Jeb Burton scores late model win

Jeb Burton of Halifax had plenty of reason of celebrate last weekend. Burton scored his first career Late Model Stock Car Division win, taking the top spot in a 75-lap Late Model Stock Car race last Friday night at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C.

The win came in Burton’s third race at the track.

Burton took the lead after his car made contact with the car driven by race leader Dustin Rumley as the pair battled for the lead on the final lap. Rumley’s car spun in the third turn and Burton darted past him to take the win, with Jason York of Reidsville, N.C. finishing second.

Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C., Barry Beggarly of Pelham, N.C. finished fourth and Robert Turner of Burlington, N.C. rounded out the top five finishers.
