A year removed from a dominating performance in the 2022 Little 500, Melanzana became repeat champions during the 35th running. Following a one-hour rain delay, Melanzana started the race again from the 13th position, but made a quick move to the front within the opening 10 laps. Teter broke away from the field around lap 46 and built a 17-second lead. A group of teams including Melanzana, Delta Gamma and Alpha Chi Omega eventually gained on Teter. Melanzana, emblazoned with the vibrant yellow jersey reserved for the defending champion team, separated from the leading pack after a series of late-race exchanges and never looked back. Teter finished second, followed by Alpha Chi Omega in third.
