In his best run of the week, Ryan Kinnear (Phil Giebler Racing / Ricciardo) goes one better than his 2018 ROK The Rio runner-up with a dominating performance and sweep in the Shifter ROK Master division. The Texan ran out to over a one-second lead by lap four and from there it was smooth sailing for the perennial front runner in the veteran shifter category.
Kinnear grabbed the early holeshot as he's done all week over Jordon Musser (PSL Karting / Birel ART). Musser, a fellow Texan, could not match the early pace of the Ricciardo Kart, but found himself comfortably in second ahead of Kevin Woods (Ron White Racing / CRG).
As the race began to settle in, Mike Beeny (Msquared Karting / Tony Kart) was storming through the field. The Utahn had to start form 8th after a DNF in the heats set him back. Beeny set fast lap of the race on lap 11 while running in third before making his final pass three laps later, moving into second over Musser down the long backstraight.
With Beeny in second, Musser came home in third ahead of a pair of CRG's in Rod Clinard (Ron White Racing) and Woods.
