|Pit Spots Reservations, Pit Rules & Tent Rentals for SuperNats 20|
As always, we are working like crazy here at SKUSA headquarters – not just to prepare for the biggest kart race in the world, but the 20th Anniversary!
We are excited to be working with the Las Vegas Convention Center again – with our event located in the parking lot right across the street from the Westgate Hotel & Casino, our host hotel. And with more than 550 racers expected, our goal is to fit everyone in as efficiently as possible, while giving the drivers and teams maximum exposure and minimum exertion.
Food Services & CateringLike last year, SKUSA has arranged to have food and beverage vendors on site throughout this event, per Convention Center rules. Click here for more details, and especially if you would like to arrange catering for your team or guests. AGAIN, there are strict rules about bringing in these items.
Rental TentsNOTE: Source 1 Events (formerly Nevada Tent) is again our EXCLUSIVE tent rental company. NO OTHER TENT VENDORS WILL BE ALLOWED ON SITE. Their contact info, as well as some new 2016 requirements, are posted below. They also have additional rental items -- like tables, chairs, linens, and rental equipment. Contact them ASAP to order what you will need, based on your requested pit space. We will work with them to finalize the size and location of your rental tent and equipment.
Fuel In The Pits? ABSOLUTELY NOT!Our usual TIGHT restrictions from the Clark County Fire Department means ABSOLUTELY NO FUEL IS ALLOWED TO BE BROUGHT INTO THE PITS! ALL Trailers will be inspected and turned away (or parked off-site) if fuel is found on board. The only exception is 5 or less gallons of generator fuel per trailer (and a minimal amount in kart fuel tanks). All fuel/oil needed for this event will be sold on site every day and stored in the fuel barn.
Additionally, Please refer to SKUSA rulebook update10.4.1.3.1 with regards to Fire Extinguishers, as these rules will be strictly enforced:
10.4.1.3.1 “Fire Extinguishers: Every entrant’s pit area shall have a minimum of one 5-lb type ABC rated fire extinguisher for every 400 square feet of pit area. Fire extinguishers must be visible and accessible at all times. Competitors with trailers over 20-ft long shall have a minimum of one 20-lb type ABC fire extinguisher for the trailer in addition to one 5-lb unit for each 400 square feet of pit area. All competitors within a pit area that are found to be noncompliant at an event will be removed from competition until in compliance.
A Pit Spot Drawing is MandatoryFor every driver and/or team needing a pit spot, if you know EXACTLY how much space you will need for your pit spot, AND IF ALL DRIVERS IN YOUR PIT SPOT ARE ALREADY REGISTERED for the race, you are ready to submit your pit request. Please fax (or scan and email) a complete drawing to the SKUSA office. What your drawing must include is described below, AND WILL BE REJECTED IF IT IS INCOMPLETE. If you are faxing a drawing, it’s a good idea to call to verify receipt. Fax # again is 951-491-0809 and phone # again is 951-491-0808. Please do not send a note that just says, “I want what I had last year.” All pit layout details, including a complete driver list, AND ANY SPECIAL REQUESTS must be submitted IN WRITING for approval. The general area pits are mostly rows of spots 10’W x 40’D, although there are a few sections that vary in size. Your drawing MUST reflect multiples of these areas AS WELL AS SPECIFY YOUR TOP 3 PREFERRED LOCATIONS by row and space number, per the attached pit map.

Tent PermitsAs some of you have already heard, there are some new rules and requirements for SELF-OWNED tents and tent permits. Click HERE for these new rules, and HERE for a sample flame-retardant certificate.
Pit Move-In/Move-OutPit move in will begin on Sunday November 13th for the big rigs ONLY (Big Rigs are defined as 40’ trailers or larger), and Monday, the 14th for everyone else. Full move-in must be complete by Tuesday evening, Nov. 15th at 6pm. Pits will be closed and no further pitting or placement of trailers will take place after this time, as practice starts Wednesday morning, the 16th (without prior approval from SKUSA).
Move out will begin Sunday night, Nov. 20th at approx. 4:30pm (at the conclusion of podium awards at scales and final clearance at Tech), and must be complete by 1pm on Monday, Nov. 21st (keep your wristband on for access to the parking lot on Monday for move-out). If you need access to the pit area beyond these hours, contact the Operations Director (Stan). Please see the full event schedule posted HERE. NOTE: The Sunday night festivities include an awards presentation for the 2016 Pro Tour Champions (top 3 in each class).
NOTE: Due to insurance regulations and permit stipulations enforced by Clark County, no unauthorized vehicles are allowed to move within the pit area – and all lanes must remain open and unobstructed – while the track is hot. Additionally, NO early move-out can take place, as described above. In order to secure personal belongings and safety, the pit area will be locked down until official move-out begins. Any violation of this policy will affect future participation in any and all Superkarts! USA events.
The SKUSA office personnel will be in touch to confirm each pit reservation submitted, and will secure payment with you when we have you placed on the pit map.
