Midwest ProKart Challenge to Wrap Up 2012 Season at New Castle Motorsports Park
Tuesday, 14 August 2012 11:55
The Midwest ProKart Challenge will complete the 2012 season with the final two rounds of competition, held this weekend at the New Castle Motorsports Park. The popular Indiana facility will host its first Superkarts! USA regional event under the Midwest PKC banner with an encouraging number of competitors scheduled to take on the 1-mile course designed and owned by karting stalwart and former IndyCar driver Mark Dismore.

“I’m really excited for this weekend’s events and to close out the 2012 season,” commented Stan Bryniarski - Midwest ProKart Challenge director. “This year has been about growth and expanding the SKUSA-brand style of racing back to the Great Lakes area. The states and tracks in the region are second to none, and we have a lot of plans for the future of the series. I’d like to thank all those who supported the program this year, and the facilities that have welcomed us. This weekend will be a great ending and give competitors one final chance at SKUSA competition before they make the trek out to the SuperNationals in November.”

Koyen and Sieracki Earn Victories in Midwest ProKart Challenge Debut
Monday, 16 July 2012 00:02
Superkarts! USA returned to the state of Wisconsin after a number of years away when the Midwest ProKart Challenge took its series to the Road America facility in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on June 30-July 1. The Blain’s Farm & Fleet Motorplex inside the famed 4-mile circuit hosted karters from around the Great Lakes area to contest rounds three and four of the six-race series. Those drivers on hand battled warm weather conditions and a challenging course, while completing nearly 100 competition laps over the two days. The championships moved to the next chapter following the opening two rounds in Quincy during the month of May, and will complete its final stage come August 18-19 at the New Castle Motorsports Park.

The TaG Senior class, sponsored by Kart Star Motorsports, was very competitive with familiar names battling one another. Point leader Tommy Andersen led things to start off the action on Saturday as he posted the fast lap of 49.2 seconds. Andersen went on to win both heat races, although he was challenged by fellow Wisconsin driver TJ Koyen in both. In the feature, Koyen would come through for the victory to end Andersen’s streak, dropping him down to second with veteran Jamie Sieracki in third. Sunday saw Sieracki jump to the top of the sheets in qualifying with a new set of MG Tires strapped on, bettering the time set by Andersen the previous day by seven-tenths. Koyen came forward in heat one, taking the win and bringing Andersen with him to put Sieracki back to third. Andersen took his turn at the point as he came away with the win in heat two, as Sieracki ran second and Koyen fell to third. Sieracki was able to get the jump as the green flag waved to start the feature race. Zach Hawley jumped into the battle for second, allowing Sieracki enough time to establish a sizable lead. After 20 laps, Sieracki scored the victory by two seconds over Andersen and Koyen.

Rest in Peace – Gene Severino
Thursday, 28 June 2012 20:13
It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our friend and colleague, Gene Severino.

Gene was a greatly valued participant in karting -- first with his boys, Nick and Joe -- and then as a tech inspector at many club, regional and national events. Many of you may remember him at Pro Kart Challenge and SKUSA SuperNationals events.

His depth of knowledge and experience, as well as his willingness to help new karters, leaves a void impossible to fill. His loss will be deeply felt.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Linda and the rest of his family.

Finale Weekend for Texas ProKart Challenge Set for June 29-July 1 in Denton
Tuesday, 26 June 2012 00:00
The Texas ProKart Challenge (TPKC) presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King™/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys will close out its inaugural season on the June 29-July 1 weekend. The North Texas Kartways will be the site of rounds five and six as the North Texas Karters host competitors in the Superkarts! USA and United States Rotax Max Challenge programs under the TPKC banner. Racers will complete the three event series with the championships coming down to the best five of six rounds counted toward the final standings.

The North Texas Karters operate the North Texas Kartways circuit. The 1/2-mile course is nine turns, and provides a great challenge for racers. The facility hosted the Rotax Grand Nationals in 2003 and has groomed a number of top drivers in the sport today. On the line for the champions will be a paid entry and guaranteed starting spots for the SuperNationals XVI in Las Vegas on SuperSunday in the SKUSA categories, while Rotax drivers will earn a paid entry to the US Rotax Grand Nationals in August. With a drop race calculated into the final championship standings, anything can happen in the final two rounds to decide just who will stand on the P1 step of the championship podium.

Midwest ProKart Challenge Brings SKUSA Back to Wisconsin
Thursday, 21 June 2012 08:39
Superkarts! USA returns to the state of Wisconsin after a long hiatus, with the second stop of the Midwest ProKart Challenge set to visit the Blain’s Farm & Fleet Motorplex inside the grounds of the famed Road America course on June 30-July 1. Over 10 years ago was the last visit by the then SKUSA Mid America region series. The new Midwest ProKart Challenge is committed to rejuvenating shifterkart and TaG racing throughout the Great Lakes region. Last month was a visit to the historic TNT Kartways along the Missouri/Illinois border. This month, racers in the Badger State are encouraged to travel to Elkhart Lake, WI for a great weekend of racing.

The 4-mile Road America facility has been a staple in the motorsports world since it was developed for competition in 1955, and has never changed from its original layout. The newly-named Blain’s Farm & Fleet Motorplex was constructed in 2001 inside the ‘Carousel’ and alongside the ‘Hurry Downs’ section of the big course. It has hosted a number of national events in its 12-year history, with the local Road America Kart Club contesting local events weekly. The layout is roughly 8/10-mile with 13 turns and drastic changes in elevation from one end to the other – certainly a challenge for drivers and their machines.
