Karam’s dominance went basically unchallenged, with Hawksworth unable to maintain the pace despite starting on the front row, settling in to third position before his meeting with the wall. Martin Scuncio had yet another solid run, coming home behind Karam in second place. Connor De Phillippi was a huge beneficiary of Hawksworth’s crash, not only inheriting third place in the race but also assuming the championship lead by four points over Hawksworth, 139-135. Petri Suvanto, last year’s USF2000 Champion, finished the race in fourth position, while Gabby Chaves completed the top five.
Karam’s teammate Zach Veach finished in sixth, Team Viso Venezuela teammates Bruno Palli and Diego Ferreira were seventh and eighth, respectively, while Zach Meyer and Ashley Freiberg rounded out the top ten. Hawksworth was credited with 15th, a disappointing last place finish after a strong start to the season.
De Phillippi will take the points lead into the three-race Canadian swing, with the next stop on the Streets of Toronto on July 8.
