Italkart Wins Stars Finale and Clinches Championship!

In the ICA class, Vorrath ran away with the race by laying down a dominating performance that showed a 7.872-second cushion at the checker.  Vorrath teamed with Italkart stablemate Colby Jenn to push through on the outside but it was Helmut Sanden�s aggressive inside move that caused a three-wide spread through the apex of the corner. Contact with another unidentified driver put Miller in the marbles and his engine well below the powerband. Despite working the carb needles to revive the revs, he watched as the entire field streamed by. Miller would begin his charge from 34th.

Taking over the lead for the first couple circuits was Sanden (Mach 1), before Vorrath grabbed control for good. While Vorrath was streaking away, Miller was working his way to the front, blasting by many drivers under braking into the track�s tight corners.

By the time the checkers flew, Miller had moved himself into third position with Sanden holding second after a ferocious mid-race battle with Orlado Racing teammate Lorenzo Mandarino (Mach 1). The team drivers had much different set-ups and Sanden was much stronger at the finish. With the fight going on behind him, Vorrath put an exclamation point on the ICA championship with a 7.872 second win.  Unfortunately, Tyler Dueck was involved in an incident on the fifth lap where he was sidelined.  Colby Jenn suffered a similar fate after being taken out on lap two.  Jenn (Italkart/Parilla) had a great shot at a podium finish as he had been fast all weekend.  (Courtesy of EKN)
