Caddell was able to dominate the last part of the race and win by a 6.327 second margin. After starting on the front row the Graham, Washington racer took the lead by the third lap. A heated battle began between Caddell and Brad McAllister of Portland, Oregon.

Jason Saini of Forth Worth, Texas came from behind and took over the lead from Caddell and McAllister. By lap 11 Caddell took first place back. Caddell powered away to a 2.096 second lead on lap 12 and continued to open the gap to the finish on lap 31.

“It felt great to win,” said Caddell. “After I broke out I just sat back and watched the other racers fight it out behind me.” Halfway through the season Caddell is in a very strong 4th position in season points and only 4 points out of 2nd place.

“I started racing when I was 9-years-old,” said Caddell. “I started with karts and K&N Engineering was part of my life back then. I don’t remember racing without K&N products. K&N Air and Oil Filters give me a competitive edge.”

Round five and Six of the Mazda MX-5 Cup will take place June 25-27 at Burke Lakefront Airport as part of the Grand Prix of Cleveland, Ohio.
