(Robersonville, NC) Thomas Burbage out of Washington, NC sat on the pole for the 4th time in the 2017 Race Season with a time of 15.165 at East Carolina Motor Speedway (ECMS) located in Robersonville, NC. Tyler Matthews clocked in 2nd with a time of 15.275 followed by Wesley Johnson in 3rd with a 15.326.

The 50 Lap feature produced great racing throughout the field by at the front it was the Thomas Burbage show. In the early stages of the race Burbage has to fend off challenges from Tyler Matthews, but at around lap 8 suspension problems plagued the #63 of Matthews causing him to stop on the backstretch and bring out the first yellow of the race. Matthews would go on to lose 2 laps after repairs.

After the race was back underway Burbage would pull away from Wesley Johnson and Jeff Shifflet. Tyler Matthews had motor issues after getting back on track after his early incident which ultimately resulted in a last place finish. The race would continue to run green until Lap 30 when the #33 of Ryan Haddock spun through the grass off turn 4.

The field was reset with just 20 laps to go, and from there Burbage would leave the field in dominating fashion while there was tons of hard racing behind him. Burbage would go on to claim his 2nd win of the season by leading all 50 laps of the event.
