Fischer Earns First ProKart Challenge North Victory at Prairie City
Tuesday, 29 March 2011 08:06
Nearly every category at the second round of the Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge North program - contested at the All Star Karting facility in Prairie City, CA - saw a new winner. The competitors in the seven divisions battled wet conditions throughout the race day, providing an added challenge to the technical 3/4-mile ‘Grand Prix’ circuit – with all drivers in attendance earning a 100-point ‘rain’ bonus toward the season ending championship. Leading the way for those first-time winners on March 26 was TaG Senior driver TJ Fischer, who earned his first series victory. The lone exception was S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto driver Jared Woolf, earning his second straight feature win in the category.

Bronson Eggert led the way during the Peterson Wealth Management-sponsored TaG Senior qualifying session, posting a 50.207-lap to earn the pole position for heat one. Fischer was just a bit off, as both posted faster times than round one winner Austin Elliott. Eggert led all 12 laps of heat one, while Fischer fell to fourth early but regained the spots he lost to Elliott and Jess Peterson. Fischer inherited the top spot when both Eggert and Peterson were unable to start the second heat with mechanical issues, running to the win with Elliott in tow. Fischer continued on through the main event, going wire to wire from the pole position to outrun Elliott for his first series victory. Shelby Sander completed her series debut with a third place finish and the second straight event with a female driver on the podium for the class.

SKUSA Announces Rudolph as Pro Tour Director of Competition
Saturday, 26 March 2011 08:33
Superkarts! USA is proud to announce the addition of karting legend Alan Rudolph to the management staff of its Pro Tour, which is set to kick off the 2011 season in Tucson, Arizona late April with the second annual SpringNationals. The veteran racer and karting instructor will act as the Director of Competition, managing the on-track staff of race directors and corner workers while overseeing the action from Race Control.

“I’m thrilled that we have been able to bring Alan into our program, and I know this will help take our Pro Tour up another notch,” commented Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA President. “Alan’s extensive experience as a driver and an educator will make him the perfect link to our drivers, as he knows what happens out on the track and how to communicate with the competitors in order to provide a best platform for racing. He’ll be going to bat for the drivers to make sure the program is providing them with the experience they are looking for. We’re also going to leverage Alan’s significant talents to help work with our Junior drivers, giving them some instruction, guidance and support throughout the year.

Rudolph is the Chief Instructor at the Bondurant Kart Racing School and has raced karts and cars for more than 20 years. His resume is stacked with wins in programs such as the Rock Island Grand Prix King of the Streets, SKUSA ProMoto Tour, World Superkart Challenge and the legendary Quincy in the Park events.

All Star Karting Circuit Gearing Up for Round Two of ProKart Challenge North
Friday, 18 March 2011 13:17
Next weekend will welcome a second new facility to the Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge North program for the 2011 season. All Star Karting in Rancho Cordova, California – east of downtown Sacramento – will host round two of the PKC North series on March 25-26. Round one last month at the Kinsmen Kart Club facility in Dixon brought together regular and new competitors to the opening event, in addition to new series winners. With a second new location in as many events, more new talent is expected to battle in the nine categories offered over the weekend.

SKUSA will utilize the 3/4-mile ‘Grand Prix’ circuit of the All Star Karting facility – home of the Prairie City Kart Club – which offers up to four different configurations. All Star Karting President Joey Hand is a veteran karter and professional sports car driver. With his family and friends at his side to help with the day-to-day operations, the atmosphere is a fun, family-oriented place with plenty of strong, local competitors. Hand, an established karter and reigning co-winner at the 2011 Rolex 24 hours of Daytona 24, knows that karting is an established sport of its own, in addition to helping build the future stars of motorsports. This type of attitude is exactly what the SKUSA organization welcomes within its members, race programs and tracks.

“SKUSA is excited to be offering another new venue for our racers,” commented Tom Kutscher of Superkarts! USA. “The Hand family is first-class and the racers of the Prairie City Kart Club have welcomed us with open arms to their facility. Next weekend should be another positive event for our organization and the sport as a whole. I can’t wait to greet the returning drivers from round one as well as the newcomers from the PCKC.”

Multiple First Wins at ProKart Challenge South Willow Springs Event
Wednesday, 16 March 2011 08:20
A number of drivers earned their first victories of the season at the second round of the Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge South series on March 12. The Willow Springs International Motorsports Park kart track was the location of the event, always a circuit known to produce great racing. Saturday’s racing did not disappoint – with eight of the 11 categories welcoming different winners from the opening event at Adams – further establishing the tough competition within the SKUSA organization. Those who repeated their triumphs were TaG Senior championship leader Travis Lowe, Howie Idelson (G1) and Micah Hendricks (S5).

Lowe was challenged on the day in the Tony Kart West-sponsored TaG Senior division by veteran karter and former two-time SKUSA SuperNationals TaG Master champion Billy Cleavelin. The elder statesman squeaked out the pole position by just 0.055-seconds with his 44.125-lap time. The two stood out from the rest of the pack, allowing for a one-on-one day through the heat races and the feature. Cleavelin led most of the heat race laps, taking both wins over Lowe. From the pole position, Cleavelin set the pace during the first half of the 20-lap main event. Lowe put on the pressure in the second half, stealing the top spot from Cleavelin on lap 16. The younger Lowe was able to put some distance over Cleavelin in the closing laps – to take the victory by half a second. Chris Cricca overcame a poor start to drive from sixth to win the battle for third.

The Extreme Karting-sponsored S1 Pro Stock Moto class was also a two-driver affair, with reigning champion Clinton Schoombee and last year’s TaG Senior champ Phil Giebler doing battle. Giebler had the edge in qualifying with a 42.665-lap time, 84-thousandths quicker than Schoombee. Grabbing the holeshot in the opening heat, Schoombee led all 12 laps of the first heat, and then repeated the feat in the second heat with Giebler in tow. Starting the feature race, Schoombee was great off the line once again, leaving Giebler to pick up the pieces. Schoombee kept up a consistent pace while recording the fast lap of the race to earn the victory by over one second ahead of Giebler. Peter Abba earned his second straight podium finish, out-running Ryon Beachner for the third spot while Adams winner Brad Dunford placed fifth.
