A wreck in Heat #2 stopped the ‘Zack Pretorius Train’ in the Woltjer Racing Engines Yamaha Junior division, ending the attempt at a perfect weekend. Austin Schaff (Merlin) went on to win the second heat after Saturday sweeper Pretorius (FA Kart) was the top qualifier and opening heat race winner. Dylan Tavella (Tony Kart) earned the pole position for the main event after two runner-up finishes in the heats. Tavella was joined at the front by Sam Mayer (Merlin), who fought his way up from P5 on the grid. The two broke away after the fight for third began to heat up, taking full advantage of the scrap going on behind them. The race would eventually come down to the final lap. Tavella had learned from the earlier main event, as he made the move once again in the I-70 corner. This time, it stuck, as he held off Mayer to the line for his first Junior USPKS victory. Alex Bertagnoli (Merlin) won the fight for third over Schaff. Pretorius drove to fifth, but was penalized one position for contact, moving Sam Paley (Tecno) up one spot in the final tally.
