Elliott Earns Debut Victory at ProKart Challenge North Dixon Round
Wednesday, 02 March 2011 08:56
A new era has dawned on the ProKart Challenge North program with the opening round of the 2011 season at the Kinsmen Kart Club facility in Dixon, California. Entering its fourth season, the PKC North operation will branch out to a total of five new circuits – including Dixon – to fill out the six-race championship program after centering the first three seasons around one facility. Despite the terrible weather forecast for the weekend, Friday’s practice day and, more importantly, Saturday’s race day was accomplished under sunny, albeit cold, skies. The temperature did not hamper the action on track, as the eight categories provided excellent racing. Austin Elliott made his Senior debut on the weekend, scoring the impressive victory in the competitive TaG Senior category. Brett Buckwalter (S1), Jared Woolf (S2), Ryan Rasberry (S3), Casey Scherer (S4), Glenn McKinnon (TaG Master), Austin Dement (TaG Junior), and Davey Manthei, Jr. (TaG Cadet) also kicked the season off with exciting victories.

Kinsmen Kart Club in Dixon to Welcome ProKart Challenge North Opener
Friday, 18 February 2011 09:51
Branching out for its fourth season under the Superkarts! USA banner, the ProKart Challenge North program will journey to six different facilities in 2011 for the six-round championship. After calling the Infineon Raceway facility home for the first three seasons, PKC North competitors will have a chance to sample six Northern California/Nevada tracks – starting with the Kinsmen Kart Club Track in Dixon, CA on February 25-26. The ProKart Challenge North series will be expanding the philosophy of ‘fierce competition and enjoyable race weekends’ to the new track locations, while bringing together the best karters in area under one banner.

With the ProKart Challenge North program expanding in 2011, SKUSA wants everyone to have the opportunity to come out and sample their program. Throughout the season, SKUSA will offer a free Friday practice day to anyone who has not run a PKC or SKUSA race in the past two years (a savings of $60) when registering for their first event of 2011. And those looking at the championship chase, PKC North will follow suite with the southern program, as SKUSA will reward those racers who participate in all six series events with 100 bonus points toward the series championship.

“Our first trip to the Dixon track is shaping up to be a great turnout,” remarked Tom Kutscher, SKUSA President and ProKart Challenge director. “We have been getting good feedback from the shops about the schedule, and we are getting a lot of new drivers applying for their SKUSA licenses. Moving away from one location to six different tracks has gotten people excited in the region, and I’m sure it will create better racing and tighter championship fights.”

SKUSA Pro Tour Releases Information for 2011 Program
Friday, 11 February 2011 15:47
Now that the new season of Superkarts! USA racing is officially underway – thanks to the successful completion of the opening round of the ProKart Challenge South series last weekend – it is with much excitement that the organization releases its plans for the 2011 SKUSA Pro Tour. The official schedule for the second edition of the program was announced in mid-November of last year, but specific components of the series have now been confirmed, such as an increased prize fund, the expansion of the SKUSA ‘Circle of Champions’ support package, and the opening of the online registration for the SpringNationals at http://www.superkartsusa.com . Additional event details, including a tentative event schedule, additional host hotel info and pit spot reservation instructions, will continue to be updated on the company website as those details are finalized.

To confirm the schedule, the SKUSA Pro Tour will kick off with the second annual SKUSA SpringNationals on the April 29-May 1 weekend at the incredible Musselman Honda Circuit (formerly P1 Kart Circuit) in Tucson, Arizona. The second stop on the schedule will be the SummerNationals on July 15-17 at Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Grand Junction, Colorado. The finale will once again be part of the consistently growing and ever-improving SuperNationals at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on November 16-20. Last year, almost 500 drivers participated in the race, and this number is expected to grow even larger in 2011 as a result of the increased support of SKUSA’s core classes.

Dunford and Marks Score Big at ProKart Challenge South Opener
Wednesday, 09 February 2011 09:41
Superkarts! USA got its new season off to a great start on Saturday when their ProKart Challenge South series made its first visit to Adams Motorsports Park in Riverside, CA. The historic facility rolled out the red carpet for the leading southern California racing series – and the result was a day of incredible racing, new winners and a lot of happy drivers. The weather was excellent for the February event, as sunshine and warm weather set the perfect stage. On track, S1 pilot Brad Dunford got the ‘gorilla’ off his back in winning his first main event, continuing his rise to the upper echelon of the sport, while Master pilot Robert Marks topped a stacked S4 field to begin the championship chase. Other winners included Race Liberante (S2), Sebastian Scaglia (S3), Micah Hendricks (S5), Howie Idelson (G1), Travis Lowe (TaG Senior), Paul Bonilla (TaG Master) Austin Dement (TaG Junior) and Jake Drew (TaG Cadet).

There is no doubt in anyone’s minds that Adams is a ‘driver’s track’ – and the challenge that was put before the SKUSA competitors was approached with excitement and respect. While there was talk from a small group of racers about the facility’s viability for a PKC event, the end result was an impressive display of racecraft that left those in attendance with a newfound respect for the track and their fellow competitors. It was truly a promoter’s dream, with incredible wheel-to-wheel racing and not a red flag all day.
