Krawiec takes advantage of the rainfall Sunday to win Senior ROK

Conrad Krawiec turned a decent Saturday into an excellent Sunday.

Conrad Krawiec.

Although Conrad Krawiec was in the mix on Saturday, his best finish of second had come only once in Heat 1. However, Sunday, Krawiec was clearly the driver to beat in the Senior ROK Final and he came home victorious despite the damp racing conditions.

Emma Delattre swept the heats on Saturday and started the 26-lap final on the pole, grabbing the holeshot out of turn one. Raif Shah and Krawiec trailed closely in second and third and applied pressure to Delattre right away. To Delattre’s credit, she held back two karts who appeared faster than her for 16 laps, without as much as looking over her shoulder or putting a wheel wrong.

On lap 17, however, the opening was there for Krawiec to take advantage and he did, pointing his Tony Kart to the inside and around Delattre for the lead. Although Delattre did not fade into the distance, Krawiec kept a strong gap over the Canadian to capture the win by 6-tenths of a second.

With her runner-up finish, Delattre earned the International Final ticket with Team USA because of her participation in the previous Festival in New Orleans.

Shah came home a distant third for Kaos Karting.
