EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 20 – Preview Series – S2 Semi-Pro

The S2 Semi-Pro division was introduced way back in 1998 at the SKUSA SuperNationals to allow the regional and club drivers the opportunity to race for victory at the top shifterkart event. It was added to the SKUSA ProMoto Tour the following season and remained until a restructuring of the ladder system in 2001 when the S1 division became the second-ranked class of the organization. When the SKUSA Pro Tour launched in 2010, Superkarts! USA realigned the ladder system to feature the S2 Semi-Pro division utilizing the Stock Moto package as the second tier category. Today, young drivers making the transition from Junior level competition develop the skills to grow into a S1 racer, while the category still gives those top regional drivers the ability to compete at the national level. Of the 10 previous SuperNationals S2 winner, no one has repeated the triumph, thus 2016 will welcome the 11th different victor with last year’s winner Dario Capitanio not returning. The same can be said for the Pro Tour in the last six years, as SKUSA will crown a new S2 Semi-Pro champion after SuperSunday.  Read full story on eKartingNews.com

In 2003, Touch and Go (TaG) engines were welcomed to the SuperNationals event with a Masters division, opening up with 15 competitors at the Rio. Michael Brookes was the inaugural winner and was able to repeat the following year for the first edition at the Sam Boyd Stadium location. Since then, three others have earned multiple wins in the category, now labeled the X30 Master division with the move to the IAME powerplant. For years, the category reached the 44-driver cap for entries early as the first class to sell out once registration opened to public. Superkarts! USA expanded the category past the 44-mark for 2016, with 53 drivers set to compete for a spot on the SuperSunday grid.  Read full story on eKartingNews.com
