews and Brenden Queen.
