Descending on Las Vegas for the weeklong race, BirelART North America left Sin City with two pole positions, three podium results and one ROK Vegas Championship. Taking on the ROK Cup USA season finale on the temporary circuit adjacent to Planet Hollywood, the Red Army was out in full force with over twenty drivers.
Leading the way on the results sheets was OMP Pole Position Winner Jordon Musser (PSL Karting), who reigned supreme in the ROK Shifter Master category. Out pacing fellow BirelART North America combatant Ryan Kinnear (Phil Giebler Racing), Musser was able to sneak by Kinnear in the late stages of Sunday’s main event to take the race win and accompany ROK Vegas title. Ryan Kinnear would hold on to finish second as Ryan Yop (Phil Giebler Racing) finished fifth to put three team drivers in the top-five while Nicholas Bedard (PSL Karting) crossed the line seventh to put four in the top-ten.
In the ROK Senior Shifter class, it was Jake French (PSL Karting) who was the fastest driver in Thursday’s qualifying session as he would start his quest for ROK Vegas glory from the pole position in the class that featured more than fifty drivers. Battling hard through the heat races, French came up one position short to finish second in the final, adding another podium result for the squad.
Three additional top-ten results came from three different classes over the weekend as Andres Fonseca (PSL Karting) finished fourth in VLR Master while Samuel Lupien earned a sixth-place finish in ROK Senior. Rocco Simone (Mottaz Sport) cracked the top-ten in Sunday’s main event to finish tenth, a solid drive for the ROK Micro competitor.
“We say it every time, but we have to say it again,” expressed BirelART North America’s Dominic Labrecque. “Our dealers and their race teams are amazing, and we can’t thank them enough for their efforts.”
