November 14, 2016Rolison Performance Group heads back to Las Vegas for the second time this year for the SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals 20. After producing a solid showing at the Sofina Foods US Open Las Vegas at the beginning of November, the team looks to achieve success for a second time. RPG will have a strong line up of 14 drivers from around the world who will compete in the Mini Swift, X30 Junior, and X30 Senior categories.

“We are excited to be back in Vegas for the biggest event of the year,” says team owner Mike Rolison. “The team performed well at the US Open finale, consistently running in the front of the field. We have the speed and talent to produce the same success at the SuperNationals 20. We will be working hard to be a dominant force on the track and put RPG on the podium.”

In Mini Swift, Josh Pierson (USA), Jonathon Portz (USA), and Guilherme Figueirdo (Brazil) will be competing for the RPG team. Pierson had a strong fourth place finish at the US Open Las Vegas, battling for third place down to the checkered flag. He will be working hard to achieve that podium finish this round in Las Vegas, ready to end the season with a bang.

Edward Portz (USA), Vinicius Ponce (Brazil), Arthur Leist (Brazil), and Jacob Gulick (USA) will all be running in the competitive X30 Junior category. Portz and Leist both had impressive runs in Rounds 3 &4 of the SKUSA Pro Tour, Portz taking fourth in Round 3 and Leist taking fourth in Round 4. These drivers hope to repeat their success at SuperNats and finish the series with strong results. American driver Jett Noland from NRM Racing Team, and Australian driver Broc Feeney of Team Bordogna Racing will also be joining the RPG team for the event in the X30 Junior category.

The X30 Senior field will include five RPG drivers: Parker McKean (USA), Gabriel Paturle (Brazil), Kellen Ritter (Canada), Adam Smalley (USA), and Michael Michoff (USA). Ritter will be coming into the event fresh off earning a vice championship in the Sofina Foods US Open series, as well as a positive trip to the World Finals in Italy with Team Canada. After running in the top-10 all weekend at the US Open, he looks to end his season with a solid finish at the SuperNats 20, another feat to add to his rookie season in Senior.
