A stacked field of Briggs & Stratton powered Margay Ignite karts will take the green flag this weekend at the third annual Ignite Shootout at the Rock Island Grand Prix in Rock Island, Illinois.  Building on the successes of the first two years, the 2017 Ignite Shootout will feature the familiar Ignite Junior and Senior and new for this year – Ignite Masters.  Competitors from 9 states will fill the grid this Labor Day weekend looking to tame the streets and walk away with ‘the Rock’ and the Ignite Shootout Cup.  Navigating the streets of the RIGP is a challenge in itself, and the equally prepared spec Ignite karts will guarantee a close race in all three classes, making them the races to watch throughout the weekend.
