ROLISON PERFORMANCE GROUP GEARS UP FOR SUMMERNATIONALS
“Team heads east for final Pro Tour event of the season
August 9, 2017 – The Rolison Performance Group (RPG) team heads east to Indiana for the SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) Summernationals, the final round of the Pro-Tour series, at New Castle Motorsports Park. The team brings in a full roster of 12 drivers to the event, spanning over the Mini Swift, X30 Junior, X30 Senior, S2, and X30 Masters classes, and welcomes two new drivers to the RPG crew. With a remarkable summer of racing so far, RPG heads to the Indiana circuit confident, focused, and ready for strong results and championship contention.
Kyle Wick will hit the track in the S2 shifter category, and is set to challenge for the Pro-Tour title. Wick has earned his first Pro-Tour victory, along with a second and third-place finish this season at the winter and spring Pro-Tour events, putting him in contention for the championship.
In the X30 Senior category, six RPG drivers are set to do battle in the 60-kart field. Jacob Gulick, Logan Cusson, Kellen Ritter, Samuel Lupien, and Cedrik Lupien will all be returning to the Pro-Tour circuit with hopes to finish out the season with strong finish in the front of the field. Emma Delattre will also join the X30 Senior field. New to the RPG team, the Conneticut driver will be running her first senior race this weekend at just 15 years old.
Tim Meyer will fly the RPG flag in the X30 Masters category. Meyer is the second new driver to join the team for this event, making the trek to the Indiana circuit all the way from Southern California.
Hannah Greenemeier and Pedro Lopes will throw their hats into the mix in X30 Junior. Greenemeier comes into the event with an impressive summer of racing under her belt, including a top-10 finish at SKUSA Springnationals, earning a ticket to the Rotax Grand Finals, and most recently back-to-back wins at the Can-Am Karting Challenge. She will be looking to carry her momentum into the Indiana-circuit. Lopes earned a top-10 finish in Sonoma at Springnationals, hoping for another solid run to close out his Pro-Tour season.
Josh Pierson and Biggs Tiner are set to do battle in the Mini Swift category. Pierson heads into the race fresh off a win at the Rotax Grand Nationals, earning a ticket to the Rotax Grand Finals this fall. Both drivers will be looking to lay down solid finishes at the final Pro-Tour event of the season.
