TAMPA, FL. - Chase Burda notched his first career victory in the Nitro Lubricants Jr. Late Model eSports NEXT Series Presented by Joe's Racing Products by holding off Teddy Kottschade and Richard Morris in the Closing laps Tuesday Evening. In a race mostly led by Jaiden Reyna, who led 52 of the 75 completed laps, it was Burda's consistency on restarts that propelled him to the lead through multiple yellow flags and eventually taking the checkered flag for the victory. Rounding out the top five were Teddy Kottschade 2nd, Richard Morris 3rd, Jeffery Groff 4th, and Dylan Baptista 5th.
"It was a great run for us," Burda said of the race. "I honestly did expect a win out of here but I just had consistent lap times and I was just trying to stay clean and get to the front."
The other award winners include Richard Morris who grabbed the Victory Lane Design Hard Charger award and Dylan Baptista who received the Victory Custom Trailers Fast Qualifier, the Home Smiles Fastest Race Lap and the Race Face Tel-Med Halfway Challenge awards. Baptista continues to lead the points over Richard Morris and Chase Burda who are both 16 points back as they head into Richmond Raceway on June 9th and you can watch it live at 6:30 PM EST on the Jr. Late Model Esports Twitch channel.
