A three driver break away formed in the main event with top qualifier Spencer Conrad (Nitro Kart), Prefinal winner Garcia (KSNA / Will Power Kart), and Parker DeLong (Nitro Kart). Top position went back and forth multiple times, allowing another group of three drivers to close in on the final few laps. Conrad grabbed the lead from Garcia on the final circuit, but Garcia struck back with “a great move” and won the drag race to the line by 46 thousandths of a second over Conrad. The victory was the fourth in a row for Garcia, giving him the title outright.
