Jeb Burton at VIR Sunday
It’s all part of the learning curve for a young racer. Jeb Burton pulled double duty this past weekend, competing in NASCAR short track racing at South Boston Speedway on Saturday night and on a specialized short track circuit Sunday at Virginia International Raceway Sunday. Burton, still only 16, is further ahead in NASCAR racing at SBS. He finished fourth in limited sportsman action at SBS, and 23rd in the Volkswagen Jetta TDI event at VIR.

Donohue reviled by competition

David Donohue left Virginia International Raceway on Saturday reviled by two of his competitors after a bruising finish to the feature race, the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Daytona Prototypes feature. Nevertheless, this controversy will likely work itself out, once cooler heads prevail. As matters stand, Donohue is having an outstanding season so far, with a win for the Brumos Porsche no. 58 entry at the season-opener Rolex 24 at Daytona, followed by a third-place podium finish at VIR Saturday.

So much for a gentlemanly finish

NASCAR now has an official relationship with the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car series, and the fans here enjoyed a rock ‘em, sock ‘em finish to the Bosch Engineering 250 Daytona Prototype series race at Virginia International Raceway Saturday.

Two-time NASCAR national champion Philip Morris, expected to return to South Boston Speedway Saturday night, has a serious burst of momentum to start the season. Morris made it 4-for-4 Saturday night, as in four wins in four starts, in NASCAR Whelen short track late model action at Motor Mile Speedway. And Morris had to go with a borrowed Ford engine from Performance Counts in Farmville in that win. Morris won from the pole, after edging Frank Deiny Jr. for the top starting spot.
