SKUSA SuperNationals: Fusco wins TaG Cadet thriller and Jagger Jones is champion


At the start of the final pole sitter Michael d’Orlando held onto the lead, but would be passed by Guiseppe Fusco, Jagger Jones, and Jack Doohan on the opening lap. On lap five Jones made a late breaking pass in turn five and Doohan followed suit to move into second. The lead for Jones was short lived as Doohan took the point the following lap.

The top three began to build a gap on the rest of the field, but the battle for fourth was insensifying with five drivers in contention. Jak Crawford who started 11th moved into fourth and started to gap the goup. d’Orlando who was in the championship fight with Jones made a small mistake on lap ten making contact with the outside barrier in turn two and ending his race.

Sam Mayer was comfortably in fifth position with two laps to go until he also made a mistake hitting the outside barrier in turn four. He would be able to continue, but fell to 9th position.

On the final lap the lead trio went into turn two three wide with Fusco on the inside, Doohan in the middle, and Jones on the outside. Fusco came out with the lead and the best momentum, which allowed him to comfortably take the win over Doohan and Jones. Jak Crawaford and Jonny Edgar rounded out the top five.

It was a tough race for the Canadians as Lachlan DeFrancesco finished the race in 26th and first of the Canadians. Michael and Nicholas d’Orlando as well as Matthew Marrocco all did not finish the main event.
