Enjoying his trip to the east to compete against some of the best Rotax Junior drivers in the country, Parker Thompson (SH Karting/TonyKart) has been on a roll this weekend. After earning the pole-position, and winning the pre-final, Thompson knew that he still couldn’t take anything for granted.
Getting the holeshot into turn one was Thompson, but it didn’t take long for Olivier Bedard (SRA Karting/Birel) to take a shot at lead, and he took it entering corner five. The duo pulled a slight gap early over Bedard’s teammate Jeffery Kingsley (SRA Karting/Birel), while Zachary Claman Demelo was battling his way to the front after being forced to start deep in the pre-final. A nifty move near the halfway mark entering corner one put Thompson back on top, as Demelo made quick use of Kingsley to join to front two.
From there, the trio seemed so equally matched, that nobody could make a move. Thompson would score the win just ahead of Bedard, while Demelo, who faded slightly at the end took the final podium spot.
