WCC: Friday Victory for Carson Vogel in Mini-Max
It started off looking like a one-horse race in Mini-Max as Marco Kacic (CRG West/CRG) blistered off a lap time in Qualifying nearly two and a half tenths quicker than his closest competition.
But when it came to racing, everything changed. Kacic was pressured early by Griffin Dowler (Apollo/TonyKart) in the prefinal. The two would eventually welcome Carson Vogel (BBR/Kosmic) to the lead pack, but Kacic held on ahead of Dowler and Vogel.
Vogel helped pushed Kacic to the lead at the start of the Final with the front three again breaking away from the competition. Angelia Amorim (TonyKart) led that second pack in the early stages ahead of Levi Schmidtke (CRG) and Wyatt Gulash (K&M/Birel).
Vogel worked by Kacic by lap five as the two had broke away Dowler to settle the race on their own. However, Kacic was unable to setup a pass, settling for second at the line as Vogel earned round one. Dowler held to complete the podium ahead of Schmidtke and Amorim.
