Video: Relive 2018 ROK The Rio ahead of this week's race!

Watch the 2018 highlight video from Sin City.

Produced by Kart360 in partnership with Shofner Films.

Before the Bridgestone rubber hits the pavement in Sin City tomorrow, let's all take a moment to relive the sights and sounds from the inaugural ROK The Rio in 2018. Just over 200 competitors made it out for ROK Cup USA's first event under the shadows of the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Early numbers indicate that the event will be more than 50% larger this year. It's officially time to get excited.

Our 2019 ROK The Rio Live Blog is published and ready for the weekend. Results and reports from 2018 can be found on our archived live blog page.
