” Final 2, A lot of people still talk about this. The opening laps were very¬†spectacular! not for Hanssen tough. It looked like he had a target on his back and got smashed around like it was the final lap. ” I had another good start and got in the lead about halfway lap 1 sera made an agressive move on me. Both losing the lead to Kyle Ensby who later won the race. Next corner number 97 seen his chance and tried to gain some points on me and gave me a little push. wich almost put me off the track. I dropped back to 7th, had my steering bend a little but no excuses the gokart felt still good but I had to push a little harder. I got up to 4th this race and stayed there.
