HALFWAY! It was upsetting for Justin Price as he lost 2 places around turn 4 with a slight error in his racing line causes him to slide just a little too much. Cooper McClymont was hot on the heels of Christopher Jesse with only one goal on his mind, WINNING. Nick Gregory side by side with Johnathan Appleton as they shoot down the main straight, Johnathan Appleton making a crucial error around turn 1 as Nick takes 7th place from him and flies past giving him a cheeky laugh and grin. It was Dean Ferguson with an impressive 7 second gap and only increasing as he was perfecting that racing line. All the action was on Peter Appleton, Justin Price and Travis Geshwend duking it out all around the track, not one person giving an inch. COOPER MCCLYMONT taking 2nd place from Christopher Jesse around turn 8 in an incredible comeback from Cooper. Gearbox on gearbox, bumper to bumper coming into turn 1 and it was Justin Price who dive bombed the inside to gain a position over Travis Geshwend who left the door open for him.

Johnathan Appleton and Nick Gregory had their go karts pushed to the limit as they fought around the track, Nick Gregory was not giving him any openings. Flying down the main straight with one hand in the air was Dean Ferguson taking the checkered flag. Cooper McClymont zooming past to take 2nd. Christopher Jesse shaking his head as he grabbed 3rd place. There was an explosion of cheers coming from the fence line as the Peter Appleton, Justin Price and Travis Geshwend came flying down the main straight almost side by side and the checkered flag was waving, all drivers leaning forward hoping to give themselves an edge but it was Peter Appleton taking 4th place. Justin Price a fraction of a second behind him to get 5th place and Travis Geshwend with a heart breaking 6th place as he fought so hard.
