Round 6 of the Supertrack Challenge GP was Sunday night, with 14 racers showing up to display their skills that they learned throughout the season. There were two racers battling it out for the championship, Robert Hernandez and Bryce Raygor, with only 6 points separating the two. As qualifying started, both Robert and Bryce made it clear to the field that they were there to win and both posted times at the top of the board. Robert was able to edge Bryce for the pole, with a 47.243. This gave a little more breathing room for Robert since the pole gave him an extra two points towards the championship points.
As the final was rolling out, Bryce was super focused to make Robert earn that top spot and was ready to make a move for the lead as soon as one presented itself. As Robert took the green flag, Bryce was right on his back bumper and during the first couple laps, actually made Robert make a few mistakes and skid a couple corners because of the tight pressure he was putting on. Once Robert settled into the race, he began to click off some very fast laps to get a little bit of gap between Bryce. There was also great racing behind these two, about 8 seconds back, there were a train of karts from third to about seventh place, battling for every position they could.
As the checkered came out, Robert was able to take the victory and secure his point lead for the championship for the Ontario Supertrack Challenge GP. Robert ended up with 170 points, with Bryce finishing with 160, and Christopher Morales rounding out the podium for the championship with 142 points. Christopher Morales was also able to finish in the third spot during the race, with John Carroll in fourth, and Noah Stein in fifth.
It was a great season in Ontario, with some close battles all season long and a very competitive field. We look forward to seeing more of you try out the best indoor racing in the Inland Empire next season, with a whole new track layout! See you in July!
