Making the trek south to the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona, Christian Bird Motorsports will enter three drivers in the opening round of the ROK Challenge of the Americas. Traveling from their home base of the Grand Junction Motor Speedway, Christian Bird Motorsports drivers will be on track mid-week to take advantage of extra testing time as they commence their 2020 campaign.

"We do not have the largest contingent of drivers, but we do have three drivers that can challenge for strong results," explained Christian Bird. "Additionally, we will be able to focus on the speed and development of these three competitors as we work with them in our program and improve not only their on-track driving but their off-track knowledge."

Leading the way into Tucson will be ROK Senior rookie Liam Letszch as he levels up from the junior class into the ultra-competitive senior ranks. As a frontrunner and multi-time race winner in 2019, Letszch will look to take his Christian Bird Motorsports prepared FA Kart to the front of the field.

Two female drivers will fly the Christian Bird Motorsports flag in ROK Junior as Macy Williams and Deanna Hoffman enter the mix. Frontrunners throughout the state of Colorado, both Williams and Hoffman will look to put their names at the front of the Challenge of the Americas field.

Bird continued, "This is only the start of our season as we have a full slate of races on our calendar. Pending the right number of drivers, we will travel to all Superkarts! USA Pro Tour events, the SKUSA SuperNationals, ROK Fest, ROK the RIO as well as the Colorado Karting Tour. Mix in some test weekends and local level races, and our calendar is full for 2020."

Christian Bird Motorsports has several used team chassis available. If you are looking for affordably priced CRG shifter chassis or the potent FA Kart by OTK, contact Christian Bird Motorsports today.
