It was continued improvement for the Northeastern driver, Chloe Chambers (Mike Doty / Kosmic Kart), throughout the weekend. From her fourth place qualifying effort all the way to the win on Sunday, the Mike Doty Racing driver put in the work to earn the win on the final lap of the 18-lap feature.

In typical 100cc fashion, the race from start to finish was back and forth. Chambers and William Cox (Team Felon / Tony Kart) swapped the lead on multiple occasions. On the final lap, the two went into the turn four hairpin side by side, making contact, which resulted in Chambers to the lead and Cox back to a distant third. Chambers would hold on over Adam Maxwell on track as the checkered flags flew.

Maxwell was in the fight throughout the main event, but never could get himself close enough to interrupt the top two position. A penalty was handed down in post-race tech for a pushed in front bumper, knocking the Midwestern driver back down to third, promoting Cox to second.

Santiago Biagi (AM Racing / Exprit) and Marcos Telle (JC Motorsport / Tony Kart) finalized the top five.
