Josh Plant


WHEEL, Tenn. - Oct. 1. Terry English of Benton, Ky. piloted his Burr Motorsports Barry Wright race car to a $3000 victory Saturday at Duck River Speedway's Tennessee Super Series (TSS) Finale, holding off a mid-race charge from, Todd Morrow, Chuck Proctor and Daniel Miller.


English would set the pace early by setting quick time, amongst the 36 Late Model drivers signed in for the mini-series finale. Charlotte, Tenn.’s Chuck Proctor qualified alify second and the two led the charge for the 40-lap event.


The first few laps of the race was plagued with cautions, coming within the first five laps for cars getting together and spinning on three separate restarts, but English never faltered. During the mid-part of the race Daniel Miller was running the high side of the track, getting as high as second place and challenging English for the lead, but English would close the door on Miller, who faded back to the fourth spot. English would be too much for Proctor and Morrow to get by and English went on to lead the entire 40 laps and get the $3000 victory, followed by Morrow, Proctor, Miller and Burroughs in the top five.


Lynchburg, Tenn.’s Miller entered the TSS finale with a 58-point lead over Corey Posey of Petersburg, Tenn. The stage was set and all Miller had to do in order to be crowned the 2011 TSS champion was attempt to qualify and run a heat race. Miller wrapped up the TSS points title for the night by going out and qualifying fourth amongst the 36-car field.


English jumped from the fourth position in the standings to second after winning Saturday's TSS final. The remaining top 10 in points go as followed: Corey Posey, Mark Fields, Tony Morris, Scott Cook, Tanner English, David Seibers, David Brannon and Anthony Burroughs. Drivers had to compete in seven of the eight scheduled TSS events in order to be eligible for the points reward. Eight of the top 10 drivers competed in all eight scheduled events.
