Schoombee and Giebler Extend ProKart Challenge South Point Leads with Victories at Buttonwillow
Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:57
With the summer season now in full swing, the Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge South is reaching the final few legs of the 2010 season. Started back in January, the six-race championship series hosted the fifth round of the tour at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park kart track in Southern California. The turnout brought together the solid core of top-notch drivers and teams that make up the PKC program. Showing the way in the headline divisions were the point leaders heading into the weekend – Clinton Schoombee and Phil Giebler – as both took home the feature victories in the S1 Pro Stock Moto and TaG Senior categories.

Schoombee was untouchable on the day in S1 as he swept the event’s activities. From qualifying, where he posted a fast lap of 47.097, Schoombee was the class of the field. Tommy Thompson was the only driver to stay within reach throughout the day, coming in just over a tenth back of Schoombee’s qualifying pace. Schoombee would lead green-to-checkered in both heat races, with Thompson running in tow. Clean off the line, Schoombee continued his run at the point to lead all 20 laps of the main event for his second-straight feature win and third of the year. Unable to attack early, Thompson held his ground in the runner-up spot for a third straight race – with Brad Dunford posting his third podium finish of the season.

Kistler Scores Debut SKUSA Mountain Region Victory at IMI
Friday, 25 June 2010 01:00
The second round of the Superkarts! USA Mountain Region took place this past weekend (June 19-20) under perfect Colorado weather at the very fast IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono. The two days of action was a clean of any rough driving or series incidents, sending everyone home safe Sunday evening. Topping the result sheets at the end of the weekend were debut victories by Matt Kistler and Rory Mackey in the competitive S2 and TaG Senior categories while Christian Schurman scores win number two on the season in S5.

Taking a two-year lay off of racing for college, the talented local shifterkart driver returned to make his debut at the SKUSA MR program in S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto. His debut put him at the top of the time sheets as he secured the pole position with a 51.656-lap, over two-tenths quicker than Cory Milne and Christian Bird. Kistler went flag-to-flag in both 10-lap heat races by a comfortable margin over Milne with round one winner James Michael Sullivan and Sabre Cook each running third. The 20-lap main event was all Kistler as he led each lap to score the victory by 12-seconds over Cook with Milne taking the final podium spot over Logan Jones and Sullivan.

ProKart Challenge South Coming Down to the Wire
Friday, 18 June 2010 13:06
The chase for the 2010 ProKart Challenge South titles are heating up as the series prepares for the fifth round of the six-event series. On June 25-26, the Superkarts! USA Southern California regional program will head to the Buttonwillow Raceway Park to compete on the challenging 7/10-mile kart track. The fifth round will be important for those looking to establish themselves as the championship leader, with the program counting all six rounds toward the title standings. With points counted each time the drivers hit the track, Buttonwillow will sort out the contenders from the pretenders.

As it should be, the headline category – S1 Pro Stock Moto – has the closest battle heading into Buttonwillow. SKUSA SpringNationals race winner Clinton Schoombee holds the point lead by a slim five points over Tommy Thompson. Schoombee has two feature wins to his credit, while Thompson has yet to taste victory but has been the more consistent driver over the first four rounds. Lurking behind are Brad Dunford and Peter Abba, waiting for the top two to make any mistakes and capitalize on them. TaG Senior has been just as close, with the veteran leading the young rising star. SKUSA Pro Tour championship leader Phil Giebler holds the top spot in the PKC South chase as well, holding a 28 point advantage over Kyle Shriver. Giebler has one win along two other podium finishes, while Shriver has yet to score a victory.

Toft and Jadallah Score First Wins of Season at Round Four of PKC
Wednesday, 16 June 2010 07:56
Event after event, the ProKart Challenge program continues to provide excitement at tracks throughout the state of California. With a month to prepare for this past weekend’s fourth round of the ProKart Challenge North series, the competitors stepped up to the plate to put on a great show around the ‘Reverse National’ circuit at the Jim Russell International Karting Center at the Infineon Raceway facility. Never a disappointment is the headline categories of the S1 Pro Stock Moto and TaG Senior divisions. For a fourth straight race, the S1 group produced a different victor – this time former series champ Jason Toft taking the checkered flag, while young NorCal star Jordan Jadallah stood on the podium for the first time at a PKC North event in TaG Senior.

The hot and windy race day unfolded with a newcomer to the S1 category, former national champion Alex Speed, taking the pole position. Speed’s lap of 47.858 put him just ahead of point leader Fritz Leesmann and Toft on the time sheet. Once the wheel-to-wheel action began, Speed was shuffled back early with round two winner Nic LeDuc joining the fight. After LeDuc led the opening three laps, Toft held the point for two circuits before Leesmann secured the spot for the first heat win. From the outside row one grid spot, LeDuc once again showed the way to begin the second heat race. Speed was better in the opening lap this time around and challenged for the second spot with Leesmann. Once around him, Speed took over the lead from LeDuc on lap six, going on to take the win over Brett Felkins and Toft – who came from well back in the field after the first lap – while Leesmann fell to fourth in the order. The complexity of the main event changed after the first lap, as Speed slowed and would retire with a mechanical failure. This allowed Toft to assume the point and he would go on to lead the entire 20-lap main event for his first victory of the season. Leesmann was second with LeDuc outrunning Felkins for the final podium spot.

SKUSA Confirms Additional Plans for SummerNationals at Shawano
Monday, 14 June 2010 14:16
With its new Pro Tour having been successfully launched back in April at Infineon Raceway with a packed paddock of happy customers, the Superkarts! USA staff has spent the last six weeks putting together plans for the second round of their national series – the Mothers’ Polish SummerNationals. The next event will be held at the wildly-popular USA International Raceway in Shawano, WI, in July and following the release of some interesting track news early last week, SKUSA was prompted to handle a minor situation, one that has already been rectified. Over the past 10 days, Superkarts! USA president Tom Kutscher has been in constant contact with the track management at USAIR after word hit the streets that the facility had been put into receivership. Thanks to this dedicated communication, SKUSA is happy to report that the SummerNationals will continue on at Shawano as scheduled.

“As we are with all of our venues, I have been in regular contact with the track staff and ownership at USA International Raceway, having visited the facility in May,” confirmed Kutscher. “This situation is unfortunate, but the receivership group is thrilled that we are coming to the track in July and they’ve pledged to welcome us with open arms. We’ve got a bunch of great things planned for the weekend, and I’m really happy that we’ll be able to maintain our program in Shawano. It’s an incredible track, and I can’t wait to see our drivers attack it in July.”
