by Troy Thompson

With the Seniors having raced Saturday, Sunday was for the Cadets and Juniors at the 8th annual Arise Racing King of the Hill.

Cadet 9

A good field of 17 Cadet 9’s took the green lights and was won by Nash Ferraro with 3 wins & a third over State Champ Jackson Mitchell-Rosenauer and a rapidly improving rookie by the name of Zane Rhodes took a great third place overall in his Arrow.

Cadet 12

A massive field of 26 Cadet 12’s made for some awesome racing. Luca Nici took the win in his Ricciardo Kart over B-Sports Caleb Sumich and James Micucci-Allen having one of his best results since graduating from Cadet 9’s with a solid third place.

A small field of KA3’s put on the best race of the day. In race 2 the top 4 swapped positions consistently with Flynn Thompson taking the win. Thompson in his Exprit went on to win the meeting over Formula Ford pilot Jake Saywer and Italkart’s Chase Hoy in third.

A big, beautiful field of vintage karts put on an awesome display for the senses; the sights, sounds and smell had everyone at the fence drooling. The attention to detail by the owners is an absolute credit to them.
