Central States Challenge Set for Back-to-Back Weekends to Close Out 2010
Thursday, 02 September 2010 08:14
The final leg of the 2010 season is just around the corner for the Superkarts! USA Central States Challenge. The final two weeks will complete its third season as a SKUSA regional program with the seventh and final round to take place September 11-12 at the I-55 Speedway karting track in Pevely, Missouri. With many of the regular series competitors calling the 0.55-mile course their home track, the competition level is sure to be at its best as the championships for the eight series categories will be decided.

Prior to traveling to the facility located south of downtown St. Louis, the series will be in attendance at this weekend’s Rock Island Grand Prix in the Quad Cities area. Considered to be the world’s largest street race, a number of SCSC competitors will be in attendance to bring home the coveted ‘Rock’ trophy. SKUSA Central States Challenge will be supporting the eKartingNews.com Trackside Live (www.ekartingnews.com/live) broadcast throughout the two-day event over Labor Day weekend.

PKC North to Wrap Up 2010 Over Labor Day Weekend in Sonoma
Friday, 27 August 2010 14:23
Coming off the very successful 2010 edition of the ProKart Challenge West Coast Shootout, the ProKart Challenge North regional program will wrap up its 6-race season over the Labor Day weekend (September 3-4) at the Jim Russell International Karting Center in Sonoma, California. The event at the Infineon Raceway facility is sure to be a solid one, with it tapped as the final Superkarts! USA west coast regional race prior to the SKUSA SuperNationals in November. Above all, championships for all nine regional categories will be decided with the final laps around the ‘National’ circuit of the JRIKC complex.

The headline S1 Pro Stock Moto category has been largely the domain of Fritz Leesmann since the opening round in February. The former ICC national contender made the move to the Stock Moto program this season and has not lost a beat. While he has not won since the first round, Leesmann has stood second on the podium in the last three events – including the PKC West Coast Shootout. Barring any issues during the final round, Leesmann should clinch the title – though he will have Brett ‘The Jet’ Buckwalter lurking nearly. Moving from TaG Senior back to the shifter ranks, Buckwalter has had an impressive 2010 season thus far, with three podiums in five events.

Similar to Leesmann, Matt Alcorn has been head of the class in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto division. Alcorn has accumulated three podium finishes, including two main event victories, in five races. Though he struggled at the PKC Shootout, Alcorn will look to bounce back with a victory to clinch the class championship. Neil Joseph and Cameron Pringle have been strong as of late, both recording two podium finishes in the last three events. Each have a victory on the season, as well, but only Joseph is close enough to pressure Alcorn for the title at the finale.

Crockett and Weber Continue Winning Streak in Central States Challenge
Friday, 27 August 2010 01:00
The penultimate round of the 2010 Superkarts! USA Central States Challenge took the program to a new facility - the Precision Driving Center outside Kansas City - over the August 21-22 weekend. The event brought together series regulars and local stars in seven categories around the multi-configuration circuit.

The event, however, began with troubling news as the Mayton family - from Flint Hill, MO - was involved in a major accident on Interstate-70 near Columbia Friday night traveling to the Kansas City area for the event. Austin Mayton, the point leader in the TaG Cadet category heading into the event - along with his parents (John and Rebecca) and two-year old brother (Drew) - were traveling in their RV when the incident occurred. Rebecca was driving the vehicle and sustained serious injuries and had to be extracted from the driver seat. While all John, Austin and Drew walked away with minor scraps and bruises, Rebecca suffered two collapsed lungs and severely broken legs among other injuries. Since being transported to the hospital, she has undergone a number of surgeries. Recent updates have her breathing on her own however the condition of her broken legs is still questionable. The entire Central States Challenge family sends their thoughts and prayers to the Mayton family and hope for a full and speedy recovery for Rebecca.

Stock Moto Master Class Tops 60 for SKUSA SuperNationals XIV
Wednesday, 25 August 2010 08:19
It would be hard to argue the fact that this has been a tough year for the sport of karting. The economic issues that are facing the country have affected karting’s participation numbers all over the nation, which makes the current excitement surrounding the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals a potentially positive cap to the 2010 season. SKUSA is thrilled to announce that the continuing growth of the S4 Stock Moto Master category has demanded its expansion to a pair of race groups for this year’s SuperNationals, which will be held on the grounds of the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 17-21. After confirming that the S4 class had reached its 40-entry capacity back on August 10, SKUSA stated that it would begin adding new potential entrants to a waiting list. The response was rapid, as this list topped more than 20 drivers within a week. SKUSA will now be capping the S4 class at a maximum of 80 entries, and the current entry total in S4 is now over 60 entries (as wait listers were notified first). Furthermore, based on the fact that both TaG Senior and TaG Junior are expected to reach their capacity limits next, there will likely be no other class caps extended for this event, due to race day time constraints.

“It’s hard to express how great it is to see that so many ‘veteran’ drivers are excited about SKUSA and the S4 program,” admits Tom Kutscher, SKUSA president. “The moto shifter class was where I started with Superkarts! USA when I was racing, and I’m thrilled to see a full field for the SuperNationals. The big numbers are simply proving the quality and attraction of the Stock Moto program. I think this is also a little preview of what we’re going to see on the SKUSA Pro Tour circuit in 2011. The Tour is going to be big next year – and the S4 grid is going to be packed!”
