Throughout the province of Ontario, there are several young talented drivers that have caught the attention of everyone with success. One of those being Cole Burrows.
Competing in Junior Late Models, the multi-generation racer is already a multi-time champion, holding titles across the province. This past season, he added two more titles to his resume – Full Throttle Motor Speedway and Sauble Speedway.
The season featured many trips to victory lane, with Burrows’ favourite being the sweep he was able to accomplish at Sauble by winning both his qualifying heats and the feature.
Despite being successful to date, it has not come easy with the competition being tough across the province.
“The competition is strong,” he commented. “There’s a number of guys and girls that can run with me and even pass me.”
Early indications show that will only increase in 2020 with Sunset Speedway announcing that they will be adding the division to their roster. The opportunity to race close to home is something that has the 11-year-old excited.
“I think there will be a large interest in the division to race at a remarkable cutting edge track like Sunset,” he said.
While noting that a championship at Sunset Speedway is the main focus for the 2020 campaign, Burrows plans to travel around the province with appearances at Full Throttle Motor Speedway @ Grand Bend, Sauble Speedway and Full Throttle Motor Speedway @ Varney when the schedule allows.
Regardless of how the year plays out, though, Burrows is certainly already one of those drivers to watch with everybody wondering what the future holds. For that, he says one more year of Jr Late Models, and then he would like to compete in either Mini Stock or Super Stock.
“But with a bit more experience, I’d like to race a open wheel mod like my dad did,” he commented. “I would also love to race at the NASCAR level one day.”
