All eight classes ran a full schedule of laps with not one single red flag. A total of 133 drivers took to the track. A total of 248 entries have been taken as four-cycle classes get ready to go on Sunday. The weather held despite a few drops of rain at mid day. Cloud cover did play a factor as temperatures dropped in the early finals only to rise quickly for the last few classes.

Junior Medium
Cory Cacciavillani held off a hard charging Scotty Nagel to keep the top spot. Korolev held point from the start and pulled a gap as Caciavillani and Nagel battled. Once past into the lead Nagel pulled a gap on Cacciavillani as Korolev faded. In the closing laps Cacciavillani would make his move and slip by to take the top spot at the line. Grant Quinlan put in a strong performance in fourth with Michael Taibi rounding out your top five.

Rotax DD2
Darren White pulled a huge gap in the final taking an 8.3 second lead to victory. Behind White a trio of drivers battled hard, Enrico Menotti pulled off with mechanical leaving Luciano and France to battle for second. At the finish it was White, Luciano, France, Woyslaw and Simon.

Cadet
The youngest class on track was a seven donnybrook, with karting's newest drivers doing a great job. In the end Taylor Wassink would best the field followed by Ryley Hulme just a tenth behind. Further back saw Joshua Conquer, grandson of karting legend George Conquer, followed by Skyler Bailey and Ciarra Collison another next generation karter.

Rotax Micro Max
A five kart pack took the green flag with Ryan Mohan topping Devlin DeFrancesco, Clay VanEerd, Taegen Poles and Dylan Brady.

Rotax Mini Max
Nine drivers made the start in the next step of the Rotax ladder. A great battle at the start had pole sitter Grant Quinlan take the hole shot followed in hot pursuit by Trevor Rancier making his Tony Kart debut with GreenSpeed. Quinlan began to pull out a lead at the half way point as Rancier held off rookie Ayrton Drosi. In the end it was Qunilan, Rancier, Drosi, Nicholas Ledson and Braydon.

Rotax Junior Max
A full field of 32 drivers jumped at the green flag. Prefinal winner Austin Milwain got beat to the first corner by pole winner Spencer Todd. Todd quickly pulled a gap and never looked back. Milwain would pace Todd but couldn’t close the gap. Deeper in the field a number of drivers made huge moves through the field. Garett Grist charged from 14th spot after a prefinal spin left him deep in the field. With five to go, Grist was able to hunt down third place Reid Arnold and Jeffery May. In the next lap, Grist was able to push past Arnold with May in tow. At the stripe it was Todd, Milwain, Grist, Arnold and May. Hard charges also came from Cameron Morrison who went from 20th to eighth and Corey Cacciavillani who drove from 29th to 13th.

Rotax Senior Max
Senior Max was one of the most anticipated races of the day. Stefano Romano took the lead coming out of one with Michael Glaze, Lorenzo Mandarino and Marco DiLeo in close pursuit. Inside of lap three Mandarino retired with a broken chain allowing DiLeo to pressure Glaze. Romano would slide on some oil and DiLeo pounced, pushing past Glaze and Romano to take the lead with still half the circuits to go. In the closing laps DiLeo would have to hold off a hard charging Glaze to keep the win. At the waving double checkers it was DiLeo, Glaze, Romano, Johnathan Treadwell and Zach Meyer.

Marco DiLeo - "It was tough. The track conditions changed with each lap and we had tons of lap traffic in the end. I have to say the marshalls and the drivers did a great job letting us race it out. The Goodwood Kartways prepared Intrepid really did a good job for both Stefano (Romano) and I."

Rotax DD2
Darren White got the hole shot over Corey Luciano, Enrico Menotti and Matt France. A bobble by White on Lap 4 let Luciano through to the lead with Menotti pressing White hard. White took the lead back just before half way and pulled a gap on the field. Menotti retired from second with a blown engine at half distance allowing France to take the third spot. Mark Woyslaw, making his CRG debut with Mosport Karting, charged from the 13th spot to take fourth at the line. A nice top five for this DD2 rookie. At the final circuit it was White over Luciano, France, Woyslaw and Eric Simon.

White - "My Tony Kart was really hooked and really came in when the sun came out."

ICC Shifter
The final group of the day, the six speed gear box karts launched full steam into corner one from a standing start. Pole sitter David Ostella had a poor start allowing Zach Meyers to grab the hole shot into corner one. Max Gamble, Joe DeMarco and Ostella stayed in hot pursuit. Before halfway, Ostella began to make his push forward. Contact with kart #6 would late become a factor. Ostella moved into second past half way but Meyers had already checked out on the field. At the end it was Meyers, followed by Ostella, Gamble, DeMarco and Kristian Jeffery. A three position penalty for avoidable contact would push Ostella back to fifth in the official results.

A full slate of four-cycle classes and some two classes take to the track for Sunday action. Watch the forums all day for updates.
