The Entry List : Rok the Rio – Part 2

We’re only days away from touching down in Las Vegas for the inaugural Rok the Rio. The hype continues to build as Rok Cup USA prepares their temporary circuit in the rear parking lot at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The total number of entries has now exceeded 215 drivers and we’re excited to share part 1 of the entry list, featuring the Micro Rok, Mini Rok, Junior Rok grids. Junior Rok is nearing 40 drivers in total, with Mini Rok in the thirties. It is also great to see the foundation of the sport, Micro Rok, with more than twenty entrants.

The paddock will be very diverse as well with 16 drivers from different countries and all four corners of the USA. There are also no less than 28 different chassis brands that will hit the asphalt this weekend in Las Vegas.

Senior Rok

Featured Five:

Ryan MacDermid (Photo by: Cody Schindel / CKN)

  • Ryan MacDermid – It’s hard not to consider MacDermid as a race winning threat. He’s been dominant in Canada this season and also scored a huge win at the SKUSA SummerNationals. He also finished P2 at the RIO two years ago as a Junior on an almost identical race circuit.
  • Jake Drew – This first year Senior was very impressive in his only start of the Challenge of the Americas, sweeping the weekend at CalSpeed. Pulling double-duty in Las Vegas will also give him some extra track time to find speed on the temporary circuit.
  • Ryan Norberg – PSL Karting’s hot shoe simply cannot be ignored. The Florida Winter Tour champion is up front at every race he competes at.
  • Zach Claman DeMelo – The Indycar driver who loves karting. ZCD is back for more and always fast. He also was a race winner the last time a kart race took place at the Rio, so he should get up to speed quickly on a familiar circuit.
  • Emma Delattre – Coming off a win in the OMP Trophy at the Rok International Final, Delattre’s improvements as a driver this season has made her a podium threat.

100cc Senior and Master

Featured Five:

Cooper Becklin (Photo by: Cody Schindel / CKN)

  • Cooper Becklin – Pulling double-duty in Las Vegas, it will be interesting to see Becklin make his Senior debut in the 100cc class.
  • Colby Dubato – Racing out Phil Giebler racing, Dubato has been impressive in 2018.
  • Jenson Altzman – Competing in both Senior Rok and 100cc Senior could be a huge benefit for Altzman, getting valuable extra track time on the temporary circuit.
  • Jonathan Silva – Runner-up in the Challenge of the Americas, Silva is fast and if the two 100cc classes run together, could be battling with the Seniors.
  • Kalvin Chen – At CalSpeed, Chen is a force in any category he contends in. Watch for him to battle for the Masters crown.
