Event Coverage: Ignite Race #8 & 9 Recap


Ignite Masters Start

Ignite Junior Winner – Spike Kohlbecker


This weekend featured Gateway Kartplex’s first ever double feature race night! This decision was made to accommodate our previously rained out event.

Kid Kart Honda featured some of the closest racing that we’ve seen all year! In the first feature, Race Beckman was able to achieve his first career win! Our points leader, Austin Todtenhaupt finished 0.7 seconds behind. In the second feature it was Austin Todtenhaupt who took the victory with a gigantic margin of 19.9 seconds over the red #99 of Lane Mayer, a good enough result to clinch the points championship with two races to spare!

After two heat wins, Reid Sweeney would take the pole for the first Ignite Rookie feature and never look back. It was Cameron Myers and Dane Sensel following close behind within a second of Sweeney. In the second feature, Sensel was able to set the quick lap in qualifying with Sweeney starting on the outside pole. Sensel would hold on for the feature win with a margin of 0.4 seconds over Sweeney.

The 2-cycle ace, Spike Kohlbecker dominated both Ignite Junior features with Evan Stamer and Davis Worley finishing second and third respectively.

In Ignite Senior, our points leaders traded off wins between both features. In the first feature, Colten Dudici was able to get the jump on the start and take the lead into turn 1. From there he led flag to flag and took the win in the first feature. In the second race it was the same story until Dudici made a late race mistake which would hand the top spot to Ryan Bettenhausen, who took the victory 3 laps later. This would allow Bettenhausen to hold onto his points lead with 2 races to go.

Newcomer, Blaine Finnegan took both Ignite Masters feature victories with standout performances by Royce Payton and Micah Floretta grabbing podiums and showing speed all night!
