The California ProKart Challenge is set to resume its 2017 championship chase, having taken the month of May off for the running of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals. The SKUSA flagship regional program is adding another circuit as part of their flashback tour, traveling to the CalSpeed Karting Center in Fontana, California on June 2-3. This year, the CalSpeed race will be the third stop of the championship chase, with a number of drivers in solid position after the first two events. The CalSpeed facility has become a major fixture in southern California karting over the last decade, and the 3/4-mile ‘Grande’ layout is the proposed course for the event. This will be the first time the program has visited the circuit – located just outside the Auto Club Speedway – since the 2010 season. A number of current California PKC karters were part of that January 2010 event, which kicked off that season’s schedule.

The 2017 edition of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals completed Sunday at the Simraceway Performance Karting Center in Sonoma, California. The fourth round of the championship program welcomed sunny skies as temperatures warmed up, as did the action on the 7/10-mile course. Drivers were a bit more aggressive throughout the day, bringing about a busy day of action for the race officials, with many of the podiums decided by penalties or following tech. It was a big day for Vemme driver Braden Eves, coming through to score another SpringNationals triumph to back up his win last year in Phoenix. Billy Musgrave became the fourth different winner in the S1 to help make the championship chase even more interesting heading to the SummerNationals in New Castle.

EKN Trackside: 2017 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals – Saturday Report

The third and fourth rounds of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour brought the sport’s top drivers to the Simraceway Performance Karting Center in Sonoma, CA this weekend (May 5-7), and Saturday’s events on the 11-turn circuit were highlighted by huge wins for Nic LeDuc in S1 Pro Stock Honda and Ryan Norberg in X30 Senior. LeDuc did not attend the WinterNationals, so his victory will not likely play in the title chase, but on the other hand, Norberg’s triumph over a stacked 44-kart X30 Senior field has drastically improved his chance to defend his 2017 title and national #1 plate.

Despite high than normal winds, the weather was almost ideal with temperatures in the high-60s and the track’s layout opened up many opportunities for overtaking. That said, the racing was much more aggressive and contact-filled than the series opener at NOLA Motorsports Park in March. Even with the video marshalling system in place, drivers appeared to revert back to their less-than-stellar racecraft. Qualifying up front, and away from the mid-pack chaos was certainly a key component in a successful day.
