SUPERTUNE BRINGS ELEVEN ENTRIES TO ROK THE RIO IN LAS VEGAS
With the end of the 2020 race season just around the corner, Supertune is aiming to go out on top. Claiming a pair of ROK Cup USA ROK the RIO titles in 2019, the Indianapolis based program is bringing eleven entries to the 2020 edition of the event to try and add to their success.
With four drivers in the Junior ROK category, multi-time race winner John Burke, perennial front runner Noah Baker, Supertune newcomer Cameron Weinberg and 2019 ROK the RIO Junior 100cc Champion Jorge Ortiz will all look to stand atop the podium on Championship Sunday. With five days of on track action and an expected entry list to be greater than three hundred drivers, these four competitors will compete in the biggest ROK Cup USA race of the year.
While Burke and Ortiz will focus solely on the Junior ROK class, Baker and Weinberg will pull double duty in Las Vegas as they will both see action in the Junior 100cc category. Competing in the class on several occasions in 2020, the two Supertune drivers are doubling down on their chances to win in Sin City.
Four more Supertune entries will come from the Mini ROK class and they will be led by Challenge of the Americas Mini ROK Champion Christian Cameron. Cameron, who tore up the West Coast winter program, dipped his toes in the tougher East Coast grid and held his own, often seen near the front of the field. Now, heading to Las Vegas, the youngster will put it all on the line for ROK the RIO glory. The second Weinberg entry, Carson Weinberg, will throw his hat in the mix in Mini ROK along with Fernando Luque, who has shown huge strides of improvement all year long along with Utah karter Collin Ruess.
Alex Zhang will be the sole international entry for Supertune and will see action in the Senior 100cc class. A new ROK Shifter owner, Zhang will look to master the 100cc class before making the switch to the 125cc gearbox class in 2021.
With practice beginning on Wednesday, November 4th and ROK the RIO Champions being crowned on Sunday, November 8th, be sure to follow the Supertune social media platforms throughout the event to keep up to date.
