The ideal scenario unfolded for Rob Logan in the Shifter Master main event. A perfect launch off the line gave the Californian a 1.5 second advantage right from the get go, which only increased as the laps wore on. In the end, Logan picked up a massive win in his 9th attempt at the getting to the top of the mountain.

Jason Faint slotted into second place on lap one and initially chipped away at the lead gap. However, as the laps wore on, the Aussie started to fade just a bit, holding back Jordon Musser (PSL Karting / Birel ART) and Ryan Kinnear (Phil Giebler Racing / Ricciardo). That helped increase Logan’s lead to over 2-seconds as the trio of Faint, Musser, and Kinnear battled hard for that second spot.

On lap 13 the dam broke, as Musser got into second in turn one. Three laps later, Kinnear did the same, demoting Faint to fourth. The two Texans then went at it for second.

Kinnear closed onto the back of the Birel ART very quickly after moving into third over Faint. On the final lap, Kinnear used the draft down the long main straightaway to close on Musser and make the pass into one. The moment also presented itself for Faint, as he too shot past Musser a turn later. Kinnear, Faint, and Musser would travel the rest of the circuit in that order to the finish line, followed by John Crow four seconds back in fifth.
