#21: Harrison Burton, Wood Brothers Racing, Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Mustang

Burton Finishes 31st at COTA

Harrison Burton and the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Mustang Dark Horse finished 31st in Sunday’s Echopark Automotive Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Burton started Sunday’s 68-lap race over the 20-turn road course from 29th place. An early spin dropped him to 36th place. The team made its first pit stop at Lap 10 and ended the first 15-lap Stage in 33rd place.

After a pit stop on Lap 25, Burton ended Stage Two in 32nd place.

The third and final Stage initially looked much more promising for the Motorcraft/Quick Lane team as Burton, having made his stop before the end of the previous Stage, moved into the top 20 when racing resumed following the Stage break.

Burton pitted from 27th place at Lap 42 then moved into the top 25 just past the 50-lap mark and ran there until a pit stop for fuel at Lap 58 dropped him out of the top 30. There were no caution flags in the race other than for the Stage breaks.

Next up for Burton and the Wood Brothers team is a 400-lapper next Sunday at Richmond Raceway.
