Highlights and results
In the 50cc class which includes riders from 4 to 8 years of age #18 Jonathon Aguon and #20 Jace Calvo immediatly went to war with each other for the lead.

At the finish of the first of the two heats it was the #20 of Jace Calvo taking the win with Aguon in second.

In heat two a fired up Jonathan Aguon blasted out from the starting gates and like a chain saw cut his way straight up into the lead where he dominated to take the win after early challenger Jace Calvo had his seat fall off his machine. This gave the overall round win to the #18 of Jonathan Aguon with Jace Calvo still managing to take second. Third was #10 Jerisha Guzman with #109 Leo Limtiaco taking fourth.
