Prema Powerteam driver Juan Manuel Correa had a bad start, causing a back-up of karts behind him, including Gary Carlton. Jeff Kingsley got away from the pack with Correa in second and Carlton able to earn the third spot: Rubens Barrichello showed promise early, but did not have the pace to keep a much faster Carlton behind him as the Formula K driver was finally able to get back all of the spots he lost early.

Ryan Norberg controlled the final from lap seven, when he stole the lead from Arthur Leist, on to take the win. During the move of Norberg, Leist slipped to third allowing Garrison to move into second.
