2018 Membership and Kart Number Changes
Sunday, 26 November 2017 11:45
With growth comes a few challenges and difficult choices. SuperKarts! USA hasn’t been a stranger to either of these things during the past few seasons. After several lengthy discussions, we’ve decided on the following changes to better serve our growing customer base and expanding promotional efforts.

Calendar-Year Memberships
Starting in 2018, all SKUSA memberships will be good for the calendar year only. This means January 1st through December 31st instead of an expiration date 12 months after purchase. In order to simplify this transition, we will do the following.
  • If your current expiration date is between Jan 1 and June 30, 2018, your 2018 Membership Renewal will only be $50.
  • If your current expiration date is between July 1 and December 31, 2018, your 2018 Membership Renewal will be free.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you MUST submit an online renewal during the renewal periods described below.
  • The transitional renewal period for members will be December 1st through January 31th.
  • The transitional late renewal period will be February 1st through February 15th. Late renewals will cost $125.
  • Renewals after February 15th will be treated as new memberships.
  • New memberships will be $150.
The standard renewal rate for 2019 Memberships will then be $100, and the standard renewal period will then be December 1st through Jan 15th and the standard late renewal period will be January 16th through January 31st.

CIK Kart Numbers
Starting in 2018, SKUSA will be standardizing to CIK number specifications. This means solid yellow number panels and solid black numbers for all classes, 1 digit for champions, and 2 and 3 digits depending on your class. No more letter designators. Please refer to SKUSA Rule 20.2.2 for the dimensional specifics. Our use of the video marshalling system is the main catalyst for this change, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the difficulty of our track officials reading some of our color combinations and your custom number panels.

IAME Classes Shifter Classes
Micro Swift - 10-99
Mini Swift - 100-299 (200-299 reserved for overflow)
X30 Junior - 700-799
X30 Senior - 300-499 (400-499 reserved for overflow)
X30 Master - 500-599
S1 - 100-199
S2 - 200-299
S3 - 300-399
S4 - 400-499
S5 - 500-599
S4SM - 600-699
KZ (SuperNats) - 4-99

Reserved Numbers
I know what everyone is now thinking, and there is no easy way around it. We will no longer be reserving race numbers with your memberships. Each class will be assigned a block of numbers and when you enter your first race of any series you will pick from any available numbers in that pool. That will then be your “reserved” number for the rest of that series. Thankfully, MotorsportReg allows you to pick numbers in real time. You are likely to have a different number in the Winter Series, PKC and ProTour, so first come, first serve.
 
Superkarts! USA Announces 2017 Hall of Fame Inductees
Wednesday, 15 November 2017 12:51
Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce this year’s inductees to the SKUSA Hall of Fame. Veteran driver and multi-time SuperNationals winner Bonnier Moulton and long-time SKUSA official and Regional Director Terry Riggins will join the Hall of Fame in the second year of program. Last year, in conjunction with the 20th running of the SuperNationals, SKUSA named its first induction class, which included founder Don Janowski, former president Jim Murley, veteran driver Alan Rudolph and team owner Greg Bell.

“When you look at the 25-year history of Superkarts! USA, there’s a very small group of people who have been involved with the organization for over 20 years,” offered Tom Kutscher, SKUSA CEO. “Bonnier was a player from the very beginning of the ProMoto Tour. He’s raced in every SuperNationals and is part of a short list of three-time winners. Terry is part of SKUSA’s foundation and has played pretty much every role within the organization from driver to race director to regional promoter. These guys are ‘legend’ material when it comes to SKUSA history.”

Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser Set for Dallas Karting Complex This Weekend
Wednesday, 13 September 2017 15:50

Dallas Karting Complex is set to host a 'Texas Strong' fundraiser event this weekend

The United States has been hit over the past few weeks by a number of weather related disasters. The first was Hurricane Harvey, which reached the Texas ocean shores along the Gulf of Mexico on August 25. The amount of rain brought on by the storm caused massive flooding for the Houston area and the city continues to bounce back during what is expected to be a long cleanup and rebuilding process.

Dallas Karting Complex, nearly 300 miles north of the Houston, is doing its part to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. A FREE, two-day karting event will be held on September 16-17 to help raise funds with all proceeds going towards ‘Texas Strong’ relief effort. All entries are free along with spectators, with registration providing the opportunity to donate to the ‘Texas Strong’ relief effort through MotorsportsReg.com. At-track registration/donation will also be permitted.

Superkarts! USA Confirms Winter Series Dates

Superkarts! USA kicked off the new week with a schedule graphic posted to their social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram this afternoon, officially announcing the dates of their new two-weekend ‘Winter Series’ in Florida. SKUSA owner Tom Kutscher announced the January and February weekends they intended to target during his most recent ‘TomVersation’ YouTube interview with Eyenovation’s Chris Ortenburger, although this is the first official confirmation to come from the organization since the May 22 debut of the video.

SKUSA debuted its first ‘Winter Tour’ way back in January of 1999 in Opa Locka, Florida, so this new effort will mark the company’s return to the Sunshine State. The series will consist of two doubleheader weekends: January 12-14 and February 9-11. Based on the graphic presented, we suspect that the Temecula-based organization will be targeting Homestead Karting for the opening round and we’ve been told that the finale will likely be run at the Ocala Gran Prix circuit.

EKN has been told that the series will buck the current Florida ‘off-season’ trend of three race weekends due to the fact that the opening round of the 2018 SKUSA Pro Tour – the second annual WinterNationals – will again take place in early March.

We expect a full overview of the series to be released soon, but we’ve confirmed that the program will consist of four events with one drop being factored into the overall point championship calculations.
