SKUSA Partners with City of Lancaster to Promote Grand Prix
Monday, 09 May 2011 10:17
Superkarts! USA and the City of Lancaster, California are excited to officially announce their new partnership for the 2011 edition of the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix. Effective immediately, the SKUSA staff will take over the administrative planning and on-track responsibilities for the event – and they will work together with the city to achieve the goal of growing the Grand Prix into the largest karting festival in California. The race is set for the October 7-9 weekend, giving karters in the Southwest the opportunity to rip through the streets of the southern California city during the third edition of this popular event.

As the leading professional karting organization in the country, Superkarts! USA promotes and manages the largest annual kart race in the nation – the SuperNationals in Las Vegas – and they are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to take the Streets of Lancaster event to the next level as well.

Wow!  What a track, what a race!  We had some stacked fields in most of the classes, although the competition was fierce in ALL classes... well except for TaG Cadet where Colton Herta took P1 in all 4 heats and both mains.  So it comes as no surprise that his motor was claimed by another competitor.  EKN was on site doing a live broadcast of the race call, alongside my live timing feed for the people who couldn't be there.  They've also written complete recaps of each day. (Saturday, Sunday)  For stunning visuals make sure to check out the photos (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) provided by Todd McCall of On Track Promotions.  And finally, a special thanks to SKUSA's own Ken Schilling, for his work on the Championship Points.  Bench racers and beyond can find complete MyLaps results for Round 1 and Round 2Hope to see you all at the Streets of Willow next weekend, and stay tuned for more exciting announcements!
 
SKUSA National to Oversee 2011 Mountain Region Program
Friday, 06 May 2011 13:43
The Superkarts! USA Mountain Region will see some new faces on the sidelines when the season kicks off in June, as the organization’s national office will jump into the program to aid in the development of the series through the 2011 season. SKUSA President Tom Kutscher will take over the reigns of the program with the goal of applying all of the components of their successful ProKart Challenge series to the Mountain Region, working alongside newly-announced Regional Director Curt Kistler. A targeted three-weekend, four-event schedule has been constructed to supply Colorado racers with SKUSA-style shifter and TaG racing, and new prize and reward packages are currently in the works to launch this new-look program. A new SKUSA Mountain Region website has also been developed and is now ready to be presented to the Colorado karting community.

“Colorado has long been a big part of the SKUSA community and it’s extremely important to me to see a strong series developed in the state,” said Tom Kutscher, SKUSA President. “We were able to develop passionate support over the past year, but we’re going to step up big-time in 2011 to really fire it up. We’re going to take control of the series from the national office to put everything into place, and I’m very much looking forward to working with Curt Kistler to re-ignite the Mountain Region!”

SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals Sunday Report
Written by eKartingNews.com   
Tuesday, 03 May 2011 13:53
The final day of the Superkarts! USA Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals completed a near perfect start to the 2011 SKUSA Pro Tour. The Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona and the nearly 170 drivers on hand provided an exciting show from the morning hours in qualifying to the last corner of the final main event of the day. The weather was the best it had been all weekend with comfortable temperatures and a slight wind. Leaving the weekend, eight drivers have put themselves in the best position at claiming the Pro Tour championship, including a couple double winners on the weekend.

TaG Senior

The qualifying session for TaG Senior was an open pit lane, but no one waited to take the track for the 12-minute run as all 33 karts hit the track. Louie Pagano (Birel) was the provisional pole holder early until SKUSA SuperNationals winner Andre Nicastro (Italkart) took the position from him. Five minutes in, the top driver from Saturday’s qualifying session - Mason Marotta (Tony Kart) - moved to the top spot. Nearly every driver came into the pit lane to make changes, looking for some extra speed but it appeared that no one was able to better their own personal best. That was until Matt Johnson (Tony Kart) found Marotta on track and used him as a rabbit. Johnson jumped to P3 to move Pagano down to fourth. Marotta’s 49.777 was best and he would end the session with another pole position on the weekend with Nicastro starting outside row one of heat one. Adam Isman (Italkart) had a great session, posting the fifth fastest lap to complete the fast-five.

Marotta kept his P1 position as the TaG Senior field was clean through the start of heat one. Johnson shuffled Nicastro back to third, while Pagano and Devin Lindsey (Tony Kart) were right there. The group was busy with Nicastro back up into second and a host of others fighting for third. Saturday winner Brett Felkins (Intrepid) was the driver on the move from his sixth starting spot. By the halfway mark, he was on the bumper of Pagano looking for a way by for the third spot. Nicastro kept close to Marotta with two to go as Felkins now was into the third position and closing in on the front two. Nicastro looked at the big picture and did not make an advance on Marotta, who would score the win. Felkins was a close third with Pagano and Johnson capping off the top-five.

SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals Saturday Report
Written by eKartingNews.com   
Sunday, 01 May 2011 00:00
The Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals kicked off the start of the 2011 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour season, putting in the first round of results into the books Saturday at the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona. After battling hash weather conditions during Friday’s practice, including high temperatures and strong wind gusts that damaged tents throughout the paddock, Saturday was a warm welcome to comfortable racing conditions. With roughly 170 drivers in attendance and the fields stacked with talent, the racing on track was phenomenal as the nearly 8/10-mile circuit provided the perfect backdrop for exciting wheel-to-wheel action. At the end of the day, the first 2011 Pro Tour winners were established with a number of drivers earning their first ever series victory.

S1

With the pro drivers of the S1 category, track time was limited to what they needed to post the fast lap. For Brad Dunford (CRG), he did it on his out lap early on. The SoCal driver set the bar with a 48.453 and returned to pit lane after a few more laps to see where he stood. Happy with the result, he watched as the veterans took to the track. Kiwi driver Daniel Bray (GP) posted the second best lap of the session and was unable to better Dunford’s time. Defending champion Fritz Leesmann (CRG) ended the session in third with Clinton Schoombee (DR Kart) in fourth while S1 rookie Ryon Beachner (Tony Kart) capped off the fast-five. Two-time SKUSA SuperNationals winner Tom Dyer (GP) made his first lap without a transponder, and once equipped with one he was only able to post the sixth fastest lap.

Bray was able to grab the holeshot to begin heat one as he darted just in front of Dunford as they entered the opening corner. Schoombee worked by Dunford through the opening lap, exchanging positions once again as they began lap two. Bray got away on the cold tires and the shuffling going on behind him helped his cause. Schoombee continued to fall back, losing third to Leesmann and eventually dropping to sixth at the end. The top two ran unchallenged for the remainder of the race with Bray taking the win by over a second. Leesmann fell to fourth as Dyer was able to take the spot in the closing laps, with Ryan Phinny (Wild Kart) charging to fifth.
