June 21, 2017 – The Rolison Performance Group (RPG) crew travels across the country for the next event in their lineup, the US Open/Rotax US Grand Nationals, June 23-25th, at New Jersey Motorsports Park. The west-coast team brings a small but strong line-up into the east-coast event, battling to secure the national titles and Rotax Grand Finals tickets up for grabs.
Billy Cleavelin will fly the RPG flag in the Masters Max category. Sweeping the Challenge of the Americas series earlier this season, another win may be in sight for Cleavelin, this time on the east coast. Jacob Gulick will pilot his RPG Kosmic chassis in the competitive Senior Max class. In his rookie season in the Senior division, Gulick has claimed multiple pole positions, podiums, and top-10 finishes, but is still on the hunt for his first Senior win in New Jersey. Teammate Luke Selliken will also throw his hat in the mix in Senior Max. Selliken returns to the kart after a strong run at the SuperKarts! USA SpringNats in Sonoma, CA. He will be looking to secure another national title and return to the Rotax Grand Finals once again.
Young pilot Graham Trammell is set to do battle in the Micro Max class. Trammell has been improving all season and secured his first victory at the Can-Am Karting Challenge last month. He will be battling for another strong result this weekend. Josh Pierson will throw his hat into the mix in the Mini Max division. Pierson has been pulling strong results all season, looking to land himself on the podium in New Jersey.
Hannah Greenemeier will hit the track in the Junior Max category. The young female driver recently claimed her first two victories of her Junior career at the Challenge of the Americas in Sonoma, CA, and the Can-Am Karting Challenge in Richland, WA. She will be on the hunt to add a third win to her resume. Arias Deukmedjian of Deukspine Racing will once again join the RPG team for the event, also running in the Junior Max category.
