Scott Barnes reflected on his weekend competing at the Xtream Rock Island Grand Prix.
Barnes posted on social media, ďSitting here waiting for my flights back to Bermuda, looking back on the 2022 RIGP weekend. Leaving Rock Island, my favorite race of the year, feeling like I got punched in the side by Tyson lol!
I laid down Over 250 laps on the rough streets of Rock Island this weekend over 4 different Karts. We got 2 Pre Final wins, 2 seconds, 3 thirds a 5th & 6th. We were set up with two poles and 6 top 4 starts for Sunday.
Sunday just wasnít our day after leading most of the first race, we got put into the barriers, in turn, two on the last lap while leading, and it snowballed down from there and ended up on my head coming out of turn 6 in race 3 while bumper to bumper with 1st and 2nd place karts after the 1st place kart got turned sideways and collected the both of us!
We led a ton of laps over the races and ran up front the whole day, just didnít have the luck to get the wins we wanted.
Never gave up thou and was able to finish the day off strong picking up the Wins in the Last Two races of the day!!
Itís so hard to win at this place so Iím happy with the end results. It wasnít the 4/5/6+ rocks we wanted to get, but we came here this year to get multiple Rocks and we did.
Leaving beat up but safe after so many laps and races with great memories and another race weekend for the record books!
Was a great weekend under the Magik Kart USA tent this weekend going toe to toe with a few of the top shifter kart drivers in the country AJ Myers, Andrew Bujdoso, Austin Wilkins, and Joseph Ruch.
See ya next year Rock Island Grand Prix coming back for more Rocks faster, stronger and even hungrier.Ē
