ELON, N.C. — Despite almost a month hiatus from racing action, Jacob Borst is now prepared to make his second start in Southeast Limited Late Model Junior Elite Series at Greenville-Pickens Speedway this weekend, piloting the No. 25 Central Carolina Realty Pros machine.

Fresh from a second place finish and a pole award in the Greenville Meltdown last month, which marked the opening event for the Southeast Limited Late Model Series, Borst is heading back to the circuit with even higher expectations.
Having now a complete feature and additional practice laps under his belt, the former quarter midget standout is holding aspirations to become just the second victor in the inaugural season for the Southeast Limited Late Models newest division, which focuses on providing an affordable full-sized traveling late model series for drivers aged 10 to 15.
“It has been a long month not racing,” Borst said. “But I can’t wait to get back on the track. We’ve been working hard during the break. I really would like to deliver a win this weekend. That is going to be the main focus.”
Along with searching for his maiden late model win, this weekend will also be the debut between Borst and his newest partner, Central Carolina Realty Pros, which is a real estate service, located in Elon, N.C., that strives to deliver assistance to those looking to purchase or sell their homes.
Borst will also showcase his Jet-Hot High Performance Coatings and Nichols Dodge Chrysler Jeep colors at the ‘Historic Half-Mile’ in South Carolina this weekend.
“I am looking forward to forming a new relationship with Central Carolina Realty Pros,” Borst explained. “Ben [Whitt, owner] has been extremely grateful and I look forward to representing his company well this season. Of course, I also have to give thanks to Jet-Hot High Performance Coatings and Nichols Dodge Chrysler Jeep for their support, as well.”
“I couldn’t do what I love without all these great partners.”
Making the three hour tow to the racetrack, Borst will first contest in an open practice session on Friday for the Southeast Limited Late Model Series — all three divisions will be in attendance. Testing is scheduled to run from 8:00 a.m. Eastern until 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
On Saturday, spectator gates open at 4 p.m. Eastern, with racing action being slated to start at 7 p.m. Eastern. Visit www.GreenvillePickens.com  for more information on this weekend’s schedule.

Jacob Borst from Elon, North Carolina is a developing racer competing in the Southeast Limited Late Model Junior Elite Series in the No. 25 Nichols Dodge Chrysler Jeep machine.
Borst, 12, is a middle school student that has made his mark across various platforms in motorsports, starting at just four-years-old.
Under direction from his father Justin Borst, the hotshoe Jacob has recorded various victories in go-karts, quarter midgets and even the competitive Allison Legacy Race Series.
