In almost an exact replica of 2018, Jenson Altzman (Ruthless Karting / OTK) navigated his way into the lead on the final lap of 100cc Senior to take the win for Ruthless Karting.
For the first 19.5 laps, Jake Drew (Formula Works / Compkart), Billy Musgrave (Mad Old Nut/Mad Croc), and Altzman ran nose to tail, each one looking for the other to make a mistake. As they hit the final lap, Musgrave moved to the outside of the long straight while Drew defended the lower line. Altzman lined up with Musgrave as the two formed a draft on the outside that had Musgrave briefly in the lead. Drew went deep into turn eight to hold his position, but pushed himself and Musgrave wide, allowing Altzman a path underneath into the lead.
With Drew holding his position in second, the trio drove the remainder of the final lap in that order. Atzman backs up his win from a year ago ahead of a disappointed Drew and Musgrave. Austin Osborne (Ironrock / Tony Kart) moved up four positions to fourth just ahead of Henry Falls-Hand MMK / OTK).
