New Smyrna Speedway (FL) has always been kind to Harrison Burton. He’s scored wins during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing every year since 2014 when he first came to the Florida half-mile. But 2017 was by far the best edition of Speedweeks for the second generation driver.
Burton left New Smyrna on Saturday night as the Super Late Model champion of the 51st Annual World Series. Burton picked up two wins on his way to the title and finished no lower than sixth all week long.
“This means the world,” Burton told Speed51.com powered by JEGS in victory lane after the race. “We came down here with one goal in mind and that was to win as many races as we possibly could and win the championship. We won two races and the championship so it was really cool to come out and accomplish that goal. This is something that we’ve wanted for a long time. I’ve been coming to the World Series of Asphalt Racing for quite some time so it’s cool to be leaving with that trophy finally.”
Burton finished sixth after starting in the third position in the finale on Saturday night.
