The final event on the 2021 ROK Cup USA calendar is here as Supertune has traveled from their home base in Indianapolis, Indiana to the site of the ROK Vegas event in Las Vegas, Nevada. Set to commence on a temporary circuit next to Planet Hollywood, Supertune will enter five drivers in a variety of different classes over the five-day event.
Fresh off his double United States Pro Kart Series victory less than three weeks ago, Diego Ardiles enters ROK Vegas as one of the favorites in the Mini ROK category. Always a contender, Ardiles will have a fast teammate this weekend as Asher Ochstein will join Supertune to provide a powerful one – two punch.
“We welcome Asher to the team and look forward to a positive event and a successful future,” explained Ben Cruttenden. “He has been tough to race against in the past so to have him as part of our program is great. Diego has proven that he is a driver to beat in every series with every engine platform so putting him and Asher together in Mini ROK provides us with a top driver lineup.”
A former winner at the ROK Vegas event, Jorge Ortiz will be back in the ROK Junior class as he looks to double up on his Las Vegas victories. A winner in the VLR class, Ortiz will enter the talent filled ROK Junior ranks aboard a Supertune prepared Tony Kart. In the VLR Junior class, Christian Quijano will make his return to Supertune in Las Vegas. Venturing off to try other programs in the past calendar year, Quijano is returning home with his sights set at the front of the field. With four entries in the Mini and Junior ranks, only one driver will enter the Senior category as Haopeng Zhang will return to Las Vegas in the VLR Senior division.
