Superkarts! USA Primed for Inaugural Midwest Shifterfest
Thursday, 29 August 2013 11:45
Over the past three years, Superkarts! USA has been working diligently to develop new regional programs through the Western half of the United States. Regional series and club support ventures have been launched in Texas, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest with much success and the organization’s growing Pro Tour has been on a steady upward climb of support since its launch in 2010. While the organization’s annual SuperNationals has routinely draw from all over the U.S., laying roots east of the Mississippi has not been as fruitful despite the fact that SKUSA’s real history begins in the Great Lakes region of the country. A new direction has been implemented and it will come in the form of a single one-off national event to reset the brand in the region. On September 13-15, Superkarts! USA will button up the current Midwest ProKart Challenge series at the inaugural ‘Midwest Shifterfest’, which will be the debut of a new event that will offer up loads of track time as a SuperNationals tune-up, and prize money for Open Shifter and S2. In addition, SKUSA is supporting this weekend’s Rock Island Grand Prix, offering free Shifterfest entries for the winner of any of the three gearbox classes (King of the Streets, 125cc Open Shifter and 125cc Masters Shifter).

The Texas ProKart Challenge – presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King®/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys/Dallas Karting Complex – hosted round seven and eight on August 16-18 at the Oklahoma Motorsports Complex. Revered as one of the top circuits in the country, Superkarts! USA and United States Rotax Max Challenge competitors from the southern states took on the challenging 8/10-mile course as the ten-round championship series looks to close out the 2013 season.

The weekend welcomed perfect racing conditions, with cooler than normal temperatures through the tree days in Norman, Oklahoma. Friday evening provided a great meal, courtesy of Rey Ferreyro and his local Chick-fil-A. All podium finishers received Motul products, with top end rebuild kits for the Stock Moto categories courtesy of Honda Performance Development, and three sets of Mojo tires to three Rotax drivers. In total, over $2,500 in awards and prizes were handed out on the weekend, including free entries and free hotels to the season finale. Of course, the weekend went smooth thanks to the great hospitality provided by the Berryhill family at the OMC facility. On-track, many of the usual suspects were found on top of the podium throughout the weekend, as the championship chases turned another page.

Texas ProKart Challenge Prepares for Night Races in Denton
Friday, 21 June 2013 12:55
The sun dropping over the horizon, smell of race fuel and tire rubber, lights shinning down on the pavement…night racing is among the most challenging and rewarding experiences in karting racing. For the competitors of the Texas ProKart Challenge regional series - presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King®/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys/Dallas Karting Complex - they will get their chance on June 27-29 at the popular North Texas Kartway in Denton, Texas. Rounds five and six of the 10-event championship program will be contested under the lights in a special Thursday through Saturday weekend for the United States Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA regional program.

“I’m really excited about next week,” stated Texas ProKart Challenge administrator Dave Pauly. “The people at the North Texas Karters are amazing to work with, and racing under the lights is something special. I know many, if not all of our racers are looking forward to the event, and we expect some drivers who have not yet raced with us this year just because of the night racing format. This will be a first for the series, and I expect it to become an annual trip for our program in the future.”

Several Drivers Extend Championship Lead at Second Stop for Can-Am Karting Challenge
Tuesday, 18 June 2013 11:29
The second event for the new Can-Am Karting Challenge took place at the historic Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Canby, Oregon. The 7/10-mile course provided a unique challenge for the Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA competitors taking part in the third and fourth rounds of the series. A number of winners stepped up once again on the weekend, setting up for a solid run in the second half of the championship chase.

Former United States Rotax Max Challenge champion Joey Wimsett doubled up on his home turf in the HoleShot Drive Systems Rotax Senior Wimsett set the bar in qualifying, edging out race winner Jake Craig by a scant 94 thousandths to earn the pole position with fellow local drivers Phillip Arscott, Andrew Zimmer and point leader Stepanova Nekeel rounding out the fast five. The front of the field remained unchanged with Wimsett continuing to show the way through the Prefinal with the win and the same contenders in the hunt. Wimsett went wire-to-wire in the 20-lap Final for the victory, driving away to a two-second advantage. Arscott, who posted the fast lap of the race, was able to work past Craig early and held it to the checkered flag to earn the second step of the podium in his first series start. Nekeel ran to fourth with Zimmer holding fifth.
