The 2018 season for the California ProKart Challenge resumed on June 1-2 as the program visited the CalSpeed Karting Center in Fontana, California. After taking the months of April and May off for the SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals, racers from all over the western half of the United States converged on the ‘Grande’ circuit that sits just outside the Auto Club Speedway facility, where many of the southern California karters call home. The total number of racers reached the 150 mark, as the series met the halfway point of the championship chase by putting Round Three into the books.

After a small hiatus for national competition, Superkarts! USA’s flagship regional program, the CaliforniaProKart Challenge, returns to action at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana for Round 3 of the 2018 championship on June 1-2. The popular venue also plays host to the Los Angeles Kart Club (LAKC) and is among a favorite of local competitors, thanks in part to its proximity and wide variety of configurations.
 
While the 2018 championship is only two races in, some early season favorites look poised to make their bid for the regional title. National #2 Billy Musgravecontinues to be the man to beat in the Mad Old Nut / Mad Croc USA Pro S1 category. The MRC factory pilot has not put a wheel wrong since his SuperNationals 21 victory. But Matias Podboj and Brian Keck continue to give chase and will no doubt look to upset the PKC points leader. Musgrave runs well at the paved CalSpeed circuit, so the two will have their work cut out for them.

SKUSA and IAME USA Outline Release for Long Awaited SKUSA ‘SSE’ Spec 175cc Shifter Engine
Wednesday, 23 May 2018 12:08

Superkarts! USA (SKUSA), in conjunction with IAME USA and IAME S.P.A., are excited to announce details of the long awaited release of the SKUSA shifter engine (SSE). The powerplant has been in development for several months with multiple iterations, developments, and improvements along the way. Both IAME and SKUSA couldn’t be more excited for the next evolution of the shifter platform in Superkarts! USA competition.

“It’s no secret, I’m a gearbox guy at heart,” explained SKUSA president Tom Kutscher. “As far back as the days when I drove in SKUSA myself, I’ve always enjoyed the added challenge of shifting gears. That said, finding the appropriate successor to the current engine format was something I took great care to consider and make perfect.”

SKUSA Claims Engine at Phoenix SpringNationals
Written by John Motley - National Tech Director   
Friday, 18 May 2018 21:44
At our recent SpringNationals, SKUSA exercised its option to claim a competitor’s engine. We have done so periodically to insure that there are no special or outstanding engines, or any unauthorized modifications that require additional inspection not available at the race. IAME engines used in SKUSA competition are remarkably identical, reflecting the high quality and manufacturing ability of IAME. However, the perception exists of special or significantly better performing engines. To refute this, we intend to exercise our option to claim engines from time to time. Note that the engine claimed met all applicable SKUSA rules and was replaced at the event with a complete new engine package as well as a check for $500, as SKUSA rules provide.
