Burrows fast at Watkins Glen; Another fast qualifying effort from defending champ

Watkins Glen, NY (4 July, 2008)-- Adam Burrows will start round five of the 2008 Grand-Am KONI Challenge season from third on the ST Class grid at Watkins Glen after the 2007 KONI Champ set a fast lap time 2:11.758-seconds in the No. 74 Fischer Skis/Compass360 Racing Acura TSX he will share with fellow Champ Trevor Hopwood in Saturday's Glen 200 as part of the IndyCar Series Camping World Grand Prix at the Glen. The duo started the 2007 Watkins Glen event from third on the grid, and will hope to improve on the 6th place result they took last year.

"The car was just about perfect today, and my hats off to the Compass360 guys," said Burrows, who qualified second in the previous KONI Challenge race at Mid-Ohio. "I'm pretty happy to be up front again for the start tomorrow. There are a lot of good guys up there, so hopefully we can get off to a clean start. It's going to be interesting racing with the GS guys again but I love racing on this track, and Trevor is also really good here. I don't think anyone really will have anything for the turbocharged cars, but we will still go for everything we can get tomorrow."
