WCC: Carson Vogel Confirms Mini-Max Title with Highest Points; Torgerson Sweeps Weekend
A perfect weekend in last months round in Regina, Saskatchewan meant Carson Vogel (BBR/Kosmic) entered the Chilliwack rounds as the Championship favourite, needing only to finish his races to secure the title. But Vogel had other plans in mind, and instead of running a conservative weekend to ensure he won the title, he went on attack and was ultimately rewarded with the overall championship, but also scored the most points of any driver at this year’s Western Canadian Championships.

On track, there was no stopping American driver Austin Torgerson (Ruthless/TonyKart). After dominating the first two days of racing action in Chilliwack, Torgerson once again was unstoppable in Mini-Max as he drove brilliantly to claim win number three on the weekend.
For the third straight day Vogel finished runner-up to Torgerson, meaning Vogel earned first place points in all six races at the WCC (as American’s do not score points), an unbelievable feat.
Edward Portz (BBR/Kosmic) snagged the third position on the day.
With the title to Vogel, Marco Kacic (PSL West/CRG) completes his inaugural Mini-Max season as Vice-Champion with Levi Schmidtke (CRG) finishing third overall.
As the Champion, Vogel earns a ticket to compete at the ASN Canadian National Karting Championships in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec in two weeks time.
