Racing action once again took place at GSR Kartway on Monday, Aug. 16. The date was added to the schedule because of the rainouts earlier in the season.
Max Oreskovich jumped out to the quick lead and led the first three laps of the Rookie Box Stock feature. Oreskovich spun on lap four and retired to the pits. This gave the lead to Matthew Radtke on the restart with Eugene Gregorich, Jayden Schmidt, Jeffery Teske and Samantha Verhagen following. Elly Arndt joined the top five on lap five and moved to fourth two laps later. It was all Radtke the rest of the way as he took the win.
In the Box Stock feature Lewis Jepson grabbed the early lead over Gabe McCarty, Noah Olson, Konnor Wilinski and Dakota Kallas. Jepson and McCarty pulled out to a slight lead over the next couple laps, only to have Wilinski start to gain ground shortly after that. McCarty took the lead on lap seven and led until several cautions late in the race slowed the action. When the checkered flag finally flew, it was McCarty taking the win followed by Wilinski, Jacy Schmidt, Zachery Nelson and Kallas.
Kyle Raddant took the early lead over Garret Strachota, Jordan Bartz, Rebecca Schertz and Matt Rohde in the Controlled Stock feature. Cody Chipman joined the top five on lap four, about the same time Bartz began pressuring Strachota for second. On lap nine, while racing side by side with Bartz, Strachota spun, bringing out the caution. Strachota was ruled the cause of the caution and sent to the back. After the restart, Rohloff led the rest of the way to cruise to the win.
Lucas Lamberies led the first two laps of the Junior II feature before giving up the lead to Wyatt Blashe. Blashe began to pull away, with Lamberies, Kobe Schreiber, Taylor Arndt and Pierce Kauth following. A couple of cautions slowed the action late in the race, but it didn’t slow Blashe who raced to the win.
The Junior III feature was plagued with cautions with several of them being caused by go-kart drivers who were running in the top five at the time of the cautions. When all was said and done, Brandon Grendzinksi led all 15 laps to take the win. He was followed by Hunter Parsons, Brock Saunders, Carter Kauth and Cody Schroeder.
Dale Alger led all 15 laps of the Animal Pro feature and cruised to the win over Cami Alger.
In the Lawnmower feature Troy Miller took control of the race early leaving Andy Mares, Aaron Mares, Todd Schertz and Tom Tellock in pursuit. Late in the race Aaron Mares began pressuring Andy Mares for the second spot when disaster struck Miller, as his lawnmower developed mechanical problems forcing him to retire from the race and give up the lead. This gave the lead and the win to Andy Mares.
