World Speed Motorsports and Joseph Burton-Harris partner-up for the Formula Car Challenge Triple Crown, starting this weekend at Portland International Raceway. Sponsored by Build CSQ, this first event will be exciting for everyone to see this athlete transition to the next level of his chosen sport.
Practice Day 1 has ended well with Joseph’s first day in the car a combination of excitement at being at yet another new track in Portland, Oregon. The track is surrounded in stunning trees, manicured lawns and filled with flat fast twisty corners. Even though he is still getting to know the car his times were the fastest on track with a lot more time available to find in both himself and in the tire.
Major learning curve today. It is great to be a part of a great team with World Speed Motorsports. Kevin, Skylar and Telo have made me feel very welcome and prepared a beautiful car for me today. More power, more grip with great aero and rocker package, more tire all means I have to learn quickly how to adapt all my previous experience from karts to formula mazda. It was a strong day but I am looking forward to tomorrow and more laps. ” Joseph Burton-Harris Read More

BRASELTON, Ga. (March 22, 2015) – A steady downpour throughout the day provided a mixed bag for Sunday’s SCCA Southeast Conference Majors Tour at Road Atlanta, Round Eight of 12 on the season. A number of drivers saw their fortunes reversed, either positively or negatively, from Saturday’s action during Sunday’s 20-lap races.
Group 8: Conner Kearby (No. 56 K-Hill Motorsports Swift 016/Mazda) repeated in Formula Atlantic after spending the early part of the race chasing his father, Gaston Kearby (No. 69 K-Hill Motorsports Swift 016/Mazda). The elder Kearby was still in front on lap 13 when suddenly his machine failed to accelerate out of a corner, done for the day. From there, Conner was alone on the lead to the finish line.
Joseph Burton-Harris’ No. 132 Formula Mazda finished an impressive second overall, the only other car on Kearby’s lead lap. The win capped a sweep of the weekend in class for Burton-Harris. The Southeast Conference returns to action April 17-19 at VIRginia International Raceway for rounds nine and 10 on the season.

AVONDALE, La. (March 8, 2015) – The SCCA U.S. Majors Tour at NOLA Motorsports Park is officially a wrap, following the second day of competition. The race weekend served as Rounds Five and Six of the South-eastern Conference campaign, and was the opening weekend for the Mid-States Conference.
Seven race groups took to the 2.75-mile, 16-turn circuit just south of New Orleans for the second annual Majors race weekend in as many years. Once again, the Majors lived up to its billing by bringing the country’s best amateur race car driver to the best race tracks in America. NOLA Motorsports Park is slated to host its first professional auto race later this year, and has already hosted professional motorcycle racing.
Here is a summary of the day’s action:
Run Group Three: Joseph Burton Harris, of Cresson, Texas, went 2-0 at NOLA Motorsports Park, after beating a field of seven other Formula Mazda’s on Sunday. Burton-Harris went toe-to-toe with multi-time National Champion Darryl Wills and came out on top as a result of patience.
As the laps wound down in the 17-lap race, Burton-Harris got a good run off Turn 17. He and Wills were side-by-side as they approached Turn One. Burton-Harris had the inside line for the corner but Wills made his car stick on the outside line. It wasn’t until the leaders got to Turn Four that Burton-Harris was able to finish his pass.
Also scoring two wins on the weekend were Kirk Kindsfater (Prototype 1, No. 32 Ortho Center Rockies/K&N/Arms Up Speads RS11), of Eaton, Colorado. Michael Crowe (Formula 1000, No. 88 Applied Oxidation Van Diemen F1000), of Jamestown, Kentucky, and Paul Schneider (Formula Enterprises, No. 73 Performance MotorCars of Charlotte Formula Enterprises), of Charlotte, North Carolina, also swept the weekend, unopposed.
