Read the GoRacing magazine article about the 2012 Rock Island Grand Prix race featuring several Texas ProKart Challenge Series racers, all racing under the 3G Kart Racing tent!
Jordon Musser won the King of the Streets crown for the 2nd time! 3G Kart Racing team member Jake French joined Musser on the podium in 2nd place and also set a new track record. Cordell Secrest qualified for the final on the front row only to be taken out of the race on the warm up lap.
Kudos to Jesse Woodyard in TAG Junior for leading the field to the checkered flag only to be removed for a wrong tire compound in post tech. Congratulations to Bucky Hewitt earning a 2nd place podium spot in TAG Junior.
Steve McCaffery qualified 5th in Shifter Masters and won a 3rd place podium spot in the final!
