Making the trek to Las Vegas for the third annual ROK Cup USA ROK the RIO, BirelART North America has entered more than twenty-eight drivers in this weekend's competition. Set to take on the biggest ROK Cup race in North America, a stacked list of competitors across the BirelART North America dealer network are looking to be named ROK the RIO champions.

"We have drivers from nine different dealers racing in Las Vegas this weekend," expressed Dominic Labrecque. "It is great to see the support and growth of the BirelART product line throughout the country and this is a direct result of our dealer network.
