SKUSA Stock Honda Carbs
Written by John Motley - National Technical Director   
Tuesday, 07 September 2010 14:32
We have had an increasing number of inquiries regarding the use of “Air Striker” carbs and other Kehin variations of carburetors for use in Stock Honda classes.

While we try to keep rules changes to a minimum, there occasionally are issues that require clarification or change.  Whenever possible we reach out to stake holders such as competitors and engine builders prior to making changes. We have done so in the following rules update effective October 1, 2010.

Our previous changes to the class have all been to reduce costs and equalize competition. We have mandated stock, readily available, reasonably priced components for these classes.  These changes have been almost universally welcomed. 

In keeping with this philosophy we are issuing the following carburetor specifications for all Stock Honda classes, including S5:

SUPERKARTS! USA ANNOUNCES THAT BRM WATCHES WILL BE THE OFFICIAL TIME KEEPER OF SUPERNATIONALS XIV.
Tuesday, 07 September 2010 10:42
If there’s one thing that goes hand in hand with any sport, it’s time. Winners and losers are decided by fractions of a second, and that were never truer than in competitive racing. Timepiece makers have long recognized the symbiotic relationship between the two, and virtually any sport in the world can speak of timekeeper affiliations.

For the 14th annual SKUSA SuperNationals, Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce a new partnership unique to the sport of karting with renowned French watchmaker: Bernard Richards Manufacture (BRM). The company has a vast relationship with motorsport, with numerous partnerships in both open wheel and prototype racing. The brand is synonymous with precision and excellence, offering a line of luxurious chronographs featuring precise automatic movement.

BRM has agreed to offer a handsome prize package for this year’s TaG Sr. and S4 race winners. Each will receive a one of a kind, custom-­‐built commemorative watch to recognize their achievement. It’s a prize worthy of a SuperNationals win and has a retail value of approximately $5,000 USD.

Thursday, 02 September 2010 08:14
The final leg of the 2010 season is just around the corner for the Superkarts! USA Central States Challenge. The final two weeks will complete its third season as a SKUSA regional program with the seventh and final round to take place September 11-12 at the I-55 Speedway karting track in Pevely, Missouri. With many of the regular series competitors calling the 0.55-mile course their home track, the competition level is sure to be at its best as the championships for the eight series categories will be decided.

Prior to traveling to the facility located south of downtown St. Louis, the series will be in attendance at this weekend’s Rock Island Grand Prix in the Quad Cities area. Considered to be the world’s largest street race, a number of SCSC competitors will be in attendance to bring home the coveted ‘Rock’ trophy. SKUSA Central States Challenge will be supporting the eKartingNews.com Trackside Live (www.ekartingnews.com/live) broadcast throughout the two-day event over Labor Day weekend.

PKC North to Wrap Up 2010 Over Labor Day Weekend in Sonoma
Friday, 27 August 2010 14:23
Coming off the very successful 2010 edition of the ProKart Challenge West Coast Shootout, the ProKart Challenge North regional program will wrap up its 6-race season over the Labor Day weekend (September 3-4) at the Jim Russell International Karting Center in Sonoma, California. The event at the Infineon Raceway facility is sure to be a solid one, with it tapped as the final Superkarts! USA west coast regional race prior to the SKUSA SuperNationals in November. Above all, championships for all nine regional categories will be decided with the final laps around the ‘National’ circuit of the JRIKC complex.

The headline S1 Pro Stock Moto category has been largely the domain of Fritz Leesmann since the opening round in February. The former ICC national contender made the move to the Stock Moto program this season and has not lost a beat. While he has not won since the first round, Leesmann has stood second on the podium in the last three events – including the PKC West Coast Shootout. Barring any issues during the final round, Leesmann should clinch the title – though he will have Brett ‘The Jet’ Buckwalter lurking nearly. Moving from TaG Senior back to the shifter ranks, Buckwalter has had an impressive 2010 season thus far, with three podiums in five events.

Similar to Leesmann, Matt Alcorn has been head of the class in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto division. Alcorn has accumulated three podium finishes, including two main event victories, in five races. Though he struggled at the PKC Shootout, Alcorn will look to bounce back with a victory to clinch the class championship. Neil Joseph and Cameron Pringle have been strong as of late, both recording two podium finishes in the last three events. Each have a victory on the season, as well, but only Joseph is close enough to pressure Alcorn for the title at the finale.
