Post Race Updates - Buttonwillow
Written by Tony Leone   
Tuesday, 12 April 2011 20:54
A little bit of rain on Friday evening didn't hamper the excitement for Saturday.  Once again the S4 field was stacked, but TaG Senior proved the most exciting with a red flag and a restart in the final.  While I usually don't like to toot the SKUSA horn, Ken has already updated the Championship PointsMyLaps results were online before I left for my four hour drive back to NorCal, and I've also uploaded my photos from the race as well.  We should have some podium photos via Kassy Loving shortly.  If that weren't enough, the race report was put online this morning.  On another note, a special thanks to Jim Baltutis (PKC OG) for the suggestion to list the venue name on the MyLaps article titles.  If anyone else has any suggestions or feedback regarding this website please let us know.  This years Pro Tour is shaping up nicely, see you in Tucson!!!
 
Beachner and Marotta Bag First ProKart Challenge South Wins
Tuesday, 12 April 2011 08:16
As the temperature across the country is heating up, so is the racing in the Superkarts! USA regional programs. Round three of the ProKart Challenge South series took place April 9 at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park kart track and served as the organization’s final event prior to its Pro Tour opener at the end of the month. The racing at the Buttonwillow, Ca facility was intense despite seven drivers completing a weekend sweep. The two headline categories were led by first-time winners on the season, Ryon Beachner (S1 Pro Stock Moto) and Mason Marotta (TaG Senior).

The Buttonwillow event served as a warm-up to the Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals in Tucson, Arizona (April 29-May 1), and was evident in the Tony Kart West-sponsored TaG Senior category with a number of non-PKC South drivers filling out the 17-kart field. David Vasquez kicked off his first PKC start of the season with the quick time in qualifying (46.022). The top five were within a tenth of a second with Mason Marotta, Kiel Spaulding, Chris Cricca, and Emily Maddison completing the fast-five. Vasquez’s time at the front was short-lived, as aggressive racing to begin the first heat race shuffled him outside the top-five early on. Spaulding assumed the point and took the win over Matt Johnson and Jess Peterson. During the race, Marotta was penalized for rough driving and put to the bottom of the result sheet. Spaulding broke away in heat two, claiming his second win of the day as Peterson held off point leader Travis Lowe for much of the race before Marotta knifed his way forward to steal the third position in the final circuit. The front of the field for the main event was missing one contender as Lowe was unable to start on time and started at the back of the field, eventually retiring from the race. Spaulding held the top position to begin the 20-lap race with Marotta trailing. Peterson fell down the order following contact, putting Johnson third early. The top two were able to break away with the final move coming on the final lap. Spaulding led all but the final circuit, as Marotta was able to take the lead and the checkered flag on lap 20 for the victory. Johnson held on to complete the podium while Peterson recovered strong to finish fourth with Maddison rounding out the top-five. Point leader Lowe was up to eighth before retiring on lap 10 to be classified 14th.

Honda Racing/HPD to Sponsor SKUSA SpringNationals
Thursday, 07 April 2011 09:17
Superkarts! USA is excited to release news that the organization will partner with Honda Performance Development (HPD) to kick off the 2011 national karting season. HPD will become the title sponsor of the opening round of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour, which will now been referred to as the Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals. The event will take over the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona on the April 29 – May 1 weekend, bringing the sport’s top TaG and shifter kart drivers together to begin the second running of SKUSA’s national program. As part of their support of the event, HPD will be providing all of the podium finishers in the Stock Moto classes with special product awards, and they will also be offering a contingency program that will be in effect throughout the entire Pro Tour season.

“The entrance of Honda Racing/HPD into our sport last year was an exciting announcement for karting, but I think that their sponsorship of our upcoming SpringNationals is even bigger, because it shows that they’re here to actively support what we do,” comments Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA president. “We have an understandable connection with HPD – thanks to our structured ladder of Stock Moto categories – and having them as our title sponsor for the SpringNationals will only serve to strengthen this working partnership.”

New Bridgestone Rain Compound NOW ALLOWED at PKC/SKUSA Events
Written by John Motley - National Technical Director   
Wednesday, 06 April 2011 08:19
Effective immediately, Bridgestone YLP rain tires will be permitted at all SKUSA/PKC events.  This compound joins the YJPs and YKPs as approved rain tires, and must be racer-supplied (as SKUSA/PKC does not currently sell rain tires). We apologize for the lack of notice, but the inventory levels of the previously-allowed tires have recently dropped to a level that necessitates this change.
 
PKC South to Award TaG Cadet Prizes at Buttonwillow
Thursday, 31 March 2011 12:29
The growth of the new TaG Cadet category is taking the Superkarts! USA organization by storm and the support from engine manufacturer Vortex continues to pour in. The sanctioning body is proud to announce additional prizes and a new four race mini-series within the ProKart Challenge programs, beginning at next weekend’s event - round three of the PKC South series at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in Southern California. The April 8-9 event will be the final ProKart Challenge race prior to the highly-anticipated SKUSA SpringNationals that will kick off this season’s Superkarts! USA Pro Tour. A strong number of drivers are expected to participate at the Buttonwillow event in preparation for the trip to Tucson, Arizona.

The final four races for each of the ProKart Challenge South and North programs will host the TaG Cadet Rok Cup International Final shoot-out, with the driver who scores the most points in each series earning an invitation to compete at the South Garda Karting facility in Lonato, Italy the October 16 weekend. In addition to the launch of the new mini-series, the event winner of the Buttonwillow event next weekend will be awarded a full entry to the SKUSA SuperNationals XV in Las Vegas, including a guaranteed starting position for the main event.
