SKUSA SummerNationals Line Up Continues to Develop
Sunday, 04 July 2010 09:58
The first annual Superkarts! USA SummerNationals is promising to provide an early look at the on-track battles that the organization will likely see at its SuperNationals in November. The SKUSA staff will be heading for USA International Raceway in Shawano, WI in just about two weeks (June 16-18) and they are thrilled that the SummerNationals is expected to see a solid influx of local drivers for the race, pitting them up against the top drivers from their own ProKart Challenge, Mountain and the Central States regional programs. Add in the confirmed participation of NASCAR stars Jamie McMurray and AJ Allmendinger, and this race could be a solid pre-cursor of things to come in Las Vegas. SKUSA has an assortment of plans in place to make the SummerNationals an enjoyable experience for everyone who treks to Shawano to join in on the party.

“We’d love to officially welcome everyone to come and join us in Shawano for the SummerNationals,” offers Tom Kutscher, SKUSA President. “There’s a lot of crazy stuff going on in karting right now and as I am watching it unfold, I can remember exactly why we started our ProKart Challenge program in 2005. Karting should be about having fun, and that’s what we try to offer our customers when they come race with us. We had a great time at Infineon in April during the SpringNationals, and our approach to the SummerNats is no different. It’s going to be a fun summer vacation! We’ll do a little golfing, enjoy some BBQ with our karting friends, new and old, and we’ll get the chance to hit a great racetrack for some hardcore competition. That’s what the Pro Tour is all about!”

Central States Challenge Attacks Gateway International Raceway
Thursday, 01 July 2010 13:03
The second event of the season for the Superkarts! USA Central States Challenge took competitors from across the Midwest to the arch city - St. Louis - and the Gateway International Raceway for round three of the series. Contested over two days, racers competed on a temporary circuit inside the facility that incorporated the oval, road course and other paved areas. Drivers were given plenty of track time Saturday to get accustom to the long and challenging course before qualifying took place at the end of the day. Two heat races and the main event on Sunday decided the winners for the event.

Evan Walters was one of the winners to leave Gateway as he made his first series start and scored the feature victory in S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto. The event began with Derek Crockett as the driver to beat following qualifying with a 52.275-lap time. Walters was second in the order with point leader Lukas Johnson third. Crockett however would be unable to compete in the races following an engine failure Sunday morning during warm-ups. Johnson took advantage as he would go on to win both heat races. In the final, Johnson and Walters went back and forth for the lead. Lap traffic would come into play and Walters took advantage. Taking the lead, he would hold on to the checkered flag to score the victory over Johnson and Kyle Gnau.

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.
