Mardan sneaks in and sweeps Saturday in X30 Master
Laurentiu Mardan -- running out of the KartCraft pit -- has earned his first ever Pro Tour victory, coming moments ago in X30 Master.
Mardan had the lead taken away multiple times throughout the race but wanted nothing to do with following, as he would almost immediately pass back to the lead the next chance he had.
On the penultimate lap, Derek Wang had made the pass into the back hairpin, but Mardan would snatch the lead back up as they took the white flag. Typically we see drivers sit in second on the final lap so they can get the draft and use it to slingshot to the win -- but Mardan didn't care much for that strategy.
Mardan's strategy paid off as he was able to gap Wang just enough that the FA Kart driver could not get the draft of Mardan's Kosmic.
Two Compkarts found themselves in third and fourth with Jonathan Silva and Travis Irving, both out of the Formula Works camp. Irving climbed 19 positions to earn that spot, followed by Scott Roberts in fifth.
