PKC North Travels to Reno for Round Three
Friday, 20 May 2011 12:54
The Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge North program will return to action next weekend with the third round taking place at the Desert Park Raceway in Reno, Nevada. The May 27-28 event will mark the first time the PKC program is to compete at the Northern Nevada Kart Club facility and journey outside the state of California. With the event falling on the Memorial Day holiday weekend, a full roster of series regulars and a number of local drivers are expected to be practicing on Friday and competing on Saturday, with plenty of time left over to enjoy the beautiful weather forecasted for the weekend.

The Desert Park Raceway is a multi-configuration facility, located less than 30 minutes from downtown Reno. The circuit to be used for the ProKart Challenge event will be Track #4, an 11-turn, 2/3-mile long track that currently holds a 46.610 course record. DPR hosted SKUSA events prior to this during the organization’s old administration, producing quality racing action and memorable moments. The eight categories competing on the weekend are sure to manufacture even more memories and excitement out on the course, and drivers in the shifter categories will be shooting to match or break that record once qualifying begins Saturday morning.

With just two events in the books and four left on the 2011 calendar, the championship chases are still up in the air. The Peterson Wealth Management-sponsored TaG Senior division has two drivers locked together at the top. Austin Elliott and TJ Fischer each scored a feature win thus far on the season and enter Reno just 20 markers apart. Reno-area residents Mike Botelho and Jess Peterson sit third and fourth, hoping their local knowledge can propel them up the order following Saturday’s action. Leading Edge Motorsports-sponsored S1 Pro Stock Moto will see Jason Toft and Brett Buckwalter continue their battle in Reno. Thus far, Toft has the slight edge after two rounds.

ProKart Challenge South Tackles Streets of Willow Circuit
Wednesday, 18 May 2011 08:04
Running over 100mph just one inch off the ground is an adrenaline rush like no other. That was just one of the many factors why karters gathered at the Streets of Willow complex inside the Willow Springs International Motorsports Park in Rosamond, California this past weekend. Superkarts! USA hosted round four of the six-race ProKart Challenge South championship series, coming off the very successful SKUSA Pro Tour opener just two weeks earlier. The title hunt for the ten categories competing on the 1.8-mile course raged on, with Brad Dunford establishing himself as the driver to beat for the championship in the headline S1 Pro Stock Moto category with win two of the season, while Devin Lindsey tossed his name in the hat for the TaG Senior chase with his first victory of the year.

The California karting scene is a hotbed for some of the best TaG Senior drivers in the country. Many of them took on the fast-paced Streets circuit searching for more glory in the Tony Kart West-sponsored category. Mason Marotta and Matt Johnson were the leaders of the pack through much of the day. Marotta posted the fast lap in qualifying (1:19.231), with Johnson in second. The Cricca brothers, Chris and Shawn, were third and fourth – all within a two-tenths of one another. Marotta and Johnson partnered up to drive away to a five-second win in the opening 10-lap heat race, and worked together in the second – only to have Johnson slingshot around Marotta for the win. In the 16-lap main event, Lindsey would join the mix at the front of the field after running inside the top-five all day. Once to the lead by lap five, Lindsey and Johnson would push themselves to a 1-2 finish, with the victory and fast lap credit with 10 important championship points going to Lindsey. Adrian Starrantino was able to track down Marotta on the final circuit to steal the third podium step, with Shawn Cricca in fifth over point leader Travis Lowe.

Post Race Updates - Streets of Willow
Written by Tony Leone

So thats another one in the books.  Thanks to all that made Buttonwillow and Tucson in addition to Streets as that marked 3 races in 6 weeks.  This was actually my first time to Streets of Willow and I enjoyed it very much.  I was actually surprised to see how close the racing remained given how long the track was.  So most of us know that little Colton Herta got his motor claimed in Tucson.  After watching his first heat and how far back he was from the lead pack I was almost certain it was a direct result of having a different motor.  But low and behold, the next few sessions he was back to himself, stretching a sizeable lead on the field.  Much like S4 where Jimmy McNeil once again dominated by sweeping all sessions except qualifying where Robert Marks edged him out by just 63 thousandths.  If you don't believe me, check out the official MyLaps Results.  If you weren't there, I have provided some mostly decent amateur photographs.  As usual, Ken broke out his abacus and calculated the Series Points.  Congratulations to Brad Dunford for his second S1 win putting him at the top of the points.  The REAL race report will be posted on EKN tomorrow and then here shortly afterwards.
 
PKC South Returns to Action This Weekend at Streets of Willow
Tuesday, 10 May 2011 08:34
Coming off the successful Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals – the opening round of the 2011 Pro Tour – Superkarts! USA is back in action this weekend as the ProKart Challenge South program gets its second half of the season underway. A popular destination for the Southern California karting community, the opportunity to race on the Streets of Willow circuit – a 1.8-mile road course on the grounds of the Willow Springs International Motorsports Park – will host this fourth round of the series. With just three more races left on the season’s schedule including Streets, the championship for the 10 categories in their best 5 of 6 races is still up for grabs.

The Extreme Karting-sponsored S1 Pro Stock Moto championship chase is among the closest entering this weekend’s action, with three different winners in as many events thus far. Ryon Beachner currently holds a slim five-point advantage over Brad Dunford – with defending class champ Clinton Schoombee 20 points back. All three showed the speed in Tucson; however, none left with hardware. Each will be looking to jump back on the winning streak and gain the extra edge on the title hunt. Nicky Freytag will be riding high off the Pro Tour opener as he continues to lead the 2 Wild Karting-sponsored S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto point standings heading into Streets of Willow. Freytag won the opening round feature in Arizona and came back to podium the following day to position himself to battle for the Pro Tour title. In Rosamond, Vivek Tandon and Bryan Lemon will look to close the gap on Freytag’s PKC point lead.
