EKN Trackside: Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals 2016 – Sunday Report
Sunday, 01 May 2016 00:00

After another warm day in the Phoenix desert, the 2016 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour is off and running with new winners, exciting stories, and loads of momentum. The first two races of this five-race national championship program are now in the books and SKUSA enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate 16 different winners in eight classes during the second day of the seventh annual SpringNationals, as there weren’t any repeat victors on Sunday. The level of competition has rose to a new level, following the trend of the overall entry numbers, hitting record heights. Winning in this program carries significant weight, and the breakthrough victories of pilots like Braden Eves (X30 Senior), Alan Michel (S4 Master), Dante Yu (X30 Junior) and Hunter Kelly (S2) have turned things upside down. Veterans rose to the occasion as well, as former Pro Tour champ Daniel Bray handled the day to score the S1 win, Jamie Sieracki was flawless in second X30 Master race, and Nick Firestone posted his first S4 Super Master victory. The young drivers in the program also impressed, with British talent Brandon Carr winning in Micro Swift while Tyler Maxson made a veteran-like last lap overtaking maneuver in Mini Swift to steal the win. In a simple statement, the competition in this year’s Pro Tour is stout.  Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Trackside: Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals 2016 – Saturday Report
Saturday, 30 April 2016 00:00

It was the start to a new SKUSA Pro Tour season, and it had it all. The first day of action at the seventh annual SpringNationals was a roller coaster ride of emotion, and weather forecasts as well. The paddock was packed, and the excitement and tension were palpable. The expectations of a typical hot and dry Phoenix day were eventually turned upside down by wind and rain, and were then made incredibly exciting by a journey from Evinco slicks to MG rains and, for the gambling few in S1, back to Evincos for a run to victory. Light sprinkles at the start of the mains made way for a period of hard rain in the middle of the X30 Master final, which pushed the drivers to adapt. And truly, the ability to ‘adapt’ was the theme for the day. A new track layout may have introduced limited overtaking opportunities, and blowing wind and sand may have decreased grip levels, but the level of competition was as record-breaking as the entry numbers, as the entire field both X30 Senior and X30 Junior qualifying were separated by less than a second.  Read full story on eKartingNews.com

Superkarts! USA SpringNationals 2016 Just 10 Days Away
Monday, 18 April 2016 08:56

The 2016 season is set to begin with a bang for the Superkarts! USA’s Pro Tour national series. The flowers are beginning to bloom, temperatures are steadily rising across North America, and the anticipation of beginning the championship chase is growing with each passing day. The 2016 SKUSA SpringNationals will take place April 29-May 1 at the Phoenix Kart Racing Association in Glendale, Arizona. Nine categories are set to battle in the seventh annual event, beginning the SKUSA Pro Tour competition that includes a return visit to Indiana for the SummerNationals and a 20th anniversary celebration of the SuperNationals this November.

It all begins at PKRA. Pre-Registration has been open for just over a month, with entry numbers surpassing 200 to date, the pits overflowing, and multiple classes on the verge of selling out at the 40-entry cap. Space still remains in all nine categories at the moment, but that is changing daily – with the pre-entry deadline of Sunday, April 24 at 11:59pm PDT looming. Drivers planning to attend this exciting event can register via the www.skusastore.com online link up until this coming Sunday at Midnight (unless their class sells out prior). Those unable to pre-register have an opportunity to sign-up trackside in available classes only beginning Thursday April 28, with race entry fees increased to $500 (currently at $395 for the two headline divisions and $350 for all others). Reserved pit spots are also a must, as SKUSA struggles to fit in all competitors registered to date.
