2019 FWT Miami 1: Local talent Beckham emerges in Micro ROK

An early fight gave way to a comfortable victory for Beckham.

Jacir Beckham earned his first Florida Winter Tour victory.

Newcomer to the Florida Winter Tour, Jacir Beckham took the win in Micro ROK in convincing fashion for JC Karting. The South Floridian captured the pole position on Friday, won a heat race on Saturday, and started from the top position on Sunday before taking victory by over five seconds in the 15-lap final.

Matias Orjuela (Vmotorsport / Parolin), winner of the first heat on Friday, had made for an exciting fight with Beckham in the early going, but a retirement just past halfway ended the only competition Beckham had. Enzo Vidmontienc (International Motorsports / Benik) took over the second position as he cruised all alone to the silver medal. Salim Hanna (Team Montoya / Tony Kart) gained five positions to make it to the final box on the podium ahead of Jordan Di Leo (Goodwood / Intrepid) and Karsyn Walters (Supertune USA / Tony Kart).
