Max Weiland and his team from Magik Kart USA will be competing in the annual ROK Vegas event in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 3-7. This premier event in its fourth year is considered the Super Bowl of karting and is the most highly-anticipated race of the season. ROK Vegas also represents the final stop on the 2021 ROCK Cup USA calendar and an opportunity to put an exclamation point on an exceptional year of racing.
Weiland will arrive in Las Vegas after a strong performance in the MicroSwift USPKS Feature Race at the GoPro Motorplex in North Carolina earlier this month. While competing against the top 32 karting drivers in the United States in his class, Max won the Hard Charger Award for the most positions gained during Sunday’s race. He also qualified P3 on Saturday and P5 on Sunday before earning a pair of top-10 finishes in the Finals.
Earlier this season, Max and his team were also able to secure a victory in the Microsoft Feature Race in North Carolina back in August. During an exciting finish in Charlotte that weekend, Weiland closed strong by moving into P1 on the final two laps of the race. He also won the Stars Championship Series Event in July after winning at New Castle prior to that. Despite this being only his first full season of racing, the 10-year-old from Cleveland expects to continue to be a major factor on the track throughout the trip to Nevada next week.
