Karting is a sport for all ages, and Superkarts! USA understands that with the offering of the Master categories since its early days. Under the latest era of SKUSA, the S4 Master Stock Moto has become a who’s who of former ProMoto Tour days and ushering in a new crop of drivers that we saw in their younger years in the early 2000s. This year’s field is stacked with talent once again, with nearly half of the 59 drivers qualifying for the 40-kart grid on SuperSunday in 2014. The Super Master division was introduced on the regional level in 2015, with 1/3 of the drivers qualified by their over 45-years of age including former SuperNationals winners. As the category progresses, Superkarts! USA is sure to be promoting and recognizing these drivers at the SuperNationals in 2015 and beyond.  Read full story on eKartingNews.com

The Superkarts! USA ladder system established in 2010 for the Fikse Wheels Pro Tour has helped to create a pool of shifterkart drivers for today and into the future. The first step on the path is the S5 Junior Stock Moto category, created in 2007. While not enjoying the large fields like TaG Cadet or TaG Junior, each year develops the future and now current stars of the S2 and S1 categories in SKUSA competition. This year’s crop of young drivers are all coming in with the goal of gaining experience for their future, and if possible, enjoy the thrill of standing on the podium at the SuperNationals in Las Vegas.

2014 SuperNationals S5 winner Raul Guzman became the first Mexican driver to win in the category, and the eighth different winner in the eight years it has competed at the Las Vegas spectacular. Graduated to the S2 division in 2015, the top position of the SuperNationals podium is no vacant, waiting for the next young talent to take the position. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: SKUSA SuperNationals XIX – Preview Series – TaG Junior

Junior categories returned to the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals in 2008 when the event returned to the Rio with TaG Junior introduced that year. Every year, the division keeps getting more and more intense as these teenage drivers raise the stakes against one another, all trying to become part of history in Las Vegas. 2015 is going to be no different with nearly 70 drivers on the list to compete at this year’s SuperNationals, all vying to become the eighth different driver to claim the top step on the podium come SuperSunday.

Last year’s performance by American Logan Sargeant was one of dominance, earning his second victory at the SuperNationals, first in class. Sargeant went on to become the first American to win the CIK-FIA KFJ World Championship this September, joining Lake Speed as the only driver from the United States to claim a world title. His graduation to the Senior ranks leaves the top of the podium open for anyone to take it. Read full story on eKartingNews.com

 
EKN Exclusive: SKUSA SuperNationals XIX – Preview Series – TaG Cadet

The largest category growing in the United States is TaG Cadet. Year after year, an influx of young competitors jump into the quickest category available for kids under the age of 13 to begin molding themselves as a true driver. This year’s field is sold out again, and will feature 85 drivers all vying to be part of the SuperSunday field and to make a little bit of history.

No driver has yet to win back-to-back events, and 2015 will be no different with defending winner Guiseppe Fusco not making the trip from Italy to compete. This will mark the sixth different winner in as many races since the class was introduced in 2010. The previous two victories have gone to non-North Americans, and with 35% of the field coming from another continent, the chances of that happening are not too far off.
