In an all green race, Canadian Nico Christodoulou stormed from a sixth-place start to take the checkered more than two seconds ahead of his nearest rival in the Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda Road Atlanta finale. The victory is Christodoulou's first career victory for the Velocity Racing Development driver.
"Whenever I was battling, I was able to pull away a couple car lengths, which gave us some relief," said Christodoulou. "VRD put together a great car that was able to get us the win today. I would like to thank everyone who came down to support me, I would not be here with you."
Christodoulou took the lead on Lap 2 after pole starter Bijoy Garg spun on his own in Turn 3 and fell all the way down the order. Garg recovered to finish seventh.
Matt Christensen finished 2.217-seconds behind Christodoulou, falling behind in an intense battle with Saturday race winner Mac Clark. The fight went down to the finish as the pair of rookies swapped places multiple times mid-race. Christensen won the dog fight for his second podium finish on the weekend, while Clark settled for third to add to his collection of hardware from the weekend.
Noel Leon was in the thick of the podium battle until Lap 12, when he spun on his own out of contention. The DEForce Racing rookie stormed back to finish just out of the points.
The drive of the race was by Arias Deukmedjian. The Crosslink/Kiwi Motorsport rookie started at the back of the 26-car field after missing Race 2. Deukmedjian charged through the field, just missing the podium, finishing in fourth.
