The ‘Formula K Raceway’ in Glendale, Arizona is set to host the organization on May 4-6 for the second event of the 2018 season – the SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals. The six-round championship program that is the 2018 SKUSA Pro Tour began at the NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana in March at the WinterNationals. Over 200 drivers took part in the 2018 opening event, with similar numbers expected for Arizona. The middle two rounds of the series are set for the PKRA facility, where the organization has visited three times in the previous eight years of the SKUSA Pro Tour (2012, 2015, and 2016).

The California ProKart Challenge allowed its racers to stretch out their karting machines for the second round of the 2018 season. On March 30-31, the Superkarts! USA flagship regional program visited the Streets of Willow course at the Willow Springs International Raceway facility in Rosamond, California. The 1.6-mile course – with a reduced layout for X30 Junior and Swift drivers – took racers away from the normal karting track and onto a road course, reaching the highest speeds of the season. The 12 categories were put together into four race groups on the day, sticking with the same qualifying, two heats, and main event format. A number of classes were swept on the day, while others went down to the wire.

All six Stock Honda categories took to the Streets of Willow circuit in a combined race group throughout the day, putting 50 karts on track to make every session a busy one. At the front of the field all day was Billy Musgrave. The four-time series champion and SuperNationals 21 victor swept the Mad Old Nut S1 Pro Stock Honda class, but it was not easy. Musgrave cleared the entire race group by half a second with a 1:15.311-lap time, ahead of S1 rookie Rory van der Steur and Josh Lane, making his return to the California PKC. It was Brian Keck that put the pressure on Musgrave in Heat #1, stealing the lead for four laps until Billy retook the position and the win. Heat #2 saw van der Steur leading four laps before Musgrave resumed the spot – right before a red flag and restart cut the session short. Musgrave and van der Steur were able to get away from everyone in the 14-lap Final, making it a duel for the victory. Rory led the majority of the race, with Musgrave leading the final two circuits. At the line, the two were separated by 76 thousandths of a second at roughly 80mph. Lane was on the podium in third to cap off his return to the seat, while Matias Podboj and Peter Abba completed the top-five.

The 2018 season for the California ProKart Challenge began the first weekend of February. Now eight weeks later, the Superkarts! USA flagship regional program resumes with an exciting second event of the season. Competitors from the West Coast as well as across the United States are preparing to head to Rosamond, California and attack the Streets of Willow circuit. The famed course is among the most unique, as the road racing circuit is the only one to feature a distance of over 1-mile on the SKUSA 2018 calendar. Drafting, partners and playing chess at nearly 100mph sums up what the action will be like throughout the weekend at Streets.

The track configuration puts the full course in the clockwise direction (aka ‘up the hill’) at 1.6 miles for the X30 Senior, X30 Master and all Stock Honda categories. The X30 Junior, Mini Swift and Micro Swift divisions will utilize a shorter 1.1-mile layout.
