Fifteen years ago, on the temporary track outside the Rio Hotel and Casino, the TaG Master category made its debut at the SuperNationals. The division has continued to grow year after year, battling with the difficulties of engine competition while welcoming top talent from around the world. Last year was the first time that the class was expanded to welcome more than the 44 drivers in a single race group, having been the first class to sell out year after year. A record 66 drivers are registered for this year’s X30 Master division, featuring several former winners and podium finishers, along with some new younger names that may spoil the fun for the older crowd. Over half entered were not in the field a year ago, and 16 of them are under the age of 35. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 21 – Preview Series – S4 Master
Tuesday, 07 November 2017 12:44

The S4 Master Stock Honda category has seen large numbers since it was introduced at the SKUSA SuperNationals in 2006. The class eventually grew beyond the 44-driver mark until last year when the S4 Super Master division was added. Now, the class is experiencing its lowest entry total at the SuperNationals (23 drivers). This downslide in entry is said to be for a number of reasons, all of which revolve around the future of the CR125 in SKUSA competition. That being said, the competition level at this year’s SuperNats in the S4 category is outstanding. Four former winners, four former champions, and a number of podium finishers are back to battle once again in Vegas. Read full story on eKartingNews.com

Like the Micro Swift category, the S4 Super Master Stock Honda division is making its second appearance at the SuperNationals. From the youngest, we now move to the eldest; the die-hard motorsport enthusiasts who will take on Sin City once again. Last year’s field nearly reached 30 drivers in its SuperNationals debut, and there is a slight decrease for this year. The positive is that nearly half of the competitors are making their S4 Super Master debut at the SuperNationals, and the competition level has certainly increased with the return of entire podium and new names to the division.

EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 21 – Preview Series – X30 Junior

The 2016 SKUSA SuperNationals came down to a wild finish in the X30 Junior category as a light sprinkle of rain covered the Las Vegas Convention Center parking lot. The changing conditions sent some drivers off into the barriers, while those who found a way to tip-toe around the damp circuit were able to capitalize and secure podium finishes. In the end, Florida’s Tyler Gonzalez came away with the victory in his first Junior start at the SuperNationals. Coming off that victory, the SRC / Tony Kart driver took 2017 by storm, earning a FWT championship to start before scoring the US Rotax Grand Nationals victory, and challenging for the SKUSA Pro Tour championship with one win. In the eight previous attempts, no X30 Junior / TaG Junior driver has been able to repeat as SuperNationals winner. Breaking that streak will be the goal for Gonzalez.

The 2016 edition of the Mini Swift class battle at the SuperNationals kept parents and the fans on the edge of their seats until the final corner, with the race won at the line by Canadian Thomas Nepveu. Last year’s field was full of ‘veteran’ Cadet drivers although many of them moved up into the Junior ranks for this year or have done so prior to the SuperNationals. As a result of the mass graduation, the field this year has 40 drivers making their first start at the Las Vegas spectacular, bringing in a concern for those not familiar with the temporary circuit style of racing. The talent pool is still up there, as it is every year, with nearly half the field coming in from outside the United States. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
