The 2014 Kart season at Willamette Speedway would come to a close on Friday September 19th. With most of the championships already decided there were a few still up in the air. The evening would once again put on some great racing action.

Jayden Trupp would continue his dominant ways in the Pee Wee division after collecting his ninth main event win in 2014. Trupp would also become the 2014 champion in the class after an extremely successful campaign in the Dave Foote Motorsports/Nexdor Tobacco & More/Trupp Family Race Team #72 QRC.

Jayden Trupp’s sister, Lydia who is also from Coos Bay, would finish in second in her Dave Foote Motorsports/Nexdor Tobacco & More/Trupp Family Race Team #722 QRC while third Forest Grove’s Bradyn Brookshire was third in his Brookshire Racing #ZER0 QRC.

Carter Patterson of Albany was once again in victory lane in the 5HP Open division. It would be the seventh win of the campaign for Patterson and the James Gang Pizza/Clayton’s Cornwell Tools/Rebecca’s Barber Shop/King Office Equipment #47 QRC. Patterson also would win the championship in the division.

In the other 5HP class, the 5HP Intermediate, Kylee Day of Vancouver, Washington would score her first ever victory after only a handful of starts in her young career. Day, in her Discount Race Car Parts/Terry’s Drain Service #10D QRC, is one of the only drivers to defeat Cottage Grove’s Austin Sause all year long. Speaking of Austin Sause the pilot of the Wheeless Trailer Sales/Cooper’s Pest Control/Central Coast Vacuum/Umpqua Survival #7 QRC would be declared the champion.

Austin Sause finished the main event in second place while the James Gang Pizza/Clayton’s Cornwell Tools/Rebecca’s Barber Shop/King Office Equipment #26 QRC of Makayla Patterson from Albany was third.

The 125cc division was one of the close point battles headed into the final leg. McKenzie Lockhart of Albany, in only her first year in Karts, would end up the victory in her Linn-Benton Insurance/James Gang Pizza/A.A. Towing #29 QRC. Conner Hanson of Creswell would win the point championship after Lebanon’s Kyle Roles, in his Knothole Market/Big Sky Landscaping/Clayton's Cornwell Tools/Scofield's Karts & Parts #02 QRC, would experience problems during the course of the night.

Towing #47 QRC in fourth while fifth was Tyler Pagel of Brightwood in his Pagel Trucking/Begg’s Tires & Wheel/Pagel Towing/C.A.’s Lift Truck Service #27 QRC.

In 250cc competition Kyle Cormican of Vancouver, Washington win his fourth race of the season in his Schram Brothers Excavating/RSR Racercraft/Xtreme Motorsports/James Gang Pizza #113 RFC.
