Closing out the 2013 season, the United States Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA regional program hosted rounds nine and ten of the year to settle the score in the championship chases. The event served as a tune-up event for the Rotax Pan-American Challenge event the following weekend, with many of the SKUSA drivers getting in one last event before setting up to compete at the SuperNationals XVII in Las Vegas next month.

Wagner's 42.564-second was best with championship leader Ryan Kinnear third. Wagner held the top spot through the opening heat race, with Kinnear moving up to second ahead of Finley. He looked to have the win in heat two, before Kinnear stole the top spot on the final circuit. Wagner ended up second with Garrett Boone advancing up to third. The top three put on a show in the 16-lap main event, with all three taking a turn at the point under wet conditions on dry tires. Kinnear led early before Boone took the top spot for the first time on the day. They continued to battle with Wagner taking over the lead with two laps remaining, and holding to score his first series victory of the season. Boone would hold second with Kinnear in third. Miguel Lopez was fourth with Stephen Lamana fifth.

Lopez gained speed overnight to end the session on top of the time sheets. Wagner was nine thousandths off in second, with Boone, Finely and Luke Shanahan completing the fast five. The top two went unchanged with Lopez taking the win over Wagner as Kinnear jumped from sixth on the grid to third after 10 laps. Kinnear continued his march to the front in heat two, advancing to the lead by lap four and driving to the race win over Lopez.

Heat two saw 2013 US Rotax Grand Nationals champion Michael d'Orlando come through for the win. Half the field however would be caught up in a lap two wreck, putting d'Orlando, Parker Chase, Luis Pena and others on the sidelines.

Sunday began similar to the previous day, with one driver out front through the first half of the action. Parker Chase set the pace through qualifying and heat one, before Illinois driver David Malukas stepped up to steal the top spot in heat two.

New York driver Nicholas d'Orlando was second with Jak Crawford in third, dropping Tavella to fourth in the final order. Tavella moved back to the top of the order on Sunday, earning first place in qualifying and both heat races.
