Morgan Burgess, a ninth grader at Canton High School, is currently leading the points in the tough Junior Dragster division at Skyview Drags, Tioga Center, N.Y.

Morgan has scored two wins this season and posted several other good finishes and has her sights set on her first overall point championship.

Burgess and her father, Lee, along with mom Anna, compete as a family team each Saturday morning at the area dragway. The junior division is part of the IHRA Summit Series Drag Racing championships, and some 20 junior drivers compete weekly.
