In the previous event at Sebring International Raceway, championship points leader Tyler Gonzalez (Copeland Motorsports) extended his lead by sweeping the top step of the podium in both races. Jordan RickSegrini (BSI Racing) and Gresham Wagner (TechSport Racing) each claimed a podium spot in Race 1 while Wagner and Corey Heim (Nitro Motorsports) closed out the weekend with a podium finish in Race 2.
