Colorado native Zak Maytum narrowly beat out Canadians Alex Charleson and Kevin Reimer to clench his third Maryhill Festival of Speed title.
It was an epic battle, with the lead changing multiple times over the length of the track. Alex Charleson led out of Cowzers Corner but left just enough space on the inside of the final corner for Zak to sneak through.
But it was in the short section of track between the final corner and the finish line where the action really happened, as Alex threatened to re-overtake Zak, and the two jostled and bumped shoulders. Check this video of the finish.
