Qualifying saw last years WCC Rotax Junior Champion Coltin McCaughan (CKN/TonyKart) post the fastest time, nipping Bryce Choquer (BBR/Kosmic) by a mere five-thousandths of a second for the pole-position.
A early scrap in the prefinal forced Choquer to work his way back to the front, but once he found himself on the rear bumper of McCaughan he made quick work of the Alberta native to take the lead and heat win.
With corner one mere meters from the start line, McCaughan executed the perfect start to beat Choquer to the first corner of the Final. But Choquer fired back at the opposite end of the track and resumed the lead before the lap was complete.
A great race for third broke out behind the two leaders as Skylar Dunning (KGK/TonyKart), the 2013 WCC Rotax Senior Champion, battled hard with Garret Britton (K&M/Birel) and John Buzza (KGK/TonyKart).
But the race was all Choquers as he would cruise to take the first race of the weekend. Dunning was able to part himself from the group and ultimately track down McCaughan to take second while McCaughan settled for third. A broken throttle cable ended Britton’s race early, taking away a top-five while Buzza spun on the final lap. Kyle Shields (Karting Canada/CRG) rebounded from a tough prefinal to finish fourth while Tristan Merke (TonyKart) completed the top-five.
