An incredible Final race in Micro-Max at the Cold Stone Creamery Rotax Pan American Challenge!
After an opening lap scare for leader Ugo Ugochukwu (KoeneUSA/TonyKart) resulted in him spinning out on the first corner, the youngster kept his kart pointed in the right direction and regained in seventh.
A lead group of six featured great battles between Reece Gold (TonyKart), Jak Crawford (BENIK Kart), Sebastien Montoya (Birel), Leland Honeyman (Benik), Tyler Maxson (TonyKart) and Josh Pierson (TonyKart) as Crawford and Montoya exchanged the lead often.
This battling allowed Ugochukwu to slowly catch the group of leaders as the laps wound down. Shuffling positions like cards in a deck the final two laps were a shootout.
Gold, Crawford and Ugochukwu all held the lead at one point on the final circuit, but once out front Ugochukwu held on through the final few corners to take the win. Gold grabbed the second position with a pass on Montoya in the final corner while Crawford had to settle for fourth over Maxson.
